We developed the AGX-V series of precision universal testing machines according to the three concepts of Meeting advanced test requirements, Realizing safe and secure tests and Pursuing ease of operation. The measurement and control performance, which are the basic metrics for testing machines, have been greatly improved, and new functions have been added. These include up to 20 channels of sensor input, an intelligent crosshead, multi joint connectors and a USB cam-era function. In addition, tester is equipped with many industry firsts, such as ensuring the alignment of the load frame, sound-designed operation sounds, and voice synthesis to communicate the operation status.
