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)
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.
