Type 1 and Type 2 Pantograph Grips
- Ideal for testing rubber, textiles, and soft plastics
- Type 1 and type 2 models with maximum capacity of 1 kN (220 lbf) and 5 kN (1,100 lbf)
- Quick clamping mechanism with a self-tightening action
- Fitted with parallel-grooved grip faces for securing soft specimens
Rubber, Soft Plastics, Textiles
Pantograph grips use a simple spring design to hold and apply pressure to specimens during tensile testing. These grips are mainly used for tensile testing plate specimens of rubber, textiles, or soft plastics.
There are two types of pantograph grips: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 pantograph grips suit wider, thinner samples, whereas type 2 pantograph grips are better for narrower and thicker samples. Both grip types are fitted with parallel-grooved grip faces to enhance soft specimen clamping.

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.
