Universal Testing Machines are incredibly versatile tools for determining the properties of materials but they’re only as functional as the grips and fixtures with which they’re equipped! Our grips and fixtures will expand the functionality of your machine and give you the capabilities you’re looking for. Read on to learn more about the grips and fixtures we offer.
Whether you’re pulling, twisting, bending, or crushing, we’ve got the grips and fixtures you need!
Manual vise grips are versatile general purpose grips for capacities of 50kN or less. More information
Pneumatic grips are available as either wedge or vise types. They allow for rapid sample changes and constant clamping force. Pneumatic grips are attached to the testing machine using eye-end type adapters. More information
Wedge grips easy specimen loading, alignment and positioning. They are well suited for testing high strength materials, such as metals and composites. More information
Rope and Thread
These grips are applicable for filaments, cords, yarn, fine wires, narrow ribbons, ropes, etc. The guide rollers generate a slow notch free stress relief to prevent the breakage of the specimen in the clamping area. Pneumatic versions available for most grip designs. More information
Ribbon and Webbing
These grips are applicable for webbings and ribbons. The drums offer stress relief to prevent the breakage of the specimen in the clamping area. More information
Bend fixtures are used to determine the flexural properties of rigid and semi-rigid materials. They are available in a variety of capacities, support diameter and widths, spans, and 3 or 4 point configurations. More information
Compression platens are used to determine the compression characteristics of material samples. Platens are commonly manufactured from aluminum or steel and attach to the testing machine with an eye-end connector. More information
These are versatile small tensile grips. Pinching grips are suitable for low force applications. They can be chain mounted for flexible positioning. More information
ADMET’s easy to use adhesive fixtures are employed by the adhesive industry to test the peel strength, bonding, and shear properties of adhesives. More information
ADMET’s hydraulic grips are meant for high force applications with capacities up to 2000 kN. More information
Self-tightening grips are ideal for materials that thin as they are stretched such as elastomers and other soft materials. They enable fast loading of materials like plastics, fabrics, films, and rubber. More information
These grips are designed to hold samples during torsion testing. More information
These fixtures are designed to test the puncture resistance of materials. More information
Whether you need additional grips, fixtures, and accessories, a brand new testing machine, or a retrofit of an existing one, ADMET can help you improve your material testing process!
