Load Cells, Dynamometers, Grips, & Fixtures

United offers a large range of Load Cells Grips and Fixtures. The range extends from simple clamps, for example for plastics, textile rubber and paper specimens via wedge and hydraulic grips (for example for the finest wires or high strength steel specimens) to pressure and working plates for building materials, packaging and components supplemented by bending and folding fixtures for chipboard, testing of welded connections, etc.


United's Load Cells are designed to precisely measure the amount of force (load) applied to the specimen being tested. Available in single or dual bridge, United load cells offer the flexibility of using two readouts simultaneously, if desired. Constructed to meet ASTM E-4 requirements.

Remote Load Cells Series MR01, MR02, MR03 are used with M5i and M3i Indicators  just plug and test. Series R01

EDXtreme and EDjunior series are precision Instruments that display the force in tension between two attached shackles.

United Transverse Rupture Unit for Carbide requires 2.5" diameter compression plates.

United DAT-18-CUP Test Measuring Unit with Optical Encoder, Rotating Chuck and Micrometer with rolling foot.

United Transverse Flexue Fixture (9kN) with Deflection Coil. Complies with ASTM D 790. 

United STD-75-CF Compression Fixture (ASTM-D-3410).

The G1110 is designed for determining the puncture resistance of plastic films and other materials up to 1,000 lbF (5 kN), in conformance with ASTM D5748. Four toggle clamps and a compression ring with concentric ridges effectively secure the material, while the included plunger with ball probe stretches and ruptures the sample.

The G1111 secures textile webbing, tape, and braided materials typically used in construction, shipping, and other industrial uses. The grip is ideal for conformance to ASTM D6775 and related standards, accommodating a wide range of sample widths and forces up to 2,000 lbF (10 kN).

Ultra-lightweight and subcompact force sensors for measuring compression and tension loads in a limited space environment.
