mnc-pneumatic-wedge-action-grips

MNC Series Pneumatic Type Wedge Grips Movement centered with high pre-load Versions with capacities 10, 20, 50, 100kN
To perform tensile tests on plastics, aluminum, steel, composite materials such as epoxy resin with reinforced fiberglass.
Principle: a large pneumatic piston moves the wedge jaws against the test sample. Due to the action of the tensile on
the specimen during the test, the clamping force is reinforced even more.
The clamping force is approx. 3 to 5 times higher than the tensile force. Thus, the samples can be maintained very well with low coefficient-friction.
