FGS-100E Models

The Series FGS-100E Vertical, Motorized Force Test Stands combined with the Shimpo line of superior quality force gauges, create a complete force measurement system capable of handling the most precise testing applications.

The test stand’s all steel construction makes them remarkably rugged while performing with precision, providing the reliability to tackle a multitude of applications.

The FGS-100E's possess simplified operation with their 7 button key-pad and emergency stop button, eliminating lengthy training typical of similar test stands. With four modes of operation (manual, jog, single cycle, continuous) various single tests or repetitive tests can be achieved and selected with the push of a button.

The user can quickly change the speed units displayed on the LCD from mm/min to inches/min to satisfy their test requirement or preference. With manually adjustable high and low stop limits, the test stands are designed for minimal time necessary to adjust for the next test. The FGS-100E motorized stands have a capacity rating of 110 lbs (50 kgf) in either fast [0.78-23.60 in/min (20- 600 mm/min)] movement operation or slow speed [0.23-7.00 in/ min (6-180 mm/min)] operation models. When connected to a Shimpo FGV Force Gauge, the gauges programmable overload setting is communicated to the test stand, allowing the stand to stop at the overload set point and prevent potential damage to the gauge’s sensor.

Stand with Optional Grip Performing Tension Test
  • Simplified 7 button key-pad with emergency safety stop provides a user-friendly platform that does not require extensive training
  • Compatibility with nearly all manufacturers' force gauges enables flexibility in testing applications
  • Field selectable inches/min or mm/min allows user preference or to change as needed per test requirement
  • Large 100-230 VAC power capability provides flexible installation; eliminates power transformer
  • Quick-adjust manual upper and lower limits eliminates set-up time for the next test
  • Compact, modular design reduces weight, footprint and cost of stand

FGS-VC Models

The FGS-VC 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-VC’s 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.

Stand with Optional Grip Performing Peel Test
  • User friendly controls and software allows hands off operation, reduces training time, user errors and speeds up tests
  • The wide speed range means only one stand required for a majority of testing needs
  • Easy install force gauge bracket allows for multiple test ranges to be quickly used on one stand
  • FGT-VC software provides graphing analysis of one or several tests. Data can be stored for later analysis.
  • Comparator function provides instant pass/fail result allowing for usage on production lines.
  • Combining with FGE or FGV force gauges with the stand, overload limit communication is achieved, eliminating potential to damage the gauge accidentally during a test.
