Shimadzu’s AGS-X series of universal testers combines advanced specifications with a cost-effective, modern design. By incorporating multiple control options, load cells with maximum capacities from 1 N (0.22lbf) to 300 kN (66,000lbf), and the utmost in safety considerations, the AGS-X series delivers practical testing solutions.

The enhanced features of the Autograph AGS-X series testers allow for easier and more efficient testing:

  • Load cells with test force accuracy within ±0.5% over the range 1/1 to 1/500 of the maximum capacity
  • 1 kHz sampling rate ensures no missed strength changes
  • One-touch crosshead stroke limiters for simple adjustment and firm locking
  • Faster crosshead achieves a 1,600 mm/min testing speed and a 2,200 mm/min return speed (20kN frame) to save time with repetitive testing
  • Built-in multi-purpose tray for placing jigs, arranging specimens, and taking notes
  • Common joint for both tensile and compression makes it easier to exchange jigs
  • Adjustable main operation panel for conveniently developing and storing conditions and performing tests without having to be connected to a PC

An expansive selection of grips, compression plates, jigs, extensometers, and other accessories allow configurations to be tailored to almost any application. Comprehensive safety functions, including stroke limit switches, emergency-stop buttons, and safety covers, ensure a safe operating environment.

The Autograph AGS-X testers come standard with Shimadzu’s TRAPEZIUM X materials testing operation software, which quickly obtains and displays testing data in real time. The software allows methods following ASTM, ISO, and JIS standards to be created effortlessly; in addition, tensile, compression, cycle, creep and texture profile example methods are included as standard.
