AUTOGRAPH AGX-V Series / Precision Universal Testing Machine

Discipline: Product

A material testing machine that evaluates the mechanical properties of steel and plastic.
Previous machines were difficult to operate and had safety issues. To solve them, this model offers a voice support function and intuitive touch panel UI; a new, one-touch safety switch to prevent operation errors; and a safety cover to protect users from testing sample debris. A carefully developed design language that includes exterior colors, materials, and forms, was applied across all models to create a feeling of robustness appropriate to this category within testing machines and convey a sense of originality that is visible at a glance.
