Seatallan Ltd is a specialist supplier of materials testing grips and fixtures designed to fit most OEM testing machines. All our standard grips and fixtures are manufactured by us here in the UK to the most exacting specifications.

 

Our high-precision manual, hydraulic, and pneumatic grips, jigs and fixtures ensure your product testing and manufacturing quality control is always efficient and standard compliant.

 

All our grips are supplied and priced as a pair and include a standard set of jaws, exceptions are fixtures such as bending jigs, friction testing etc where the upper part is completely different from the bottom.  All grips and fixtures come complete and ready to use and are adapted to suit your particular testing machine.  Due to the large quantity of different testing machines in the market we keep our grips as piece parts and assemble to order.  For the most popular grips we hold stock of the piece parts but will require a short time to machine the correct fittings into the grip to suit your machine, grips that are not so popular will need longer to complete.
