ADVANCED HYDRAULIC WEDGE ACTION GRIPS
For Static and Dynamic Testing of Metals and Composites
Advanced Hydraulic Wedge Action Grips are a versatile grip that can be used in both static and dynamic materials testing applications – up to 500 kN force capacity for dynamic tests, and up to 600 kN for static tests. Ideal for metals and composites testing, the interchangeable grip jaw faces accommodate both flat and round specimens and the grip design maintains a constant gripping force on the test specimen, regardless of the applied test forces. This controlled gripping force is applied by the grips as long as there is an adequate hydraulic pressure supply that is active and connected.
