Instron assisted a steel manufacturer with a 5985 testing system and model SF-16 split furnace to perform tensile tests to a specimen at a high temperature.
The AutoX 750 and AVE can be used for tensile testing metallic materials to ASTM E8 standards and reduce the operator interaction with the specimen.
Different sized shoulder-end metals are needed to tensile test to ASTM E8 and A370 standards, and Split Insert Tensile Holders add ease to changing the inserts.
For a manufacturer wanting to tensile test steel cord reinforcement in tires, Instron suggested vee jaw faces, coated holders, and custom pneumatic wedge grips.
A Model SF-16 split furnace can be used with an Industrial Series 300 DX system or a 5900 Series Test System for hot tensile testing.
