Shimadzu’s AGS-X series universal test frames combine advanced specifications with a versatile, modern design and an economical price. By incorporating multiple control options, a wide-capacity range of load cells, the utmost in safety considerations, and an extensive selection of testing accessories, the AGS-X series delivers practical testing solutions for many applications.
The operation panel allows development and storage of tensile, compression, and cycle test methods without a computer. Additionally, for 20 kN to 300 kN test frames, the operation panel enables grip actuation and control of the SIE automatic extensometer.
For higher capacity test frames, the use of a single joint for both tension and compression tests makes fixture exchange easy, decreasing setup time and increasing throughput. Furthermore, the wide load cell range of 1/1 to 1/500 reduces the need for load cell switching.
Table-top models have a large built-in tray, perfect for arranging specimens and taking notes when bench space is limited.
Safety functions include emergency-stop buttons, limit switches, and collision detection, all designed for operator peace of mind. In addition, an optional safety shield with interlocks protects operators from debris and limits access while tests are running.
Common to all Shimadzu universal test frames, Trapezium X universal testing software redefines the user-friendly graphical interface, seamlessly integrating method development, testing, data analysis, and reporting. Visit the Trapezium X page for more information.

Note 1: When the load cell capacity is smaller than the tester load capacity, the former is the maximum test force.
Note 2: Optional expansion boxes can be used to increase the number of channels.
