Tensile wedge grips

Monday, 10 August, 2009 | Supplied by: IDM Instruments



IDM Instruments has available heavy-duty, self-tightening wedge grips for tensile applications. With a capacity of 5.3 kN, the grips are suitable for a range of tensile testing requirements, when used together with a motorised test stand.

The serrated steel jaws are easily opened with an ergonomic spring-loaded knob and rack and pinion-type mechanism. The wedge grip has a through slot that is suitable for samples of unlimited width.

The jaws ride on rollers instead of sliding along the surface of the housing, as with conventional wedge grips. This design prevents jamming and improves gripping characteristics.

The grip can be used with a test stand and force gauge to create a complete testing system.
