Hydraulic Testing System Features Single Side-Acting Hydraulic Grips

The Instron 600 kN Hydraulic Testing System with single side-acting hydraulic grips is completely customizable: The grips are excellent for tensile testing of stranded wire or cable and feature longer jaw faces to better accommodate gripping. These longer jaws are important for tensile testing, because strands can easily slip from conventional grips, affecting the integrity of the test and test results.
