Shimadzu’s EZ-X series single-column universal test frames provide a convenient solution for low-capacity testing of medical devices, pharmaceuticals, electronics, food, and raw materials. To further support customer requirements, a wide variety of load cells, easy-to-exchange test fixtures, and accessories is available.
Compact and Ergonomic
The EZ-X series’ small footprint is ideal for labs with limited bench space. The open-column design provides easy access to the test frame, making fixture and sample exchange convenient.
Full Line of Test Fixtures
A wide variety of test fixtures, including tensile grips, compression plates, bend fixtures, shear fixtures, and food texture analysis fixtures, is available. In addition, extensometers, deflectometers, and analog signals are seamlessly integrated.
Adjustable Operation Panel
The operation panel has an adjustable position and angle, and enables tensile, compression, or cycle testing without a computer.
High-Performance Load Cells
The EZ-X series boasts Shimadzu’s standard line of interchangeable load cells with ±0.5% accuracy over a wide range of 1/1 to 1/500 of the maximum capacity, guaranteeing quality performance and versatility.
Comprehensive Safety Measures
Safety functions include emergency-stop buttons, limit switches, and collision detection, all designed for operator peace of mind.
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.
