The depth of corrugation is graduated to reduce the amount of gripping stress at the front edge of the jaw face. Additional jaw faces are available including rubber faced or grab test jaws. For grab test, specify back fixed jaw as either 50 or 75mm wide and the front moving jaw 25 x 25mm.
The pneumatic tensile grip is used on ST series materials testing machines.
