ST5 2.5kN Bending Jig

A simple 3 point bend jig that relies on the materials testing machine to maintain alignment between the top and bottom parts. It is constructed in aluminium with steel anvils. The span is infinitely adjustable between 10 and 300mm.

An adjustable 4 point bend attachment is available with a span of 10-150mm. Anvil radius is 5mm.

The anvils are removable and different radii can be supplied on request. There is a minimum size for the interchangeable anvils of 5mm diameter. Below 5mm a radiused block is substituted for the round anvils. If required rotating anvils mounted on bearings can be fitted, please enquire if this is necessary. A transducer mounting kit is available to fit an 8mm diameter gauging LVDT to the fixture. This is sometimes desirable when sample deflection is needed to high accuracies.
