Model TSB100

Manual Test Stand

The lever operated Force Measurement Test Stand Model TSB100 is an economical solution for quick-action tensile testing and compression testing of up to 100 lbF (500 N) of force. Constructed of rugged components, this test stand is durable enough for the factory floor, yet precise enough for laboratory environments.


  • Compatible with all Mark-10 force gauges, accessories and grips
  • Loading lever can be positioned in 30° increments for ease of operation
  • Mounting holes for bench mounting
  • Optional adjustable travel stops
  • Precision ground rack for smooth precision motion
  • Removable base plate with 25 #10-32 UNF holes for fixture mounting
  • Low force friction brake


  • Maximum force:
    100 lbF [500 N]
  • Maximum travel, with stops (optional):
    3.75″ [95 mm]
  • Maximum travel, without stops:
    6″ [150 mm]
  • Travel rate:
    3″ [76.2 mm]/lever revolution

Optional Equipment

A wide range of force gauges and gripping fixtures
Digital travel display*
6" [150 mm] travel, 0.0005" [0.01 mm] resolution, SPC output for automated data collection. Requires travel stops kit. For output of travel data to a PC, the following items are required: 09-1066 cable and MRS100A communication adapter.
Note: continuous data output rate is limited to 2 Hz.
Horizontal / wall mounting kit
Set of mounting legs that attach to the test stand column in place of the base.
  Travel stops kit
Set of upper and lower travel stops
Column extension
Select from several extension lengths. Extensions increase clearance between the force gauge and actuator. See Ordering Information table.

Note: Column extensions do not increase travel distance.

Eye end adapters
Allow for quick grip installation and removal, and prevent grip rotation.
Mount to common test frames, load cells, and force gauges.

* Because load cell deflection and system deflection are present and not automatically compensated for, this equipment is recommended for applications requiring at least 0.2 in [5 mm] of travel distance.
