EZ-X Series Universal Electromechanical Test Frames
Compact Test Frames, Ideal for a Wide Variety of Evaluation Testing

Shimadzu’s EZ-X series single-column universal test frames provide a convenient solution for low-capacity testing of medical devices, pharmaceuticals, electronics, food, and raw materials. To further support customer requirements, a wide variety of load cells, easy-to-exchange test fixtures, and accessories is available.

EZ-X Series:

  • EZ-SX short-column test frame – 500 N (110 lbf)

  • EZ-LX long-stroke and high-speed test frame – 2 kN (440 lbf)

  • EZ-LX long-stroke test frame – 5 kN (1,100 lbf)

  • Load cell options from 1 N to 5 kN (0.22 lbf to 1,100 lbf)

EZ-X Footprint
Compact and Ergonomic

The EZ-X series’ small footprint is ideal for labs with limited bench space. The open-column design provides easy access to the test frame, making fixture and sample exchange convenient.

Full Line of Test Fixtures

A wide variety of test fixtures, including tensile grips, compression plates, bend fixtures, shear fixtures, and food texture analysis fixtures, is available. In addition, extensometers, deflectometers, and analog signals are seamlessly integrated.

Operation Panel
Adjustable Operation Panel

The operation panel has an adjustable position and angle, and enables tensile, compression, or cycle testing without a computer.

Load Cell
High-Performance Load Cells

The EZ-X series boasts Shimadzu’s standard line of interchangeable load cells with ±0.5% accuracy over a wide range of 1/1 to 1/500 of the maximum capacity, guaranteeing quality performance and versatility.

Emergency Stop Button
Comprehensive Safety Measures

Safety functions include emergency-stop buttons, limit switches, and collision detection, all designed for operator peace of mind.

Trapezium X Universal Testing Software

Common to all Shimadzu universal test frames, Trapezium X universal testing software redefines the user-friendly graphical interface, seamlessly integrating method development, testing, data analysis, and reporting. Visit the Trapezium X page for more information.
