Spring Testers

Mark-10 Spring Testers are designed for compression, tension, and torsion spring testing applications. Configure your tension or compression spring tester from a wide range of test frames, force sensors, grips, and accessories. See the list of items below for details.

Mark-10 Spring Testers consist of the following:

1. Test frame - produces the force necessary for the test.

2. Control panel - used to create and run tests, manage results, create reports, and manually control the test frame.

3. Force sensor - series FS05 and R07 force sensors measure both tension and compression force. They mount directly to Series F test frames.

4. Grips and fixtures - many types of grips are available. All Mark-10 sensors and test frames have fixing threads to allow for alternative fixture mounting.

Typical applications:

Compression spring test using a G1009 compression plate

Tension spring test using two G1077 clevis grips

Torsion spring test using a TSTM-DC and custom grips
