Scissor-action grip rated to 20 kN fitted with either QC-20 or QC-32 connection.
Locking function allows the grip to remain open when inserting a specimen.
Spring tension provides enough clamping force to prevent the specimen from slipping when initially inserted. The rated tensile force changes according to the opening width. The larger the opening width the stronger the grips tighten the specimen allowing it to be pulled to break.
An extensive collection of interchangeable jaws (sold separately) provide excellent gripping characteristics to ensure that a variety of materials and components can be securely held.
Most commonly used for testing high-ductile plastics and elastomers.
