Manual non-shift wedge grips are versatile grips for tensile testing a wide variety of materials, including metals, plastics, and composites. The open-front design allows easy insertion of specimens and exchange of grip faces. The self-tightening action means samples are held firmly within the grip faces, minimizing slippage during testing.

Each manual non-shift wedge grip set includes upper and lower grips and file-teeth grip faces for flat plate specimens. Standard grip sets are available with maximum capacity between 5 kN (1,100 lbf) and 300 kN (66,000 lbf). In addition, grip sets are available with wide 50 mm (2.0 in) file-teeth grip faces for grips with maximum capacity between 5 kN and 100 kN (22,000 lbf). Grip sets of 250 kN (55,000 lbf) and 300 kN are supplied with 50 mm file-teeth grip faces as standard.

A comprehensive selection of additional grip faces can be found in the document on Grip Faces for Manual and Pneumatic Non-Shift Wedge Grips. Options include grip faces especially designed for rods, wires, materials with high hardness, and composite materials.
