Universal Tester

June 8, 2010

The Autograph AGS-X Series tabletop universal tester delivers tensile and compression tests for the rubber, plastic and film industries. The tester allows operators to perform a three- or four-point bending test, peeling test and tear tests on various materials, including thermostatic resins. The tester’s crosshead achieves a 1,500 millimeter per minute return speed, reducing the time required to conduct repetitive testing.

Designed with ergonomics in mind, the tester has a lowered multipurpose tray and table for jig mounting. The open design of the multipurpose tray surface can accommodate a number of test specimens and jigs. The tester also incorporates proprietary software that provides one-touch method selection.
