Shimadzu EZ Test Series (EZ-SX, EZ-LX, EZ-LXHS)

EZ test series

The growth in physical evaluation testing means more fields are now required to undertake such testing, including food, medical device, plastics, electronics, and textiles manufacturers, to name but a few. The multiple combinations of models and different capacity load cells make Shimadzu’s EZ test series of single-column electromechanical universal testers a suitable solution for many materials testing applications.

To further support customer requirements, a wide variety of easy-to-exchange specialized jigs and accessories are available such as tensile grips, compression plates, bending jigs and texture analysis jigs.

Multiple Combinations

The EZ-X series has three distinct models:

  • EZ-SX short-column model with a capacity up to 500 N (up to 110 lbf)
  • EZ-LX long-stroke model with a capacity up to 5 kN (up to 1,100 lbf)
  • EZ-LX HS long-stroke and high-speed model, with a capacity up to 2 kN (up to 440 lbf), and a return speed up to 3,000 mm/min (118 in/min)

High-Performance Load Cells

The use of load cells with accuracy guaranteed to within ±0.5% or ±1% of the indicated force value over a wide range of 1/1 to 1/500 of the rated capacity ensures highly reliable results.

Lightweight and Compact

The compact size of the EZ-X series means they fit easily on table tops. The open and low table height design provides easy access from both sides of the instrument, making it simpler to exchange jigs and samples.

Objective Evaluation Testing

The EZ-X series provides objective numerical test results that can supplement more subjective analysis. An ample selection of test fixtures is offered to support a wide variety of applications.

Test Control Options

Adjustable Controller

An attached controller is included as standard, of which the position and angle can be adjusted to match the posture of the operator. The controller enables alteration of the crosshead position and programming and running of straightforward tests.

Supported by Trapezium X Testing Software

Although the EZ-X series testers have attached controllers, they are also compatible with Shimadzu’s Trapezium X, a comprehensive testing software package.
