JF Series Compact Hydraulic Actuator

Lightweight, Compact Jack System

The JF Series Force Simulator was developed with the emphasis on light weight, compact size and ease-of-use as a general-purpose, compact jack for the Servopulser system. Testing systems installed with the Force Simulator can easily perform endurance, fatigue and simulation tests on small structural members and various other structural members, which helps improve the logical design and reliability of products.


  • Lightweight
    Jack (20 KN ±100 mm) weighs 25 kg. The jack's self-weight hardly affects the specimen when a dynamic load is applied.
  • Compact
    The jack is compact, which means a small installation footprint on the specimen.
  • Easy handling
    The lightweight and compact actuator is portable and easy to install. Hydraulic hoses are easy to connect using one-touch couplings.
  • Diverse Mounting Options
    A wide range of optional mounting brackets allows specimens to be mounted in a variety of angles.
  • Testing Systems Can Be Easily Configured
    Testing systems can be easily configured by combining a portable hydraulic unit, 4830 controller and test jig with Force Simulator.
