Made in USA
Click images to enlarge.
The FTS-MG is a complete Force Test System designed for compression and tensile testing of small samples. It precisely measures push pull forces as low as 0.002 lb with an accuracy of ± 0.5% full scale ±1 digit. The precision hand wheel allows fine control with greater consistency in testing results. An optional dial indicator kit displays up to 1" of displacement.

The FTS-MG consists of the MG Digital Force Gauge and ES20 Manual Hand-Wheel Test Stand.

* When ordering a FTS-MG test system and most 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. Other gauge series do not require a coupler or extension rod.
