CNC Tensilkut III For Multiple Samples

October 3, 2017

Often, our customers are interested in the CNC Tensilkut III to gain the ability to clamp multiple blanks into the machine, start it and have the freedom to do other things while the machine cuts specimens unattended.  To that end, we typically set up the CNC Tensilkut III with multiple work stations, so several specimens (typically between 4 and 6, depending upon the size) can be cut at once.  This is a typical table, configured to clamp 6 strips for the preparation of ASTM E8 samples.

Once the strips are clamped to the table, the specimens are chosen on the included computer, using our Windows-based point and click system; the machine then runs through its cycle without any operator interaction.  When it’s finished, the CNC Tensilkut III shuts down, indicating that it’s safe to open the front door and remove the specimens, at which point it can be reloaded for another set of specimens. When located in the testing lab, a Tensilkut machine lets you cut your tensile bars as you need them, on your schedule.
