Imada wheel operated compression testers offer the precise control of a hand wheel test stand. The rack and pinion design of the stand holds the force gauge stationary when the wheel is released. The wheel operated compression tester measures both compression and tension without any conversion and can be equipped with a digital distance meter. Any tester using a digital force gauge can also be connected to a PC for data collection. Force gauges are available in capacities of a few ounces up to 1,100 lbf.
