Compact High Temperature Creeping Tester with Small Punch (1350°C Max.) - OTF-1500X-S-CR

Please email for lead time
Item Number: OTF-1500X-S-CR
Transported by LTL Freight (Truck)

OTF-1500X-S-CR is a compact high-temperature creeping tester via a small punch method up to 1350ºC, which can achieve high temp. creeping strength with a small disc sample efficiently and economically.  It is an excellent tool for researching new generation super-alloy by high throughput.
