The Autograph AGS-X Series tabletop universal tester performs tensile and compression tests for the rubber, plastic and film industries. Operators can perform a three- or four-point bending test, peeling test and tear tests on various materials, including thermostatic resins. The crosshead has a 1,500 millimeters per minute return speed. An optional jog controller allows handheld control of the crosshead position, easing fine positioning. The tester has precision of ±0.5% of the indicated value, 1/1 to 1/500 load cell rating and newly designed electronics. Compared to previous testers, the heights of the multipurpose tray and table for jig mounting are significantly lower, providing comfort to operators. In addition, the open design of the multipurpose tray surface can accommodate a large number of test specimens and jigs.
