Hydraulic Side Action Grips

Hydraulic side action grips are an excellent solution for gripping high strength materials such as composites, metals and components. They produce repeatable gripping forces and speed up the test operation. Hydraulic grips produce high clamp forces and are helpful in high volume tests that involve repetitive opening and closing of jaws. These grips produce an adjustable constant clamp force on the specimen and are available in a single or dual acting clamp action. Having an adjustable clamp load helps minimize sample slippage and jaw breaks. Test repeatability is improved when all samples are tested under constant clamping conditions. 

The dual-acting design ensures that jaw positions adjust to accommodate different specimen thicknesses, ensuring that the line of tensile force remains concentric with the grip body. They can also be configured with a selection of interchangeable grip jaws in various sizes and surfaces including smooth ground, rubber-coated, and serrated.

Dual action grips are recommended if specimen centering is important, and especially so, if test samples vary in thickness from test to test. In repetitive test applications involving small changes in sample thickness, a single action hydraulic grip may be adequate. 

All grips and fixtures fit any brand of test machine with an optional test machine adapter.
