Test Specimens from Finished Components

The processing and orientation characteristics of plastic parts have a major influence on the mechanical properties of the material to be processed.

In order to obtain test specimens from injection moldings or extruded material, they are prepared from the finished parts by means of high speed cutting.

The required flow direction and orientation or the influence of processing on the plastic part, for example, can be determined in this way. Dumbbell or flat test specimens and round sheets are the most common types of milled specimen. They exhibit the smallest deviation compared to equivalent injection-molded products.
