Optical Fiber Tensile Jig
- Specifically for tensile testing optical fibers and other brittle fibers
- Pneumatic action minimizes specimen slippage at the grip faces
- 0.1 kN (22 lbf) maximum capacity
This jig is designed for tensile testing optical fibers and other brittle fibers. The jig consists of upper and lower pneumatic flat grips with flat grip faces followed by large-diameter capstans.
The pneumatic flat grips apply a constant pressure during testing, minimizing slippage of the specimen at the grip faces, and the large-diameter capstan reduces stress on the fiber, lowering the risk of specimen breakage at the chuck. In addition, the capstan itself applies a self-tightening action and the two capstans are arranged on opposite sides of the testing axis to minimize off-axis forces.
A maximum operable air pressure of 0.7 MPa (7 kgf/cm2, 102 psi) is available for the pneumatic flat grips. A foot valve unit is necessary to open and close the pneumatic flat grips. An air compressor is not included in the optical fiber tensile jig set. In certain regions, an air compressor is available as an accessory. Please contact your local Shimadzu representative for availability.
Additional items needed for operation:
- A 0.7 MPa (7 kgf/cm2, 102 psi) air compressor
- Foot valve unit

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.
