Model TST / TSTH

Manual Torque Test Stand

The TST Torque Measurement Test Stand is ideal for a wide variety of torque testing applications up to 100 lbFin, including closure torque testing, fastener torque testing, and more. Smooth hand wheel operation ensures ease of use and a lever-operated slider with travel stops makes engaging and disengaging samples quick and efficient. The stand includes a torque loading plate with tapped holes for grip and custom fixture mounting and a resetable angle indicator. The TST’s versatile modular design allows it to be configured for a variety of torque sensors and gripping fixtures. Available in vertical and horizontal orientations.

Optional Equipment

Series R50 universal torque sensors
Mount directly to the stand. 6 capacities are available, from 10 ozFin to 100 lbFin (7 to 1,150 Ncm)
Force/torque indicators
Display the torque value measured by the R50 torque sensor. Basic and advanced models are available. More basic Series TT03 integrated torque gauges can also be used.
Digital angle indicator
Displays cw or ccw angle in 0.1° resolution for approximately 278 rotations, resettable with “zero” button. Accurate to ±0.7°. Includes backlight. Three sets of mounting holes allow the indicator to be mounted perpendicular to, or parallel to the test stand column. It can also be repositioned along the column. Rugged aluminum housing.
Horizontal / wall mounting kit
Pair of mounting legs for adapting the test stand to a bench, instead of the base.
Axial compensator
Allows for axial movement in threaded fasteners, bottle caps, and similar torque testing applications.
Column extension
Select from several extension lengths. Extensions increase clearance between the torque sensor and torque mounting plate. See Ordering Information table.

Note: Column extensions do not increase travel distance.
