Mechanical grips can become cumbersome when an operator has to continually tighten and loosen the grips for each test. Additionally, as grips age, you may experience difficulty in their operation and an increase in maintenance. Replacing your existing mechanical or side acting pneumatic grips (up to 10 kN) with Instron 2712-04x and 2712-05x pneumatic side acting grips will improve your testing in a number of ways.
The new 2712 Series pneumatic grips make it really easy and require no tools or retaining pins; you simply slide to insert, and a ball and socket locates the jaw face correctly, removing the need for any tools when changing the jaw faces.
The 2712 Series pneumatic grips utilize a jaw face shield, adjustable jaw face closing speeds, and a larger throat area to reduce pinch incidents.
The shield and jaw faces have marks to aide specimen loading. The grips also include a specimen stop, aiding in specimen alignment and giving you a consistent and repeatable specimen position, which in turn, is likely to reduce scatter in your results.
