50 kN Capstan Grips for Heavy Cloth
Shimadzu’s 50 kN (11,000 lbf) capstan grips are ideal for testing heavy cloths, belts and straps up to 3 mm (0.12 in) thick and 80 mm (3.15 in) wide. The split-drum design firmly holds specimens that tend to slip or tear when using traditional grips. The upper and lower grips incorporate an easy-to-load split-drum and the upper grip has a counterweight attached to align the grips with the loading axis of the test frame.
Specimens are inserted between the upper split-drum, wrapped around the upper and lower drums, and fixed between the lower split-drum. Utilize the spring-loaded plunger to open the drum and easily access the grip face. The drums self-tighten as the samples are loaded to ensure that samples remain secured in place.
