Pin Grips for Flat Specimens
- Designed for tensile testing of hard metal plates that are difficult to grip using more common grips
- Models with maximum capacity up of 10 kN (4,400 lbf), 50 kN (11,000 lbf), and 100 kN (22,000 lbf)
- Specimens are held within the grips by passing pins through holes in the specimens
- Includes adjustment screws, or bushes, that center different thickness specimens
Pin grips are very user friendly and are designed for conducting tensile tests of hard metal plate specimens that are difficult to grip. Specimens are held within the grips by passing pins through holes in the specimens.
A beneficial feature of these grips is different specimen thicknesses can be accommodated because of the incorporation of specimen thickness adjustment screws, or bushes, which position the specimen at the center of the grips.

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.
