Torsion grips are designed to transmit torsional forces to the specimen and usually employ either a collet or socket-style gripping arrangement. Whereas, axial torsional grips are used in conjunction with systems able to apply both torsional and axial loads to a specimen simultaneously.
Axial-Torsion Wedge Grips
These grips utilize a wedge-action gripping technique making them suitable for flat specimens as well as cylindrical.
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.
Two standard sets of Collet Style grips are available: a small collet grip set for smaller specimens and a large collet grip set for larger specimens. Both sets are double angle style.
These socket style adapters allow the connection of any 0.5 inch drive socket or accessory directly to the torque cell and/or output shaft on the MT series frames.
