Mark-10 Spring Testers consist of the following:
1. Test stand - produces the force necessary for the test. All Mark-10 force test stands produce both tensile and compressive force.
2. Force gauge - measures the force exerted on the spring. All Mark-10 force gauges measure both tensile and compressive force
3. Grips and fixtures - compression plates, hooks, and other grips are available. All Mark-10 gauges and test stands have fixing threads to allow for alternative fixture mounting.
