Guide Sleeves

December 15, 2017

Because of the process of operating the Tensilkut I and Tensilkut II, the guide sleeves eventually wear out.  We keep all sizes of guide sleeves in stock for immediate shipment.

Snow at Tensilkut

December 8, 2017

It’s snowing in Tennessee – a rare occurrence, especially this early in the season.

But it looks a little like the Christmas season.  We probably won’t decorate this evergreen with tensile bars, however.

 

10-13 Tensilkut I

December 7, 2017

The 10-13 Tensilkut I is the same size and model as the original Tensilkut machine first made back in 1955.  This machine has the smallest motor of any Tensilkut machine, whether a Tensilkut I or Tensilkut II, and consequently the lowest cutting capacity.  It also, true to the Tensilkut heritage, does an excellent job of preparing tensile specimens from thin materials.  While we don’t recommend this model for cutting steel samples of more than 1/8″ thickness, and certainly not for harder materials, it does a superb job at preparing aluminum and softer materials of up to 1/4″ thickness.

The 10-13 Tensilkut I is a fine choice for a small testing lab, where space is at a premium, or where only a limited number of specimens are needed.  As with other Tensilkut machines, this machine will prepare specimens in a wide variety of specifications, including ASTM E8, ASTM A370, ASTM D638, or whatever you might need.  Contact us for more information and a quote, or visit our Tensilkut website for more information on this and other equipment to make your lab more productive.
