SCREW SIDE ACTION TENSILE GRIPS
For Tensile Testing on a Wide Range of Materials and Specimen Types
Screw action grips provide a very simple and efficient method for holding test specimens in a wide range of applications. The dual-acting design means that jaw faces can be adjusted to accommodate different specimen thicknesses, this ensures that the line of tensile force remains concentric with the grip body. They can be equipped with a selection of interchangeable grip jaw faces in various sizes and choice of surfaces including smooth ground, rubber-coated, and serrated.

Advanced Screw Side Action Grips
Quick Change Jaw Faces
The quick change jaw face design allows all jaw faces to be changed single-handedly in seconds without the use of tools or pins.
Designed to Ease Alignment
Carriages with engraved scales ease alignment of specimens to the axis of testing. Self-aligning jaw faces compensate for specimen irregularities. Optional specimen alignment devices increases repeatability by helping operators load the specimen in the center of the grips.
Wide opening suitable for a wide range of specimen thicknesses and unique components. Large space between the jaw faces and the grip body eases specimen insertion.
Wide Range of Jaw Faces
Available in rubber-coated, serrated, smooth-ground, brake-lining (HFC), line-contact, wave-profile, and vee-serrated.
