The G1061 wedge grip is designed for a range of tensile testing applications of up to 1,200 pounds. Typical applications include testing plastics, metals, packaging materials and medical devices. Serrated, hardened stainless steel jaws are easily opened with an ergonomic spring-loaded knob and rack and pinion-type mechanism. The jaws ride on rollers instead of sliding along the surface of the housing, as with conventional wedge grips. This design prevents jamming and improves gripping characteristics. The jaws are 0.75 inch wide, and the open housing design permits the testing of samples of any width. Maximum sample thickness is 0.25 inch. The grip is designed to mount to virtually any force gage, test stand or material tester.
