The TA.XTExpress: Cost-effective quality control starts here

Make SMS' TA.XTExpress the foundation of your on-going quality control procedures

Perfect for use on a production line or in a lab, the Express offers cost-effective and fast analysis for routine texture measurement applications. What makes the Express so special?

It is cost-effective yet very flexible.

For quality control and routine texture applications, the Express has all the functionality and flexibility that the Plus offers. Use is for simple and fast analysis.

Use it with or without a computer

The Express can be controlled with either a keypad, Exponent Lite Express software, or the Expression texture analysis program. Use it directly on the production line or in a laboratory setting.

The Express' easy-to-use interface makes training a snap.

The Express' learning curve is short and sweet. Training new operators to conduct tests immediately after unpacking the instrument is quick and easy.

If you are looking for rapid, automated quality control analysis, the Express was built for you

Quality control test results are often needed on the spot. The Express uses built-in test profiles to quickly capture and analyze test date. The intuitive user interface, robust data analysis and exporting, and error-free operation, helps you easily keep up with an increasing demand and produce visually-appealing reports in the blink of an eye.

Standardize your on-going Quality Control procedures with the Express

The Express can help measure textural quality, identify source and batch variation, and predict consumer acceptability. Results can be analyzed automatically using either built-in standards, such as TPA and Bloom, or product specific procedures unique to your products. Operators can follow preset test procedures to make production adjustments on the spot.

Use it for new product development too

When it's not being used on the production line, bring it back to the lab for product development. The Express is portable and uses many of the same probes and fixtures available for the Plus and some of the same flexibility.
