Tensilkut II

July 24, 2017

The Tensilkut II is an efficient, cost effective way to prepare tensile samples.  Recently, we cut some specimens from fiber filled composites for demonstration; the attached video shows the cutting of two ASTM D638 Type I tensile bars, from start to finish, in about 8 minutes.

This video also shows measuring of the specimen during the cutting process, which is not necessary with a properly adjusted Tensilkut machine and master template, but does demonstrate the accuracy of the system.  Tensilkut machines are designed to be operated by lab personnel without previous machining experience.  Please contact us today for further information on how we can help you with your testing program.
