5 kN Grips for Fine Wire


  • Suitable for metal and textile rope, string and wire testing
  • Applicable specimen diameter of 3 mm (0.12 in) or less
  • Maximum capacity of 5 kN (1,100 lbf)

Relevant Materials:
Metals, Textiles

Relevant Specimens:
Ropes, Strings, Wires


These grips offer a suitable method for tensile testing soft metal wires, ropes, and strings, all with a diameter of 3 mm (0.12 in) or less. The upper and lower grips include an articulated joint to maintain alignment of the specimen with the testing axis during testing.

It is difficult to define the grip-to-grip gauge length for these 5 kN grips for fine wire. Therefore, the use of an extensometer is strongly advised.
