TENSILKUT TENSILE SAMPLE PREPARATION EQUIPMENT



Tensilkut Tensile Sample Preparation Equipment

A test specimen is the most important component of tensile testing for it determines the actual physical properties of the material being tested. The specimen must conform to exact physical dimensions and must be free of induced cold working or heat distortion. Qualified laboratory personnel and accurately calibrated tensile machines are important, but the ultimate test results are based on the quality and accuracy of the test specimen.

A highly skilled machinist, a precision milling machine and considerable hand finishing can achieve the required configurations of the test specimen. However, the slow milling cutter speeds create heavy chip loads and can induce severe internal distortion to the machined edges. The amount of induced cold working or heat distortion cannot be determined by visual or heat distortion cannot be determined by visual inspection, hence test results often produce erratic and inaccurate tensile properties.

Specimens of light gauge sheet must be blanked, sheared or die cut to the required tensile configuration. The basic principle of shearing causes severe deformation and distortion to the critical specimen edges and creates even greater variations and errors in the physical properties.

The ideal tensile specimen should duplicate the pure basic metal or plastic being tested with a total absence of tool marks, incipent cracks, induced stresses, internal deformation or heat distortion. Our range of TensilkuT machines achieve these ideal requirements and produce an almost perfect test specimen.

CNC TENSILKUT III

CNC TENSILKUT III

The CNC Tensilkut III was developed for use by lab personnel without previous machining experience. It employs an integral microcomputer to prepare those specimens which we have programmed in accordance with the customer’s requirements. This system features a Windows based software with point-and-click operation; the color monitor displays tool paths, speeds and depths of cut during operation. The CNC Tensilkut III is completely enclosed, inhibiting flying chips and lessening the noise of the cutting operation. It also includes a vacuum chip reduction system and a micro drop coolant system for improved edge finishes. The CNC Tensilkut III is shipped fully set up; the computer need only be hooked up for the system to be ready to operate.

CNC TENSILATHE

CNC TENSILATHE

The CNC Tensilathe is a new, fully automatic lathe developed specifically for turning round test specimens from most metals and non-metallics. The CNC Tensilathe employs a microcomputer which is programmable to prepare a wide variety of specimens from approximately 1/4" overall diameter to in excess of 2" overall diameter. The Pentium computer with integral hard drive includes a color monitor, keyboard and mouse.

This new lathe features a Windows based software featuring pull down menus for easy operation; neither machining nor CNC tool experience are required for the user to quickly learn to turn his own bars. Optional software will allow specimen contours to be imported from most CAD drawing programs; most users prefer to allow us to program their systems. This lathe uses a standard 3-jaw chuck; a 4-jaw chuck is available for gripping irregular pieces. The unit contains a Micro-Drop coolant system; a chip shield inhibits flying chips and reduces the noise of the lathe. An emergency stop switch is located on the front of the unit, as are all power switches.

TENSILKUT I

TENSILKUT I

The Tensilkut I was designed for the specific purpose of preparing flat metal or non-metallic test specimens. The compact size of the equipment permits it to be conveniently located in the laboratory. Small table top units or larger floor mounted models are available to accomodate any space and/or work volume requirements. The specimens are accurate to within +.0005" when prepared on the Tensilkut machine with a Tensilbit and a standard or special master template. Optional mist coolant and vacuum systems are available for the Tensilkut I.

TEMPLATES AND TENSILBITS

TEMPLATES AND TENSILBITS

Tensilkut master templates are available for flat test specimens to ASTM, ASM, AISI, BS, DIN, or any other international testing standard. These moderately priced templates have guaranteed contour accuracies within ASTM tolerances and all templates are interchangeable. A standard tensile specimen can be machined, and with no change in the TensilkuT controls, a subminiature specimen can be accurately prepared.

TENSILGRIND

TENSILGRIND

The Tensilgrind is a precision contour grinding machine developed for the preparation of foil and sheet test specimens from high hardness metals and tough alloys. Tensilgrind employs the basic principle of the Tensilkut, wherein a precision master template is manually guided across the table surface with the removal of metal being accomplished in a series of light grinding passes.

TENSILSAW

TENSILSAW

The Tensilsaw, powered by a high speed motor, is used to saw straight strips from glass laminates, composites or hard plastics. The thin diamond blade cuts the material for insertion into the Tensilkut template, or for flexural or other tests without heating or burning the strip edges. Strip widths of 1/4" to 1" can be accomplished with the Tensilsaw. A plexiglass guard above the blade acts as a chip shield.
