Grips for Tensile tester
Gibitre produces a wide range of clamps for tests on standard specimens or manufactured articles. In the list below you can find frequently required grips. Many other models are available on demand.



Available Grips  
The list of grips shown on this page is not exhaustive.
Numerous clamp models have been produced for specific applications.
For specific needs about non-standard test procedures, please contact us.

Mounting the grips on the instrument  
All clamps are applied to the Tensor-Check tensile tester using the standard Gibitre fastener.
The clamp can be replaced in a few seconds by inserting the clamp shank into the housing seat and closing the fixing handwheel.
The fastening device blocks the clamp avoiding play or movement both when a force is applied in tension or in compression. This feature makes the device optimal even for complex test cycles requiring the alternating application of tensile and compression forces.


Characteristics of Pneumatic Grips  
The pneumatic clamps produced by Gibitre allow to adjust the closing pressure to adapt it to the type of product to be tested. The two pressure gauges on the front panel of the instrument allow checking the applied pressure.
The connection of the clamp to the compressed air is carried out in a few seconds using the quick connectors.
Opening the clamp when the specimen is broken can be done automatically to speed up the preparation of the next test.
