Product Description

The Shimpo base mount test stand grip is an accessory for Shimpo force gauge test stands that attaches to a test stand to allow testing on a range of materials.

A choice of grip styles is available. The spool base mount grip is for anchoring hard-to-hold items such as thread and filaments. The wedge base mount grip has jaws that close on the specimen and tighten as tension is applied, for testing wires, strip material, plastic tape, or film. The Jacobs chuck base mount grip is for testing low-gauge wire and rigid rods. The flat chuck base mount grip has serrated faces for tensile testing. The tape base mount grip has self-tightening action for testing rubber, tape, and paper. The tensile base mount grip has manually tightened, serrated jaws for gripping large loads. The clevis base mount grip with concave shape centers odd-shaped samples under load, including punched samples or tension springs. The cord and twine base mount grip with non-locking pins provides a figure-eight wrap of specimen to ensure a center break. The fabric base mount grip has eccentrically mounted, serrated roller grip for self- tightening of specimens.

Force gauges, also called push-pull gauges or tension gauges, measure the tensile (pull) or compression (push) force applied to an object. They are used to test the strength and functionality of a variety of machines, electronic components, cables, wires, and consumer products in scientific, medical, automotive, quality assurance, and manufacturing applications. A digital force gauge shows the amount of force in digits on the gauge's display. Response time varies among digital force gauges depending on the speed of the processor. An analog (or mechanical) force gauge shows measurements on a calibrated dial. Analog force gauges are not as precise as digital force gauges, but they provide instantaneous measurements and can be used in a wider range of environmental conditions than digital force gauges. Hooks, compression plates, levers, handles, test stands, and other accessories can be used with the gauge for taking measurements on objects with a range of shapes and sizes.

Shimpo Instruments manufactures force, torque, and speed evaluation instruments. The company, founded in 1974 and headquartered in Itasca, IL, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard 9001.
