SELF-TIGHTENING ECCENTRIC ROLLER TENSILE GRIPS

For Tensile Testing Thin Sheets, Films, Flexible Plastics, Rubber, and Elastomers



2713 Series Self Tightening Thin Film Grips



The self-tightening grips are primarily designed for the precision testing of elastomeric and other flexible materials exhibiting a large reduction in cross-section area under load. They provide excellent testing accuracy, positive non-slip gripping action and are quick and simple to use. The upper grip is counter balanced so that the specimen can be aligned with the load cell to eliminate non-axial forces.

Principle of Operation

The self tightening grip uses an eccentric roller type clamping action. A single fast action lever reduces the time required to load specimens. Specimen insertion is extremely easy and the spring pressures of the roller bracket gives a positive non-slip action gripping force. This is sufficient to hold the material until a load is applied. The follow up action of the roller while under test prevents the specimen from slipping out of the grip as the load increases.

Application Range

  • Type of loading: tensile, static, and tension cyclic tests - not suitable for high cycle dynamic fatigue tests
  • Specimen materials: thin sheets, films, flexible plastic and elastomers
  • Specimen shapes: flat specimen with or without shoulder tab ends
  • Force capacity options:
