Instron, a leading provider of testing equipment designed to evaluate mechanical properties of materials and components, has released its new split insert tensile grips for high-volume production testing of shoulder-end or button-head machined specimens.
As the preferred solution for testing high-strength materials that may damage or excessively wear traditional grip arrangements, these grips promote effective testing on a variety of metals and alloys.
The split insert tensile grips conform to ASTM E8, A370, A48, and GOST 1497 (type III specimen), while also improving the operator’s ability to meet alignment standards ASTM E1012 and Nadcap AC7101. The automatic positioning of the inserts ensures uniform specimen support and loading for standard specimens.
Designed as a compact, self-contained assembly, the split insert tensile grips: eliminate risk of specimen ejection at failure, reduce loose parts to ensure operator safety when inserting and removing specimens, and minimize the test area required for installation and maximize the grip separation for testing with an extensometer.
