The Shimpo Uni-Plate test stand mounting plate is an accessory for mounting Shimpo MF or EF series analog (also known as mechanical) force gauges on a Shimpo test stand. It can also be used for mounting Ametek Accuforce 3 and Cadet series gauges, Chatillon DFGS and IFIS series gauges, and Mark 10 BG and MG series gauges on a Shimpo test stand. The Shimpo Uni-Plate includes a mounting bracket, four M3x12 Phillips screws, and four M3 flat washers.
Force gauges, also called push-pull gauges or tension gauges, measure the tensile (pull) or compression (push) force applied to an object. They are used to test the strength and functionality of a variety of machines, electronic components, cables, wires, and consumer products in scientific, medical, automotive, quality assurance, and manufacturing applications. A digital force gauge shows the amount of force in digits on the gauge's display. Response time varies among digital force gauges depending on the speed of the processor. An analog (or mechanical) force gauge shows measurements on a calibrated dial. Analog force gauges are not as precise as digital force gauges, but they provide instantaneous measurements and can be used in a wider range of environmental conditions than digital force gauges. Hooks, compression plates, levers, handles, test stands, and other accessories can be used with the gauge for taking measurements on objects with a range of shapes and sizes.
Shimpo Instruments manufactures force, torque, and speed evaluation instruments. The company, founded in 1974 and headquartered in Itasca, IL, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard 9001.
