Hydraulic Non-Shift Wedge Grips
- Applicable for testing a wide variety of materials, including metals, plastics, lumber, and composites
- Grips with maximum capacity up to 250 kN (55,000 lbf)
- To minimize specimen slippage, a constant clamping force is applied by hydraulic action
- Grip operator switch box enables one-touch chucking of specimens
- Compatible with a comprehensive selection of grip faces for testing rods, wires, materials with high hardness, and composite materials
Plastics, Metals, Lumber, Composites
Plates, Rods, Wires
Hydraulic non-shift wedge grips combine the benefits of a strong, consistent clamping force with an open-front, wedge design and are ideal for tensile testing plastics, metals, lumber, and composites.
Grip kits include upper and lower grips, file-teeth grip faces for flat specimens, an initial load prevention unit, and a hydraulic unit. The hydraulic unit comes with a grip operator switch box, uses an AC 3-phase 200 V, 2.5 W power source, has a maximum pressure of 21 MPa (214 kg/cm2, 3,046 psi), and requires cooling water, a supply of 10 L/min.
The initial test force prevention unit removes the initial force as it is created during clamping of the specimen. It is necessary for hydraulic non-shift wedge grips because the clamping force is strong.
When ordering, grip kits should be matched to both the maximum capacity of the universal tester and the maximum capacity of the grips.
Additional grip faces, such as for rods, wires, materials with high hardness, and composite materials, can be found in the document on Grip Faces for Hydraulic Non-Shift Wedge Grips.

Latest issue of Shimadzu Journal, featuring Materials Science, has come out.
This issue focuses on Materials Science particularly on lithium-ion batteries (LiBs). It starts with two customer interviews in which users discuss their relationship with Shimadzu.
Hydrogen Energy Analysis Solutions for Quality Control of Hydrogen
Impurities in hydrogen production affect subsequent industrial processes. Strict purity standards have been defined for hydrogen used in fuel cells (ISO 14687-2019). This is because if hydrogen contains carbon monoxide, sulfur components, etc., the catalyst of the fuel cell will be damaged. The hydrogen fuel standard for FCVs (ISO 14687 TypeII GradeD) defines many items to be controlled, and Shimadzu analytical instruments can play a role in analyzing these items.
Shimadzu at IIW 2022
Shimadzu is honored to join the IIW 2022 International Conference on Welding and Joining (IIW 2022) as a Platinum Sponsor. Visit our booth and attend our technical program at IIW 2022!
Shimadzu has released the MIV-X Ultrasonic Optical Flaw Detector
The MIV-X visualizes and digitizes flaws (peeling, cracks, and voids) in parts and multi-materials in aircraft, automobiles, and electrical and electronic equipment using our proprietary ultrasonic optical flaw detection technology, which acquires an image of the propagation of ultrasonic on the surface of an object.
Shimadzu has released TRAPEZIUM SATELLITE Testing Machine Remote Monitoring System
Shimadzu announces the release of TRAPEZIUM SATELLITE, a remote monitoring system for testing machines. This system enables the remote assessment of test conditions by checking instrument images using a USB camera and operating status data obtained from the fatigue testing machine.
