EZ-X SeriesThe need for physical property testing has increased in wide range of applications. To address this demand, Shimadzu Scientific Instruments Inc. has launched the EZ Test EZ-X Series of compact tabletop testers.

The EZ-X Series consists of three different testers, which can be configured into 29 different models designed to meet the small-capacity testing requirements of many industries.

The EZ-SX is a compact model suitable for the evaluation of food texture, pharmaceuticals and their packaging, and electrical/electronic parts. The capacity of the load cell ranges from 1 N to 500 N, and the maximum stroke is 500 mm. Its test speed range is 0.001 to 1,000 mm/min.

The EZ-LX is a long-stroke model for performing tensile, compression, or bending tests on plastics, tapes, rubber, and other samples. The maximum stroke is 920 mm, and the load cell capacity ranges from 1 N to 5 kN. Its test speed ranges from 0.001 to 1,000 mm/min.

The EZ-LX (HS) is a high-speed, long-stroke model. Its 3,000 mm/min return speed reduces the wait between tests to improve productivity. The capacity of the load cell is 1 N to 2 kN, and the maximum stroke is 920 mm. It features a test speed range of 0.001 to 2,000 mm/min.

All EX-X Series instruments provide +/- 0.5% accuracy with a range from 1/500 to 1/1 of load capacity. The tests also allow high-speed data sampling of 1,000 data/sec, which enables peak data to be detected more accurately in tests.
