Pneumatic Non-Shift Wedge Grips
- Applicable for testing a wide variety of materials, including metals, plastics, and composites
- Pneumatic action applies a constant clamping force to minimize specimen slippage
- Grips with maximum capacity up to 300 kN (66,000 lbf)
- One-touch chucking by use of a foot valve unit
- Compatible with a comprehensive selection of grip faces for testing rods, wires, materials with high hardness, and composite materials

Plates, Rods, Wires
Pneumatic non-shift wedge grips have an open-front design and use one-touch chucking by foot operation to provide simple specimen mounting. These grips are suitable for tensile testing materials such as plastics and metals.
Grip sets include upper and lower pneumatic non-shift wedge grips and file-teeth grip faces for gripping flat plate specimens. To operate the grips, a foot valve unit is required, and to connect the foot valve unit with an air compressor, a rubber hose is needed. Both are available as accessories.
Pneumatic non-shift wedge grips are operable at air pressures between 0.4 MPa (4 kgf/cm2, 58 psi) and 0.6 MPa (6 kgf/cm2, 87 psi). Additional grip faces for testing rods, wires, high hardness materials, and composite materials can be found in the document on Grip Faces for Manual and Pneumatic Non-shift Wedge Grips.
In certain regions, pneumatic non-shift wedge grip kits, which include upper and lower grips, file-teeth grip faces, a foot valve unit, and a rubber connecting hose, are available. In addition, an air compressor might be available as an accessory. Please contact your local Shimadzu representative for availability.
Additional items needed for operation:
- Foot valve unit
- Rubber connecting hose
- 0.5 MPa (5 kgf/cm2, 73 psi) to 0.99 MPa (10 kgf/cm2, 144 psi) air compressor

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.
