Mark-10 Force and Tension Measurement Products for Spring Testing

Spring testing is done to ensure the compression and tension on vital components is set at the proper level to ensure the component—whether in an automobile or a medical device—is functioning properly. Spring testing may be done during the manufacturing process, at an incoming inspection, or even as part of an overall quality check during the product’s final assembly.

1. Test stand - produces the force necessary for the test. All Mark-10 force test stands produce both tensile and compressive force.

2. Force gauge - measures the force exerted on the spring. All Mark-10 force gauges measure both tensile and compressive force

3. Grips and fixtures - compression plates, hooks, and other grips are available. All Mark-10 gauges and test stands have fixing threads to allow for alternative fixture mounting.
