Self Tightening Wedge Grips
March 5, 2009
Mark-10 introduces their new model G1061 wedge grip, designed for a range of tensile testing applications up to 1,200 lb (5.3 kN). Typical applications include the testing of plastics, metals, packaging materials, medical devices, and more.
Serrated, hardened stainless steel jaws are easily opened with an ergonomic spring loaded knob and rack and pinion type mechanism. The jaws ride on rollers instead of sliding along the surface of the housing, as with conventional wedge grips. This unique design prevents jamming and improves gripping characteristics. The jaws are 0.75" (19 mm) wide, and the open housing design permits the testing of samples of any width. Maximum sample thickness is 0.25" (6 mm), making this versatile grip useful for a wide range of requirements.
The grip is designed to mount to virtually any force gauge, test stand, or material tester.
