Product Description

Shimpo introduces its 1000 lbs (2500N, 500KG) capacity manual test stand.

Designed for convenient testing in both TENSION and COMPRESSION, the FGS-1000H is easy to set-up and operate.
With its ability to mount the Shimpo JAVELIN, FGV-1000HX (1000 lbs, 2500N, 500KG) capacity digital force gauge, this system is a great fit for most force testing applications.
A highly accurate turn-wheel gives a precise 0.1 in. travel per revolution. In addition, it's rigged and rugged construction provides repeatable and reliable testing, time after time. The FGS-1000H features fully adjustable height ranges, customizable lengths (for different sample sizes) and the option to add a length/height meter.
With counter sunk (force gauge) mounting holes, a self aligning, pre-tapped sliding sample base plate, the FGS-1000H provides a welcome alternative to utilizing existing force gauges, grips attachments and accessories.
FGS-1000H users can also use all existing ranges of Shimpo FGE/FGV-X and the new Dart 2.0 FGV-0.5 up to FGV-200XY (0.5 lbs to 200 lbs)!
In addition, it will also fit other manufacturers force gauges.

Adjustable range to 13 in. - Ideal for different size tests (samples)
Precision made 1,000 lb. capacity hand wheel - High capacity, with smooth control
6 in. diameter capacity - 6 in. sample platform provides wide sample stage
6 in. stroke - full length stroke for large samples
0.1 in. travel per hand wheel revolution - Maintain precise control under full load
Base adapter block to hold accessories - Compatible with M4, M6, M10, 5/16 - 18, & 10 - 32 threads
Flexible Force gauge mounting - compatible with: Shimpo FGV-HX and FGE/FGV-XY and other manufacturers force gages

Shimpo offers a range of digital gauges to suit every application from very low capacities (0.5 pounds) to high capacities (1,000 pounds). Model features range from the very simple (no computer outputs) to highly sophisticated units that provide memory, a variety of outputs and the ability to compute statistics. All models are known for their strong construction and highly accurate measurements.
