TA Electroforce tension/torsion fatigue grips are constructed from stainless steel, allowing extended use in biological situations. Their low mass also allows the grips to be used for higher frequency test applications.
TA Electroforce titanium tension/compression fatigue grips are low-mass grips that can be used in a variety of applications including engineered materials, biomaterials and tissue testing.
TA Electroforce low-force testing grips have a smooth gripping surface suitable for compliant samples. Typical samples include collagen gels, fibrin gels, or other biomaterials and engineered materials that are fragile and require careful handling. The grips can be used either in a sterile environment, such as the ElectroForce® BioDynamic® test instrument, or for non-sterile applications in air or in a heated saline bath with an Electroforce 3100, 3200 or Testbench system.
TA Electroforce wedge grips are useful for higher-force test applications, and are available with several options to accommodate different types of specimens and loading conditions.
TA Electroforce DMA grips are provided as a lightweight pair, and are designed specifically for Dynamic Mechanical Analysis testing applications.
TA Electroforce tissue grips were specifically designed for ElectroForce® BioDynamic® system tissue testing applications. Their unique, cam design is self-tightening, which allows for secure gripping throughout the test.
The TA Electroforce patented thermal electric cooled grips cool and freeze specimen tissue within the jaw area, thereby preventing slippage during the test. Unlike other cryogenically cooled grips, these grips are self-contained and do not need to be replenished with CO2 or N2.
These tensile grips are autoclaveable, low mass grips that can be used inside BioDynamic® chambers. Two different grip surface finishes are available to accommodate biological sample gripping requirements.
ElectroForce® platens are used for compression testing applications such as durability testing of components, or for dynamic characterization of viscoelastic materials. The platens have a lightweight, corrosion resistant design, making them well-suited for use on an ElectroForce® test system or servo-pneumatic system.
TA Electroforce offers multi-specimen and porous platen options for ElectroForce® BioDynamic® test systems to provide a greater range of testing applications.
