Early Tensilkut Machines

October 9, 2017

When Tensilkut was first created, in 1953, there was one model, with a maximum capacity of .250″, and limited ability to cut tensile samples from harder materials.  Within a few years, this changed, and a machine with the capacity of up to .500″ on softer metals was added.  This is the press announcement:

Thereafter, Tensilbits and templates for preparing plastic, fiberglass and other nonmetallic tensile bars were added.  Today, our line includes the traditional Tensilkut I for cutting test specimens from flat metals and plastics, along with the Tensilkut II and CNC Tensilkut III, along with machines for turning round tensile specimens and notching impact and shear bend test bars.  How far we have progressed.
