Mechanical Wedge Action Grips

Wedge Action Vice Grips are ideal for tensile strength testing of rigid plastics and composites of flat or round samples. The jaw faces are spring loaded for effortless opening and closing of the grip.

Wedge grips are a good solution for material with high tensile strength as they are designed to apply increasing clamping force when the sample is stressed. Wedge grips are typically used for metals, rigid plastics and composites and can be configured with Vee jaws to accommodate cylindrical specimens such as wire and rods.
