Practical Testing Solutions

The Shimadzu Autograph AGS-X series provides superior performance and practical testing solutions for a wide array
of applications. Offering high-level control and intuitive operation, the AGS-X series sets a new standard for strength
evaluations while providing the utmost in safety considerations in a modern, stylish design.

AGS-X Series

  • Short Test Cycle Time – up to 3300 mm/min return speed and 3000mm/min crosshead speed.
  • Short-column Type (Model SC) Added
  • Power-saving Standby Mode Reduces Environmental Stress The AG-Xplus reduces the power consumption in standby mode.
  • Easy Stress and Strain Control – The autotuning of the control parameters in real time based on stress and strain data measured during testing as well as reliable comparison of unknown sample data, without pre-testing. In addition, the autotuning function easily provides the strain control required by ISO 6892-2009.
  • Ultrafast Sampling Catches the Most Sudden Strength Fluctuations – Ultrafast 0.2 msec (5 kHz) sampling captures dramatic fluctuations in test force, such as the failure of brittle materials
  • Eight-fold Increase in Control Resolution Enhances the Reliability of Test Results
  • More Accurate Stress-strain Curves from Small to High Forces
  • Confidence and Reliability

EZ-X Series Tabletop TestersUniveral Testing table top

Compact Testers Offer Precise, High-speed Analysis

New Design

  • The compact size fits easily on tables.
  • Lower table height (20% lower) and larger work space
  • This makes it easier to exchange jigs and samples and to perform a wide variety of operations.

High Performance

  • EZ Test uses a high-precision load cell that guarantees accuracy to within ±0.5% of the indicated value over a wide range from 1/500 to 1/1 of the load cell capacity.
  • Tests can be performed at up to maximum load capacity levels across the entire test speed range from 0.001 to 2000 mm/min (HS model).
  • Maximum test speed: 2000mm/min, Return speed: 3000mm/min (HS model)
  • The high return speed significantly reduces the wait time between tests, even for those with long displacements.
  • EZ Test can measure 1000 data per sec, enabling accurate detection of peak force.

Improved Usability

  • Enhanced usability by the adjustable controller. This allows for adjusting the control panel position and angle to match the posture of the operator.
  • Visual, user-friendly TRAPEZIUMX software
  • 4 software platforms – Single, Cycle, Control, and Texture – enable various types of evaluation.
  • Power-saving function reduces power consumption by over 55% compared to previous models.
