- Universal tensile grips, 750 N (77kg, 150 lbf) capacity.
- Ideal for strips of rubber, plastic and foam. An open-ended design allows easy insertion of samples wider then the grip inserts.
- Grip faces are available with smooth serrated, diamond serrated, line contact or rubber covered surfaces.
Thwing-Albert ’s Mechanical Vise Grips are designed for measuring materials up to 10 kN. They are ideal for general tensile strength testing of paper, plastics, foils, textiles and other sheet materials.
An open-ended design allows easy insertion of samples wider than the grip inserts. The open space above the gripping surface provides convenient access that simplifies sample loading.
Mechanical Vise Grips can be used on all of Thwing-Albert’s tensile testers. Grip faces are available with smooth, serrated, diamond serrated, line contact or rubber covered surfaces. Different widths are available for most of the grip models.
The inserts are positioned by hand and then tightened with a wrench enabling the sample to be placed in the center of the grip to ensure the best alignment.
