TMI 22-80-00 Ray-Ran Autocycle Notching Cutter

Product Ref: TMI 22-80-00

Produce precise stress concentrated notch profiles in Impact and Charpy specimens


A world leader by design, this machine will cut accurate notch profiles to International Test Standards such as ISO 179, ISO 180 and ASTM D256.

At the heart of the machine is a custom built adaptive Microprocessor Control Unit with LCD screen ensuring feed and cutter speeds are always selected for optimum performance.

The anti-vibration guide rail system optimizes profile accuracy and the multi-sample loading feature of the vice can accommodate up to 16 test specimens 4mm thick, all accurately cut within 20 seconds increasing productivity. The quick auto-return feature ensures the vice is always in the correct place for loading and unloading the test specimens and the micro height adjustment, notch depth comparator and sample setting gauge ensure that the cut notch depth is accurately controlled.

Cutter wheel profiles of 0.1mm and 1.0mm radius as well as 0.8mm and 2.00 'U' notch cutter wheels are also available. Non-standard and special notch requirements can also be provided for.

Charpy Testing

The specimen is mounted horizontally and supported unclamped at both ends. The pendulum is released and allowed to strike through the specimen.

Izod Testing

A test specimen is clamped perpendicular into the impact tester's fixture with the notched side facing the striking edge of the pendulum. The pendulum strikes through the specimen.
