500 N Screw Flat Grips for AGS-X Series and EZ-X Series

1 kN Pneumatic Flat Grips for Foil

500 N (110 lbf) screw flat grips are a manually actuated flat grip with smooth grip faces. The grips are designed for low-force applications with small or sub-sized samples. Similar to standard screw flat grips, these grips are versatile and are used for static tensile testing a wide range of materials, including rubbers, plastics, textiles, cloth, and paper, in film form.

These grips are available as a grip set containing upper and lower grips or containing only an upper grip. The upper grip screws directly into the load cell and is compatible with AGS-X series 5 N (1.1 lbf) to 100 N (22 lbf) load cells and EZ-X series 5 N to 500 N load cells. Compatibility with larger-capacity load cells requires additional coupling joints. The lower grip fits into the lower joint of the universal tester.
