ASTM D695 Compression Testing

May 13, 2015

Preparing the ASTM D695 Specimen for compression testing is a two step process.  First, the gauge section must be cut in the blank, using one of the Tensilkut Master Templates designed specifically for this purpose.

After the gauge section has been cut, the specimen is inserted into the Tensilkut Master Template which cuts the ends square and parallel at 3.13″, in accordance with ASTM D695.  Different templates are available for  Tensilkut I and Tensilkut II machines.
