The FGS-220VC Series Motorized Force Test Stands are designed to provide accurate and repeatable results for tension, compression, break and cycle performance tests in various applications. A key feature is a SHIMPO exclusive: a precision made servo gear head and ball screw for precise movement control. The large measurement area plus tall 15.75˝ (400 mm) travel distance allow large, unique parts to be tested. A precise and consistent 0.40-15.75”/min (10-400mm/min) adjustable speed provides for slow tests or quick cycle load testing.
The simple keypad combined with the intuitive on screen operation guides the user through setting up each test. Users can perform standard tests in several automatic or manually selected modes as well as choose higher-end capabilities with the additional dwell time, adjustable acceleration, plus user-defined tests with up to 5 programmed set points.
The FGS-VC’s are flexible as they can be operated by the keypad or through a PC via the FGT-VC software which includes data collection, graphing and statistical analysis. The FGT-VC software program allows graphing of force versus distance and the ability to compare several tests on a single graph. Another great feature of the FGT-VC is the comparator mode which enables quick decision pass /fail determination, ideal for production line testing.
The FGS-220VC can be equipped with various gripping and compression fixtures and are compatible with all SHIMPO Force Gauges as well as most gauges on the market. These features make the new FGS-VC the ideal push/pull tester for the production line or QC lab.
