UH-X/FX Series Static Hydraulic Testers

UH-X/FX Series Static Hydraulic Testers

Shimadzu’s UH-X and UH-FX series hydraulic universal test frames are easy-to-use, economical solutions for high-capacity testing. With an integrated LCD touch panel and controller unit, the UH-X and UH-FX are completely self-contained, reducing footprint and eliminating exposed hydraulic lines. UH-X test frames include enclosed manual grips, whereas UH-FX test frames have actuated open-front hydraulic grips.

UH-X and UH-FX Series:

  • Standard test frames from 200 kN to 2,000 kN (44,000 lbf to 440,000 lbf)
  • Extended height options
  • Enclosed manual grips options
  • Front-open hydraulic grips options
  • Large-capacity test frames over 2,000 kN (440,000 lbf)

Features

LCD Touch Panel

Integrated LCD Touch Panel

A 10.4-inch color touch screen, conveniently positioned on the controller unit with an easy-to-operate graphical user interface, plots Stress vs Strain curves in real time, and enables tensile, compression, or cycle testing without a computer. With the use of a USB memory stick, measurement data are automatically saved, enabling further analysis with Trapezium X Testing Software.


Sampling Rate Graph

High Speed Sampling Rate

While connected with Trapezium X, data can be acquired every 1 msec (1,000 Hz), capturing sudden changes in data.


Strain Control Stress Control Graph

Precise Stress and Strain Control

Real-time auto-tuning of control parameters eliminates the need for preliminary testing and enables quick and easy stress- or strain-controlled testing compliant with ISO 6892.


Key Switch and Emergency Stop Button

All-inclusive Safety Measures

A large emergency-stop button, security key switch, and a safety stopper preventing grip face contact keep the operator safe. An optional safety shield provides a greater level of safety by protecting the operator and preventing access to the test space during testing.


Optional Dial Indicator

Optional Indicator

The optional dial indicator provides another choice for monitoring test progress and includes a large analog test force indicator superimposed with digital test force and peak force indicators.


Trapezium X Universal Testing Software

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.
