50 kN Capstan Grips for Rope
- Grips especially designed for testing rope
- A self-tightening action is applied during testing because of split drum and capstan
- Maximum capacity of 50 kN (11,000 lbf)
- A range of drum grip faces to accommodate specimens 8 to 28 mm (0.31 and 1.1 in) in diameter
JIS L2701, JIS L2703, JIS L2704, JIS L2705
These 50 kN (11,000 lbf) capstan grips are designed specifically for testing the tensile properties of rope with a diameter between 8 and 28 mm (0.31 and 1.1 in). The upper and lower grips incorporate an easy-to-load split drum and the upper grip has a counterweight attached to maintain alignment of the grips with the axis of the universal tester during testing.
A grip set includes upper and lower grips with grooved faces inside the split drum to increase gripping of the specimen. Standard grip faces are for rope with a diameter of 8 to 12 mm (0.31 to 0.47 in). A range of additional drum grip faces is available to accommodate ropes with a diameter up to 28 mm (1.1 in).

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 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.
