This accessory can be used with CTM machines to assist with most of the processes of the Compression Tester.
The self-centering platen is a cubical platen with pins mounted on two sides that help the sample to center itself in position. These adjustable pins on two axes are of different sizes and are used based on the type and size of sample. The platens are specially designed and can only be used with 2000kN and 3000kN compression testers.
