Where can the CS series force tester be designed to be used?
The tester of the CS series is a simple and easy to use instrument for testing the strength of different materials, especially in a production environment.

The tester has been designed so that an operator can simply perform a test in a single-key operation. The operator only has to load the sample and press a button to execute a test. At the end of the test, the data is automatically output from the tester.

The tester is designed for use at the entry level and can be used for the basic use of online production or for product research and development. The “ease of use” of the user interface makes this tester ideal for an operator to use. The control of the machine is done through a simple touch interface that guides users along the way.

In addition, it can be considered as a universal tester (Universal Testing Machine). Depending on which adapters you use, it is possible to test all types of materials, from plastics to metal, rubber and paper. Basically any material that requires quality control and verification during its manufacture.

The tester is an autonomous instrument, which does not need a PC next to it, which has a very small footprint. This makes it very easy to fit together with existing technologies in a production line without having to redesign your process.

For which manufacturing industries is the CS Series designed?
The CS series is popular in a wide range of manufacturing industries.

The tester is being used in high technology sectors such as aerospace, automotive and medical and also in traditional areas such as construction and paper manufacturing.

Every time a client needs to test a material and do not need to use sophisticated calculations this is the solution to go plug-and-play.

What different types of tests can the CS series force tester perform?
It is an extremely versatile machine that can perform a wide range of tests. These include tensile tests, push tests, spring tests, shear tests … the list goes on! The range of adapters for different tests and materials is almost endless.

Different types of tests are important for different industries. The power of the tester of the CS series is that it is strong throughout the board, which means that it is ideal for any industry.

How are the data recorded by the CS Series recorded and processed for its end users?
The CS series has internal memory that allows automatic recording of statistical data, such as maximum force, standard deviation, averaging values ​​as the test is performed. In addition, it also has multiple outputs for exporting data to central computer systems. Many large companies now use DAQs (data acquisition systems) for their quality control purposes. By integrating the CS Series into your DAQ network, companies can remotely collect data from the production site in real time.

The CS Series also has other network capabilities, including Ethernet, for a direct connection to the Internet, and USB ports to transfer data to a PC.

Does the CS series allow the automatic calculation of the key parameters of the material?
Yes, definitely. The CS as a force tester provides calculations on the spring ratio and also important statistics such as standard deviation, averaging, rupture test and more.

The CS series is able to calculate many basic but important force parameters.

What different types of samples can the CS series force tester process?
The CS Series can test any type of material imaginable. From plastic and rubber to all the different metals and alloys used in traditional manufacturing.

You can also try textiles and papers, as well as electrical switches and mechanical assemblies. Such as the test of the amount of force that is required to press on a keyboard. It really is a universal machine.

With different capacity frameworks; 225Lb of force and 1100Lb of force, the CS series offers tests for a wide spectrum of materials. Small cycle tests are also possible, or the tests can be controlled according to different strength or positioning parameters. This is useful for testing all kinds of things, from contact lenses to cables and switches.

Is the CS series force tester also suitable for use in R & D departments?
Yes it is. The CS Series has been designed for use in production environments and R & D departments.

The tester can also be used for receiving incoming parts, quality inspections where, for example, a company is receiving pieces of u
