Texture Analyser TMS Pro


The TMS Pro is the flagship of the Texture Analyser range.  When the application calls for precise force, position and speed control, the TMS-Pro is unsurpassed.

The Texture Analyser TMS Pro was designed as an affordable alternative to the very high priced test systems offered by competitors.

With a capacity of 2500 Newtons, (550 lbs.) in compression or tension, the TMS-Pro can handle the toughest applications.  The system comes complete with the Texture Lab Pro (TL-Pro) software package and any size loadcell of your choice.

The TMS-Pro texture analyser accepts the full and expanding line of FTC test cells including the industry standard, FTC Kramer Shear Cell as well as fixtures from our competitors.

Backed by 50 years' experience in texture measurement and application development.

“The TMS-Pro is an important tool during reformulation; we can easily identify which is the most impacted attribute. It makes it easier to make decisions when changing recipes and I would recommend it to others.”

Jennifer (Melander) Keshwani, Ph.D., University of Nebraska-Lincoln

“The simple setup and operation of the TMS-Pro allows my students to focus on learning the theoretical underpinnings of mechanical properties instead of fighting with a finicky test system.”
