10 N and 50 N Clip Grips

10 N and 50 N Clip Grips

These easy-to-use clip grips are suitable for low-force tensile testing of yarns and plastics. Adjustable tensioning nuts are used to regulate the clamping force, ensuring that the sample is secured firmly. The 10 N (2.2 lbf) and 50 N (11 lbf) clip grips include flat grip faces.

10 N clip grip kits include upper and lower grips and upper coupling joints compatible with Shimadzu’s AGX-V series 5 kN (1,100 lbf) and lower load cells. The lower grips mate directly to the lower joint with a clevis pin and locknut. Additional coupling joints are necessary when using the 10 N clip grips with Shimadzu’s AGS-X series and EZ-X series load cells.

50 N clip grip kits include upper and lower grips with flat grip faces. The upper grip connects with load cells through conventional 50 N universal joints.

Operation

Squeeze the levers on the side of the grips to open the grip faces. Position the sample between the grip faces and release the lever. Check that the sample is held securely in the grip. Adjust the tensioning nut to increase or decrease the clamping force. Repeat this process for the opposing grip.

Note 1: Upper grip length includes the length of the S-shaped universal joint for the 10 N clip grips.
Note 2: The load cell coupling for the 10 N clip grips is applicable to 5 kN or lower AGX-V plus load cells. Additional coupling joints are required when these grips are used with AGS-X series and EZ-X series load cells.
