MFD Series Dual Scale Mechanical Force
Gauges with Peak Force Analysis

So simple anyone can use, the economical MFD mechanical
force gauges with dual kg/lb scales are excellent for push/pull
force testing in manufacturing, material testing, maintenance and
inspection applications. The peak force operation mode features
an easy push-button reset, especially helpful for repetitive testing
in an assembly line or in quality control. The large dial indicator
allows viewing of force changes as they occur. This large dial re-
duces the chance for parallax errors when taking readings. The
MFD was ergonomically designed for handheld use, but may also
be used with the optional handle-great for loads over 15 pounds
(6.8 kg). Due to its mechanical design, response time is immedi-
ate. Calibration is achieved by a set of precisely matched springs
which are overload protected. All standard Series MFD gauges
include a protective carrying case, calibration certificate, plus at-
tachment adapters.
