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. 

Wedge Grips

A superb range of precision mechanical wedge grips for tension / tensile testing of all types of metals and plastics. Our range of wedge grips includes spring loaded, and capstan wedge grips, so you can exert as much or as little initial pressure on the sample as required.

 

All models feature interchangeable faces for flat and round samples and we offer a range of jaw finishes including pyramid cut, straight cut and synthetic diamond coated.
