ASTM E399 TESTING FIXTURE

FRACTURE TOUGHNESS TENSILE CLEVISES

ASTM E399 TESTING FIXTURE
ASTM E399 TESTING FIXTURE

Can be designed and fabricated clevises of all types and sizes . A typical pair of clevises are those conforming to ASTM Standard E 399. These forks are made of high-strength, heat-treated steel for tools, according to the ASTM standards. Exist three pair of tensile clevises  of different sizes, fabricated of 17-4PH stainless steel, with hardened 440C stainless steel pins.

Are available, however, other clevis designs and special attachment fittings of all sizes and configurations. In This way it’s possible meet the specific needs of each application to metals, composites, plastics, or ceramics testing.During the low strength materials testing such as plastic, forks manufactured at low cost steels can often be used.
