Gripping a sample correctly during testing is fundamental to achieving repeatability between tests. The sample must be held firmly enough not to slip, but not too firmly so as to distort it and thus introduce localised changes in sample performance when under load. 

Appropriate fixtures combine:

  • characteristics for load or torque
  • size capacity
  • the surface of the grip faces
  • the method of tightening
  • adjustment for alignment
  • interchangeability.

International test standards and industry methods often specify the method of gripping. Mecmesin can provide a full range of approved grips and fixtures for use with all our systems and instruments. 

Our accessories catalogue includes load and torque cells and sensors, cables and peripherals, grips and cradles: everything you require for a complete testing solution.


Custom fixture design service

When testing parts or components with an awkward shape or surface finish it may not be possible to use standard grips therefore custom grips are often required. We have an expert in-house design and manufacturing team for these specific needs utilising our CNC machining and 3D printer facilities. 

Custom grips typically include 'vacuum fixtures' for holding flexible packaging, 'mandrels' to secure a specific design of bottle cap,  'jigs' for bending awkward or large items, 'fixtures' for torsion springs, 'safety guards' ...... and many more.
