Grips and Fixtures from Mecmesin

Gripping a sample correctly for testing is a fundamental aspect of test repeatability. The sample must be held firmly enough not to slip, but not so as to distort it, or introduce localised changes in sample performance under load.

Appropriate fixtures combine:

  • Characteristics for load or torque
  • Size capacity
  • The surface of the grip faces
  • The method of tightening
  • Adjustment for alignment
  • Interchangeability

In industry standard methods, the method of gripping is often specified. Mecmesin can provide a full range of approved grips and fixtures for use with all our systems and instruments.

Our accessories catalogue includes load and torque cells and sensors, cables and peripherals, grips and cradles: everything you require for a complete testing solution.

Custom Fixture Design Service

When testing flexible, moulded or asymmetric items, custom grips are often required. We have an expert in-house design and manufacturing facility for these specific needs. These typically include vacuum fixtures for preform packaging, cap mandrels to fit specific designs, grips for control devices with moving parts, jigs for bending awkward or large items, fixtures for torsion springs, guards and containment, and many more.
