High Capacity Manual Test Stand
The TSF Force Measurement Test Stand is ideal for spring testing, destructive testing, product integrity testing, and other applications requiring up to 1,000 lbF (5 kN) of push or pull force.
The stand features a large side mounted hand wheel requiring minimal user effort and a rigid 3” x 3” column. A removable steel loading surface with threaded holes for fixture and grip mounting adds flexibility for many testing applications, and a solid metal base contains a storage pocket and holes for bench mounting. Available in vertical and horizontal orientations.
- Compatible with all Mark-10 force gauges, accessories and grips
- Loading table with 25 #10-32 UNF holes for fixture mounting
- Smooth hand wheel operation
- Maximum force:
1,000 lbF [5 kN]
- Maximum travel:
4.00″ [102 mm]
- Travel rate:
0.013″ [0.34 mm]/wheel rev

Mark-10 force gauges with data output include a USB cable, which can be connected directly to a PC.
If the digital travel display option is ordered and connection to a PC is desired, the following connection cables are required:
Travel display connection sequence:
|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.
Select from several extension lengths. Extensions increase clearance between the force gauge and mounting plate. 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.
