Fixed compression plates, or platens as they are otherwise known, are versatile testing accessories, applicable to compression and cycle testing a diverse range of materials and finished products. Hardened faces, surface hardness of 60 on the Rockwell HRC scale, ensure minimal wear, preserving surface smoothness.
These general-purpose fixed compression plates are available in diameters of 50 mm (2.0 in), 100 mm (3.9 in), and 200 mm (7.9 in). Lower compression plates fit into the table of the universal tester. Upper 50 mm and 100 mm compression plates attach directly to compression and bending loading jigs.
For 200 mm upper compression plates, an additional screw joint is required. This joint attaches the plate to compression and bending loading jigs and should be ordered to match the capacity of the compression and bending loading jig.
Fixed compression plate kits, which, in addition to upper and lower compression plates, include a compression and bending loading jig, are available in certain regions. Please contact your local Shimadzu representative for information about fixed compression plate kits.

The World’s First Testing Machines Equipped with a Voice Operation Device
Given that cellulose nanofibers（CNFs）offer attractive physical characteristics, such as light weight, strength, and hardness, they not only enable materials with advanced functionality, but are expected to be used as a reinforcing material that can reduce the weight of composite materials.
Latest issue of Shimadzu Journal, featuring Materials Science, has come out.
This issue focuses on Materials Science particularly on lithium-ion batteries (LiBs). It starts with two customer interviews in which users discuss their relationship with Shimadzu.
Hydrogen Energy Analysis Solutions for Quality Control of Hydrogen
Impurities in hydrogen production affect subsequent industrial processes. Strict purity standards have been defined for hydrogen used in fuel cells (ISO 14687-2019). This is because if hydrogen contains carbon monoxide, sulfur components, etc., the catalyst of the fuel cell will be damaged. The hydrogen fuel standard for FCVs (ISO 14687 TypeII GradeD) defines many items to be controlled, and Shimadzu analytical instruments can play a role in analyzing these items.
Shimadzu at IIW 2022
Shimadzu is honored to join the IIW 2022 International Conference on Welding and Joining (IIW 2022) as a Platinum Sponsor. Visit our booth and attend our technical program at IIW 2022!
Shimadzu has released the MIV-X Ultrasonic Optical Flaw Detector
The MIV-X visualizes and digitizes flaws (peeling, cracks, and voids) in parts and multi-materials in aircraft, automobiles, and electrical and electronic equipment using our proprietary ultrasonic optical flaw detection technology, which acquires an image of the propagation of ultrasonic on the surface of an object.
