  • DUAL GRADUATIONS
  • PEAK FORCE HOLD
  • ACCURACY: ± 1%
 

The unique FDK/FDN is a low cost dial push-pull force gage designed for routine hand-held force testing. It offers basic features - peak force hold, dual lbf/kgf/N graduations and mounting holes - for tension and compression testing to 60 lbf/30 kgf/300 N.

The FDK / FDN features sixteen capacities with dual graduations in pound/gram, ounce/gram or Newton/gram models. Optional stainless steel handle provides stability and comfort for higher pull force testing and NIST Calibration Certificate is available.

For over 30 years, the Force Dial has served virtually all sectors of industrial force measurement, as well as fruit ripeness, therapeutic pain and ergonomic testing. The simplicity, low cost and compact portability of the FDK/FDN make it possible.
