Product Lineup

Sampling test force data at 1 MHz
Saves up to 12,000 data points at 1 MHz.

Capable of detecting fractures reliably. Fracture is detected with a load amplifier (or strain gauge), and the trigger signal is transferred to the high-speed video camera. Breakage of the material is precisely observed by high-speed video recording with up to 10 million frames per second. Displacement measurement & in-plane strain measurement through DIC analysis.

The EMT Servopulser is a dynamic testing machine that operates exclusively on electric power. Consequently, since it requires no hydraulic oil, it is much cleaner system than conventional hydraulic fatigue testing machine. With closed loop (servo) control, it allows stable loading over a wide range of test forces and displacements (strain) for dynamic or static testing. With many fields seeking strength testing for structural design, material selection, and new material development applications to improve product development efficiency and product reliability , the EMT Series is ideal for endurance and fatigue testing at small test force levels(1kN) and long stroke length (±30mm/±50mm in rubber ,plastics, and other industries.

Electromagnetic Force Fatigue/Endurance Testing System

  • Capable of sine wave cycle testing at speeds up to 2 m/s.
  • Offers stroke lengths up to ±50 mm.
  • Allows ±20 µm displacement amplitude at 200 Hz frequencies.
  • NJ-Servo with special system for shock absorber evaluation

Maximum load 10 kN, ±150 mm stroke, when operated consecutively for seven days

Shimadzu announces the release of the NJ-SERVO electric motor-driven actuator. Designed for endurance testing of automobile parts and other driving parts, the highly versatile NJ-SERVO conserves electric power since it does not require a hydraulic power source. For more details, visit

Shimadzu develops the next AUTOGRAPH AG-X with high performance and easy operation.

  • High reliability and accuracyare basic requirements⇒Highest performance in the world
    • High accuracy force measurement with wide range 0.5% of reading up to 1/1000 of load cell capacity(one range)(high accuracy type) with 24-bits A/D and noise-reduction technologies
    • Accurate capture of the data for specimen breakage or rapid phenomenon 5000 data/sec high-speed data acquisition by FPGA technology high-speed communication between AG and PC by USB.
    • high driving resolution 0.025μm/pulse(1,000,000 pulse/sec)
  • from “marvelous” to “convenient”⇒Pursuit of easy operation
  • The important factor  is “service” ⇒Expansion of service function
  • AG-10kNX+USF-2000 for Gigacycle fatigue testing - Ultrasonic Fatigue Testing system with mean stress loading mechanism

Actual components are rarely used under condition in which the mean stress is zero. Despite it, the USF-2000A, a standard ultrasonic fatigue testing system, can only perform testing under zero mean stress conditions.

Using an ultrasonic fatigue testing system equipped with a means stress loading mechanism, Gigacycle fatigue tests can be performed with mean tensile and compression stress loading.

  •  HPV (Ultra High Speed Video Camera)

Many high-speed phenomena occur in the field of automobiles. These include the observations and analysis of the fuel injection process to assist the development of low-fuel-consumption engines. The HPV-X2 can take 256 consecutive images at up to 10 million frames per second at up to 100-kpixel resolution to meet the demands for observing high-speed phenomena, such as fuel injection.

Particle size distribution is a characteristic physical property of powders, and one of the important physical properties that determine the behavior and properties of powders.
The SALD-2300 is the new standard instrument in the SALD series, and provides a variety of functions, options, and analysis applications to accommodate measurement needs in a wide range of fields including pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, foods, drinks, pigments, paints, ceramics, and electronic materials.

  • Wide conditions of particle concentration range from 0.1ppm to 200,000ppm (20%.)
  • Continuous measurement function at minimum 1 second  intervals
  • Wide measurement range from 17nm to 2500 mm

The AIM-9000 is more than just an infrared microscope; it is an Automatic Failure Analysis System with a unique concept allowing complete automation of all necessary steps involved in Failure Analysis and micro sample evaluation; observation, definition of measurement spots, measurement and identification. The AIM-9000 is compatible with both Shimadzu's IRAffinity-1S and IRTracer-100 FTIR Spectrophotometers. Certainly in combination with the IRTRacer-100, the AIM-9000 is an extremely powerful platform offering the highest specifications in the market.

The Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometer EDX-7000/8000 measures the energy (keV) and intensity of the generated fluorescent X-rays to determine the type and content of the elements comprising a sample. It is applied for non-destructive elemental analysis of solid, powder, and liquid samples. It is widely used by electronics and automobile manufacturers around the world.

Shimadzu, one of the world leaders in analytical instrumentation, has released the industry's first EDX-FTIR contaminant finder/material inspector. The EDXIR-Analysis software enables integration and analysis of data acquired from both an Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometer (EDX) and a Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrophotometer (FTIR).

VOC Measurement & Odor Analysis Inside Automobiles/Physical Properties Evaluation and Structural Analysis of Polymer Materials for Interiors. Thermal desorption (a method where the target component in the gas phase is absorbed to a sampling tube packed with absorbent, and then introduced to a GC-MS by thermal desorption) and Headspace automatic sampling methodology  (this procedure uses GC analysis with HS-20) are used, and VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) inside automobiles and gas emissions from parts and materials can be measured.

Application Note "Analysis of VOC and FOG emissions from moulded components for automobiles according to VDA 278 with"
Application Note "VDA 277: Analysis of Volatile Contaminants from Polymers".

Toward Next-Generation Optical Brain-Function Imaging.
Just how the human brain functions remains one of the greatest unsolved puzzles. To solve this mystery, brain-function imaging for visualization of brain functions has developed rapidly in recent years. In particular, in vivo optical imaging by functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) has attracted attention as a technique that supports next-generation brain science. Utilizing its leading-edge science and technology, Shimadzu has developed the LABNIRS/LIGHTNIRS, thereby contributing to the still growing field of brain science.
