Chuck Style

These universal drill-type chuck grips can be used to hold round, hex or triangular specimens. The standard sets are available in both a keyless and keyed style that can hold a range of specimen sizes. 

Keyless operation lets you rapidly grip and release specimens. A comfortable, sure-grip sleeve allows you to hand-tighten the chucks. 

Keyed operation provides fast, easy tightening as well as quick, nonstick release.

Principle Of Operation

The Chuck Style grips are threaded into or bolted to the output shaft and/or torque cell of MT series frames. 

The chuck grips spin closed to clamp specimens during torsion testing. The jaws of these grips extend well beyond the chuck nose to accept a broad range of wires, cables, and cylindrical specimens. Both keyed and keyless chucks are available for gripping a variety of specimen diameters and include adapters for mounting to an MT series frame.
