5 kN Wedge Grips for Metal Specimens
- Specifically designed for testing thin metal plates and metal wires
- Grips have a maximum capacity of 5 kN (1,100 lbf)
- The wedge design enables quick exchange of specimens and applies a self-tightening action during testing
- Available with integrated parallel-grooved or embedded cross file-teeth grip faces
- Includes clamping tension adjustment via a spring mechanism
These easily-operated wedge grips are for tensile testing thin metal plates and metal wires. Although these grips don't benefit from the stationary grip face feature of non-shift wedge grips, they still incorporate a wedge design, where the grip faces press against the wedged frame during testing, applying a self-tightening action to hold the specimen firmly in place.
There are two grip sets for 5 kN (1,100 lbf) wedge grips for metal specimens. Both grip sets include upper and lower grips. The difference between the two grip sets is one includes integrated parallel-groove grip faces whereas the other has embedded cross file-teeth grip faces. The grip faces are available separately, and can be interchanged with relative ease.

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
