Static Tension Fixtures

Suture Testing 

The suture test fixture is used for the tensile testing of suture material. Using this fixture one can determine the modulus and ultimate strength for the suture. The suture specimen is wrapped about an "O" shaped rod and the rod is gripped within a standard flat jaw grip. Capstan type friction restrains the suture from pulling out of the grips.

Contact us with your specific test requirements and we will provide an estimate for creating the desired tension you are looking for.
