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. 

Rope & Yarn Grips

Choose the best bollard grips for textile threads and wires, designed to cope with up to 100kN tensile loading (depending on model and the sample's coefficient of friction against the bollard).

 

Our efficient bollard grips are designed to BS EN standards so that the sample can be wrapped around the bollard and held by the tail end. By spreading the load around the bollard and the friction of the sample, this reduces the incidents of samples suffering a jaw break. Some models incorporate pneumatic clamping.

 
 
ST43 1kN
£304

The grip operates on the bollard and clamp principle. The bollard is 20mm in diameter and made from stainless steel. The clamp consists of a pair of friction washers and a thumbscrew.

 
 
ST44 10kN
£610

The rope is wrapped around a bollard, once or twice, depending on it’s diameter and then the tail is clamped in a vice. The bollard diameter is 40mm. The vice will accommodate rope up to 8mm maximum. Friction between the bollard and the rope and the initial tension from the vice take the load applied by the tensile testing machine. 

 
 
ST95 30kN
£992

The rope is wrapped around each bollard, once or twice, depending on it’s diameter and then the tail is clamped in a vice. The bollard diameter is 40mm. The vice will accommodate rope up to 8mm maximum. Friction between the bollards and the rope and the initial tension from the vice take the load applied by the tensile testing machine.

 
 
ST64 50kN
£2,509

A bollard type rope grip with a manual vice for clamping the tail end of the sample. The bollard diameter is 150mm which gives a 10:1 ratio of maximum rope diameter to bollard diameter as prescribed by BS EN 919. The rope is held over one full circumference of the bollard before being clamped.

 
 
ST88 100kN
£2,979

A bollard type rope grip with a manual vice for clamping the tail end of the sample. The bollard diameter is 200mm which gives a 10:1 ratio of maximum rope diameter to bollard diameter as prescribed by BS EN 919. The rope is held over one full circumference of the bollard before being clamped.
