Self-tightening wedge grips with spring-loaded wedges to provide the initial gripping and allow rapid loading of the sample. Gripping wedges are supplied with serrated jaw faces for gripping flat samples. Optional V profile wedges are available for gripping round sections up to 15mm (6/10in).
The wedge style tensile grip is used on ST series materials testing machines.
