PNEUMATIC CORD AND YARN TENSILE GRIPS
For Testing Fiber, Cord, Yarns, and Fine Braided Wires
Pneumatic cord and yarn grips provide a convenient method for clamping fiber, cord, yarns and fine braided wires to reduce the problem of jaw breaks associated with testing these materials. A specially designed horn with a smooth finish and a contoured surface with a graduated cam allows for easy loading and a stress reduced clamping area on the specimen. The clamping mechanism can be activated either automatically or through a foot switch. This allows hands-free grip operation enabling the specimen to be held with both hands for easy loading. Pneumatic cord and yarn grips provide a selectable clamping force to accommodate different materials and excellent follow-up action which compensates for decay of the holding force due to specimen creep.
