Rubber, Plastics, Textiles, Cloth, Paper
Screw flat grips are general-purpose grips used for static tensile testing of a wide range of materials, most commonly, rubbers, plastics, textiles, and paper, and specimens such as plates and wires. Another advantage of these grips is they can be used to test thick specimens, up to 16 mm (0.63 in).
There are two types of manual screw flat grips: standard and stainless steel. Standard models have an operational temperature range from -70 to 250°C (-94 to 482°F), whereas stainless steel models are capable of operating over an extended temperature range of -70 to 320°C (-94 to 608°F).
Single-side file-teeth grip faces come standard on 1 kN (220 lbf) and 5 kN (1,100 lbf) capacity grips, and 50 N (11.0 lbf) capacity grips have flat grip faces. Additional grip face options include waves, rubber-coated, high-strength rubber-coated, grip faces for grab tests, and line-contact grip faces. Grip faces are easily exchanged. See the document on Grip Faces for Manual Screw Flat Grips for further information on grip face options.

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.
