Plastics, Metals, Lumber, Composites
Plates, Rods, Wires
Manual non-shift wedge grips are versatile grips for tensile testing a wide variety of materials, including metals, plastics, and composites. The open-front design allows easy insertion of specimens and exchange of grip faces. The self-tightening action means samples are held firmly within the grip faces, minimizing slippage during testing.
Each manual non-shift wedge grip set includes upper and lower grips and file-teeth grip faces for flat plate specimens. Standard grip sets are available with maximum capacity between 5 kN (1,100 lbf) and 300 kN (66,000 lbf). In addition, grip sets are available with wide 50 mm (2.0 in) file-teeth grip faces for grips with maximum capacity between 5 kN and 100 kN (22,000 lbf). Grip sets of 250 kN (55,000 lbf) and 300 kN are supplied with 50 mm file-teeth grip faces as standard.
A comprehensive selection of additional grip faces can be found in the document on Grip Faces for Manual and Pneumatic Non-Shift Wedge Grips. Options include grip faces especially designed for rods, wires, materials with high hardness, and composite materials.

The World’s First Testing Machines Equipped with a Voice Operation Device
Given that cellulose nanofibers（CNFs）offer attractive physical characteristics, such as light weight, strength, and hardness, they not only enable materials with advanced functionality, but are expected to be used as a reinforcing material that can reduce the weight of composite materials.
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.
