Pneumatic side action grips feature actuating air cylinders that improve productivity and repeatability. Pneumatic side action grips are the common solution for gripping elastic materials and specimen types that include fibers, sheet, thin films, textiles, rigid and elastic plastics, rubber and elastomers, wires, foils, and products, devices and components. These grips produce repeatable gripping forces and help speed up your testing process.

Dual action grips are recommended if specimen centering is important, especially if test samples vary in thickness from test to test. In volume test applications involving limited sample to sample variation, or in applications where the thickness does not vary much, a single acting pneumatic grip may be adequate.

Air compressors, foot switches, grip mounted air-valves and air kits are optional accessories that are available. For applications where jaw changes are a common occurrence, we recommend jaw inserts to speed your testing process. Our quick change jaw insert design allows jaws to be changed in seconds without the use of tools or pins. Standard jaw surfaces include rubber-coated, serrated, smooth-ground, line contact, wave action, diamond grit, and V-jaws.
