Tensile testing is varied in purpose and industry specific. The manner of holding the test specimen and applying the axis of tensile force is what makes the application unique and enables quality assurance at almost any point in any product's lifecycle.
Products and packaging undergo continual revision and improvement, with most companies constantly striving to use less material, simplify their manufacturing processes, and make their products more user friendly.
Tensile testing is arguably the most common test method used in both force measurement and material testing. Tensile testing is used primarily to determine the mechanical behavior of a component, part or material under static, axial loading.
