Hydraulic Grips offer open-front design, side-load dampening.
Controls & Controllers

Hydraulic Grips offer open-front design, side-load dampening.

Designed to enhance gripping performance, usability, and operator safety, hydraulic side-action grips with DuraSync technology are field-serviceable and can be used in high-capacity metals testing. DuraSync technology consists of mechanical synchronizer located outside gripping pocket, which prevents mechanical failure due to contamination. Adjustable clamping force alleviates specimen slippage...
