MARK-10: A leader in force measurement and torque measurement testing systemsIdentify a MARK-10 force gauge or torque gauge for your force measurement and torque measurement requirements


The ES10 and ES20 manual test stands are compact and economical solutions for compression and tensile testing of small samples. Choose between a lever (ES10) for quick-action testing or a hand wheel (ES20) for more precise testing with greater consistency in testing results. Optional dial and digital indicator kits display up to 1" (25 mm) of displacement. Use these stands with force gauges and grips to create complete and economical testing systems.

* When ordering an ES10 or ES20 test stand with a Series MG force gauge with 20 lbF (100 N) or lower capacity force gauge and most Mark-10 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. MG50 and higher capacity force gauges include a G1039 coupler.
