Product Description

The Shimpo FGS-1000H vertical manual test stand with turn wheel is for use with Shimpo FGV-HX and FGE-HX Javelin, FGV-XY Dart 2.0, and FGE-X Dart series force gauges (not included) as well as other compatible gauges for tensile and compression force testing. The stand operates by rotating a turn wheel, which provides a more gradual application of force during testing than a lever. It has a 1,000 lb. (500 kg) maximum capacity, a 0.1" (3 mm) travel speed, and a 6" (152 mm) maximum travel. The user can adjust the vertical clearance between the force gauge and the sample up to 13" (330 mm) to accommodate samples with a range of sizes. The stand has a 6" (152 mm) wide sample platform, and the stand's base adapter block can accept a variety of attachments (sold separately) for different types of force testing. The stand is made from steel, which provides resistance to wear and corrosion. It weighs 56 lb. (25 kg) and measures 33.0 x 8.0 x 8.0 inches (838 x 203 x 203 mm, H x W x D, where H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is the width, the horizontal distance from left to right; and D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back). It comes with three Allen wrenches and screws for assembly.

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.

Good quality peice of equipment - excellent construction. Could be improved with digital redout attachement featuers to accept standard DROs, but I suspect Shimpo does it that way to make you buy there own. Aamazing Amazon price; but probably not worth its normal price of $1200 or so...
