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. 

Scissor Grips

ST68 Scissor Grips

These materials testing grips initially grip through spring tension, and then tighten themselves during the application of force. The larger the scissor grip opening, the more force will be exerted on the sample. These grips are useful if you require wide openings for thicker samples and a quick loading action.


Our range of scissor grips are designed and manufactured here in the UK to the highest standards, so you can use them to test to ASTM, ISO, CEN and DIN standards.
