Upgrade Your Old Side Acting Grips
Mechanical grips can become cumbersome when an operator has to continually tighten and loosen the grips for each test. Additionally, as grips age, you may experience difficulty in their operation and an increase in maintenance. Replacing your existing mechanical or side acting pneumatic grips (up to 10 kN) with Instron 2712-04x and 2712-05x pneumatic side acting grips will improve your testing in a number of ways.
Do you wish it was easier to change jaw faces?
The new 2712 Series pneumatic grips make it really easy and require no tools or retaining pins; you simply slide to insert, and a ball and socket locates the jaw face correctly, removing the need for any tools when changing the jaw faces.
Do you wish you could minimize the risk of pinched fingers?
The 2712 Series pneumatic grips utilize a jaw face shield, adjustable jaw face closing speeds, and a larger throat area to reduce pinch incidents.
|Adjustable Jaw Face Shields
Protects fingers from pinching hazards, while the designed holes in the shield allow for quick and easy jaw face changes
Note: 2712-051 grips are too small for shields
Slows the grip closure speed and further reduce pinching hazard
Operates side to side, reducing the risk of accidental grip closure during sample insertion and removal
|Larger Throat Area
Increases room for operator fingers, reducing pinch hazard
Do you find it difficult to accurately load specimens?
The shield and jaw faces have marks to aide specimen loading. The grips also include a specimen stop, aiding in specimen alignment and giving you a consistent and repeatable specimen position, which in turn, is likely to reduce scatter in your results.
|Notch in Jaw Face Shield
Allows for quick insertion and placement of wires without having to line up the specimen, as well as repeatable sample positioning
|Specimen Alignment Tool
Acts as a stop and allows for quick sample insertion, as well as repeatable sample positioning that ensures axial alignment and reduces test data scatter from misalignment
