Screw Grips up to 50 kN

In screw grips the gripping force is applied manually or via an electric motor. These grips are used mostly for smaller test loads (to max. 50 kN) and thinner specimens—fine wires, fibers, films.
Screw grips

Key Advantages and Features 

  • Gripping force depends on the locked rotor torque released by the operator
  • Very easy to operate
  • Large opening widths for flexibility in use
  • Most commonly used screw grips are U-shaped for good accessibility
  • Simple design principle enables standard version to be resistant to high temperatures
  • Depending on the type, these grips have an axial bearing in the gripping unit for increased gripping forces
  • Many screw grips feature free adjustment of both jaws, allowing asymmetrical specimens to be tested
Seal strength of packaging films

Screw Grips

Fmax 1 kN 
  • Specimen material:
    Metal, plastics, textile, paper, wood
  • Specimen shape:
    Round and flat specimens, asymmetrical specimens, sealed and glued specimens
  • Type of loading:
    Tensile, compression, alternating load

Advantages and features

  • Adjustable opposing jaw for fast, easy testing, including joined (asymmetrical) specimens
  • If the test configuration changes the jaws can be changed quickly and easily - no tools required. The jaws are centered automatically.
  • The use of ball bearings enables secure gripping of the specimen even at low operating forces.
  • Large opening width enables flexibility in use.
  • Reliable specimen gripping guaranteed even with varying applications. Large range of jaws allows optimum matching of the grips to your application.
  • Even specimens prone to shrinkage are securely held via automatic re-tightening by means of a laminated plate spring
  • The grips are easy to operate in a temperature chamber and reach the test temperature quickly thanks to their very low mass.
  • Precise test results combined with high number of cycles achieved through centric insertion of specimen using easily adjustable centering stop.
  • Ergonomic, open design for fast, easy specimen insertion and clamping

Screw Grips 

Fmax 2.5 kN
  • Specimen material:
    Metal, plastics, textile, paper, wood
  • Specimen shape:
    Round and flat specimens, asymmetrical specimens, sealed and glued specimens
  • Type of loading:
    Tensile, compression, alternating load

Advantages and features

  • Large opening widths offer flexibility.
  • Adjustable opposing jaws allows eccentric specimen gripping, enabling asymmetrical gripping of specimens.
  • A range of jaws ensures optimum matching to test material: Various materials, surface structures and gripping surface sizes are available.

  • High gripping force is achieved through the axial bearing and gear ratio in the clamping unit.
  • Prestressed spring disk induces automatic retightening in smaller areas. Specimens with lower thickness reduction can also be gripped securely over the course of the entire test.
  • High temperature resistance (-70 to +250 °C) is ideal for use in temperature chambers.
  • Simple handling
  • The U-design provides good accessibility to the screw grip and offers ample space for flexible specimen ends

Fmax 10 kN
  • Specimen material:
    insulating materials
  • Specimen shape:
    flat specimens
  • Type of loading:
    tensile

Advantages and features

  • The clamping distance is symmetrical to the tensile axis. This is advantageous because the specimen is not subject to bending moments.
  • Secure gripping is ensured by protruding pins located in the jaws.
  • A support grip located in the center of the screw grips facilitates gripping and vertical alignment of the specimen.
