Grips and Fixtures for Materials testing

TTS can offer new grips and fixtures to suit any test application and are designed to fit most OEM machines. All our grips and fixtures are manufactured here in the UK to the most exacting specifications.
Our grips are supplied and priced as a pair and include a standard set of jaws, exceptions are fixtures such as bending jigs, friction testing etc where the upper part is completely different from the bottom.  All grips and fixtures come complete and ready to use and are adapted to suit your particular testing machine.  Due to the large quantity of different testing machines in the market we keep our grips as piece parts and assemble to order. 
Our grips are significantly more cost effective than OEM grips and but made to equally high standards. 

Pneumatic Grips

With a range of both single and double action grips available, there is a  pneumatic grip for every flat sample testing need, including plastic, wood, yarn, composites, paper and metals. Choose a single action grip for shear testing with offset samples.

 

For our pneumatic vices and grips, we supply all the pipe work, valves etc. However, we do not supply the connection to the mains supply or mains filtering or regulation. Foot controls are supplied as standard, but hand control is available as an option.

 
 
ST10 300N
£736

This is a vice grip with pneumatic loading applied to one jaw face. The other side is manually adjustable to centre the sample. The 300N load is the pneumatic clamping force at 7 bar supply pressure. The actual load that can be applied to the sample will depend on the coefficient of friction.The standard jaw face is rubber coated. Plain and pyramid cut faces are available.

 
 
ST101 2.5kN
£1,371

This is a single acting vice grip with a comparatively wide opening to accommodate thicker samples. It is supplied fitted with rubber coated jaws but can be supplied with plain or pyramid cut jaws.

It comes complete with a 3-way foot switch and sufficient tubing to connect the foot switch to the air supply and the grips.

 
 
ST83 500N
£812

This is a vice grip with pneumatic loading applied to one jaw face. The other side is manually adjustable to centre the sample. The 500N load is the pneumatic clamping force at 7 bar supply pressure. The tensile load that can be applied to the sample will depend on the coefficient of friction.

 
 
ST102 2.5kN
£1,680

This is a double acting vice grip with a comparatively wide opening to accommodate thicker samples. It is supplied fitted with rubber coated jaws but can be supplied with plain or pyramid cut jaws.

It comes complete with a 3-way foot switch and sufficient tubing to connect the foot switch to the air supply and the grips.

 
 
ST11 2.5kN
£1,884

This is a self centring pneumatic vice grip, both faces are activated by pneumatic pressure. The clamping force between the jaws is 2.5kN at 7 bar.

 
 
ST103 5kN
£1,861

This is a single acting vice grip with a comparatively wide opening to accommodate thicker samples. It is supplied fitted with rubber coated jaws but can be supplied with plain or pyramid cut jaws.

It comes complete with a 3-way foot switch and sufficient tubing to connect the foot switch to the air supply and the grips.

 
 
ST104 5kN
£2,041

This is a double acting vice grip with a comparatively wide opening to accommodate thicker samples. It is supplied fitted with rubber coated jaws but can be supplied with plain or pyramid cut jaws.

It comes complete with a 3-way foot switch and sufficient tubing to connect the foot switch to the air supply and the grips.

 
 
ST42 5kN
£2,552

This grip is single acting, with manual adjustment of the opposing jaw face. The closing force between the jaws is 5kN with a pressure of 7 Bar. The tensile force that can be applied to the sample will depend on its coefficient of friction with the jaw face. Samples up to 10mm thick can be accommodated between the jaws.

 
 
ST93 10kN
£2,456

A general purpose single acting pneumatic grip with manual adjustment of the opposing face. The closing force between the jaws is 10 kN with a pressure of 7 Bar. The tensile force that can be applied will depend on the co-efficient of friction between the jaws and the sample. Samples up to 13mm thick can be accommodated between the jaws.

 
 
ST52 30kN
£4,509

This grip is single acting, with manual adjustment of the opposing jaw face. The closing force between the jaws is 28kN with a pressure of 7 Bar. The tensile force that can be applied to the sample will depend on its coefficient of friction with the jaw face. Samples up to 22mm thick can be accommodated between the jaws.

 
 
ST53 30kN Wide opening
£5,316

This grip is single acting, with manual adjustment of the opposing jaw face. The closing force between the jaws is 28kN with a pressure of 7 Bar. The tensile force that can be applied to the sample will depend on its coefficient of friction with the jaw face. Samples up to 22mm thick can be accommodated between the jaws.

 
 
ST87 500N Yarn
£1,366

Designed for rapid loading and consistent testing of ropes yarns and cords, it can also be used for fine wires that are flexible enough to wrap around the elliptical body. A pressure regulator device is available to allow the clamping pressure of the jaw

 
 
ST6-6
£329

100mm diameter Steel compression platen. Price per pair

 
 
ST85 1kN Yarn
£1,450
Designed for rapid loading and consistent testing of ropes yarns and cords, it can also be used for fine wires that are flexible enough to wrap around the elliptical body.
