The Thwing-Albert JDC Precision Sample Cutter is widely recognized as the preferred sample preparation tool for tensile testing of thin sheeted materials due to the cutting accuracy. So, how did the JDC win that reputation? Lots of attention to detail for the blades and a strict quality control process.
When the JDC cuts test strips, they are an exact width and parallel throughout their entire length. The positive cutting action of the dual blades and precision ground base shear cut both sides of the sample at once assuring a clean, accurate cut every time. The cutting blades are made of high quality tool steel which is stress relieved by cycling between cold and hot temperatures to prevent the blades from warping. Customers can select from models to cut widths of 1/8 to 3 inch and strip lengths of 10, 12, or 16 inches.Read More
