While there are many varieties of gripping technologies (wedge, screw, hydraulic, pneumatic, etc.), they all can be classified as proportional or non-proportional according to the way in which the clamping force is exerted on the specimen.

Does your system incorporate "specimen protect" or "load protect"? If you are not sure, ask us.
If it does you can use this feature to compensate for load string and specimen expansion/contraction while your furnace or chamber reaches set-point temperature.
