Compression plates
Bending jigs are used for determining the flexural properties of rigid and semi-rigid materials (glass, ceramics, composites, wood & rigid plastics) which includes:
  • Flexural stress at a given time of test
  • Flexural stress at the conventional deflection
  • Flexural stress at max. load
  • Flexural stress at Rupture
  • Apparent Modulus of Elasticity in Flexure
Flexural (bending) grips for Materials Testing Machines
  • Peeling samples at 90°,180°

  • Suitable for use with the foot & hand controls
Pneumatic grips
  • Vice grips with manual tightening action either buy thumb screw or T-bar
  • Single or dual action, allow for offset sample alignment for shearing testing
  • Ideal for flat samples, rubber, plastic film, plastic dumbbells, paper and cardboard, sheet metal, foils, wood fabrics and composites
Vice grips
  • General tension testing of metals & plastics
  • Grip tightens on the sample as force increases, initial force can be applied by various methods like side lever, capstan action wheel or screw action
  • Faces are interchangeable for different sample types & dimensions
Wedge grips
  • Suitable for a wide range of samples (fibre, yarn, thread, string, rope & strapping tape
  • Sample can be wrapped around the bollard & clamped at one end
  • Ideal for user with an extensometer to calculate true strain in the sample

Thread head grips
  • Grips with a split-C design which allows the user to wrap the sample around a self tightening roller
  • Samples can be manually pre-tensioned before test starts
Webbing & ribbon grips
  • General purpose precision extensometers designed for testing a wide range of materials (metals, plastics, composites & ceramics) operates in tension, compression & cyclic testing modes
  • High frequency operation is permited & eliminating vibration sensitivity
  • Attachment kit to allow one-hand quick mounting to the sample
Contacting & Clip-on
Two types
  • 1st aims at the plastic & rubber industries to provide accurate readings of strain & extension over a large extension range that allows additional parameters such as yield point & break points to be calculated by NEXYGEN software
  • 2nd type is suitable for user with rigid, semi-rigid & ductile materials
Long travel
  • Measure deformation in 3 & 4 point bend tests, compression testing applications
Deflection gauge
  • Suitable for both the measurement of material constants as well as “long travel” applications
  • Mounted on an adjustable frame which is attached to the tensile testing machine and it’s possible to adjust the video extensometer to the optimal position within the chosen work area
  • 8 different lenses for optimal focus are availble
