FGS-250W Test Stand

The Series FGS-250W Manual Hand Wheel Operated Test Stand

The FGS-250W is specifically designed for tensile and compressive force testing and destructive or failure testing for research applications in a multitude of industries.The FGS-250W movement is created from a trapezoidal screw drive with integral nut. Combined with its top-mounted wheel that smoothly turns with minimal effort, fine, stable resolution is achieved during operation.

The FGS-250W offers dual functionality by being able to be used in either the vertical or horizontal positions with no added equipment required. Simply lay unit on its back and level with the adjustment screw and you now can run horizontal tests. The FGS-250W’s compact footprint and lightweight frame enables ease of movement and usage in a myriad of locations.

Optional accessories include a Digital Scale which accurately tracks distance movement and a Tensile Frame adapter kit which enables extended clearance for tensile tests. NIDEC-SHIMPO offers a variety of grips and fixtures to create the required set-up for your test parameters. The FGS-250W’s maximum 250 lbf (125 kgf) capacity combined with the precision wheel movement operation yields an ideal manual test stand for a full range of lab or production line testing applications.
