The gripper kit for tensile testing allows the possibility to perform tensile tests on mushroom shaped pillars (for example Focused Ion Beam milled or other manufacturing techniques) with special tensile grippers.

This kit is delivered with the following items:

  • Adapter to fit the gripper on the indenter
  • 5 standard grippers

The gripper is in silicon, 200 µm thick. It can grip samples with a gauge diameter 2 – 5 µm with a mushroom diameter up to 15 µm.

Misalignments can be accommodated up to 1° and 0.5 µm while keeping stress deviation below 10% within the sample.

Additional grippers available as separate item

Customized grippers available on request


GKT-D: for standard displacement head DH

GKT-M: for miniaturized displacement head MDHL
