Hydraulic side action grips are the ideal solution for high-capacity testing. Hydraulic side action grips are used in high force tensile testing applications. They deliver enhanced gripping force capacity, usability, and operator safety compared to other grip approaches. Side acting hydraulic grips maintain a constant clamping force on the specimen that acts perpendicular to the direction of testing and is independent of tensile loading. Compression testing is possible using optional secondary load string adapters.

They can be configured with interchangeable grip jaws in various sizes and surfaces including smooth ground, rubber-coated, and serrated. Special temperature ratings optionally available from -10C to 200C. Hydraulic power packs and hoses are optional accessories.
