Mark-10 ES10 – ES20 Manual Test Stands

The ES10 and ES20 manual test stands are compact and economical solutions for compression and tensile testing of small samples. Choose between a lever (ES10) for quick-action testing or a hand wheel (ES20) for more precise testing with greater consistency in testing results. Optional dial and digital indicator kits display up to 1″ (25 mm) of displacement. Use these stands with force gauges and grips to create complete and economical testing systems.

Additional Options

The Mark-10 compact and economical test stands are ideal for low force applications with relatively small sample sizes. The ES10 and ES20 produce both tensile and compressive force up to 100 lbF (500 N). Choose between lever operation for quick test or hand wheel operation for better control of motion. Combine these test stands with Mark-10 digital force gauges and gripping fixtures to create complete testing solutions.

When ordering an ES10 or ES20 test stand with a Series MG force gauge with 20 lbF (100 N) or lower capacity force gauge and most Mark-10 grips, the G1039 coupler or any length extension rod is required in order to provide adequate clearance between the load cell shaft and the grip. MG50 and higher capacity force gauges include a G1039 coupler.
