LTCM-100 Motorized Test Stand
For use with DF Series Gauges


The LTCM-100 is a low-cost Test Stand for use with DFX2, DFE2 and DFS2 Series Force Gauges.  The maximum force is 110 lbs (500N).

The speed is selected by a rotary knob and the LED Display confirms the set speed, up to 20 inches per minute. 

Two knobs are adjusted on a rod to make limits of travel.  The machine will run from one limit (upper or lower) until it contacts the opposite limit, where the machine will stop.  The switch is then activated in the opposite direction until the machine returns to the original limit.  This simple operation is effective for making tensile "break tests" or compressive "rupture tests".

The travel limit is 15.5" or 394mm.

A splinter shield and foot switch are available as non-standard accessories.

LTCM-500 Motorized Test Stand
For use with DF Series Gauges


The LTCM-500 is a low-cost Test Stand for use with DFX2, DFE2 and DFS2 Series Force Gauges.  The maximum force is 550 lbs. (2.5 KN).  This higher capacity LTCM has 29 inches of travel (750 mm), 4 more inches than the LTCM-100.

The speed is selected by a rotary knob and the LED Display confirms the set speed, up to 20 inches per minute. 

Two knobs are adjusted on a rod to make limits of travel.  The machine will run from one limit (upper or lower) until it contacts the opposite limit, where the machine will stop.  The switch is then activated in the opposite direction until the machine returns to the original limit.  This simple operation is effective for making tensile "break tests" or compressive "rupture tests".

MT150 & MT500 Manual Test Stands
For use with DF Series Gauges


Our manual test stands are easy-to-use solutions for force measurement applications. The manual test stands can be used with the Chatillon force gauges. 

Please note: This option should not be used where variation of test speed may present a problem.  See also Force Test Software.  The motorized versions, LTCM-100 and LTCM-500 are recommended for constant rate extension applications with force gauges.  Please contact our office to learn more about testing of materials and components of all kinds.

The Chatillon MT Series manual test stand is a flexible, easy-to-use solution for force measurement. It comes in two versions: the MT150 with a 150 lbf (660N) capacity and the MT500 with a 500 lbf (2.5 kN) capacity.

The 150 mm (6 inch) throat makes the MT Series excellent for testing large specimens, and the removable plate is designed to accommodate metric as well as imperial threaded fixtures.


The MT Series manual test stands are often used with the DFX II force gauge to check the force necessary to depress a button, or with the LG mechanical gauge to perform low range pull tests at the end of a production line where caps are placed on spray bottles. They are also used to test the force necessary to fold a cardboard container into proper shape.

The MT Series Stands are available with
Hand Wheel or Lever Actuators
