Home of the "SUPER COUPON"®
The BSC-1PLT fixture can be used to cut bend specimens from welder performance test samples in accordance with ASME, AWS, and Military codes and standards. The clamp design can accommodate the warpage common in plate samples as well as taper from end to end. However, the sample edges that are clamped must be straight. Saw-cut coupon edges are best. Flame-cut coupons that have irregularities or warpage will not work.
Only moderate hand clamping is required
to hold the sample in place. The upper jaw of the plate fixture is spring balanced for
self-release when the clamps are loosened.
Typical cutting time is 2-5 minutes per bend specimen. Indexing time is a matter of seconds.
Templates are designed to meet specific codes and standards. The stocked part numbers are listed below and on the price list. Other special templates can be manufactured to order. All part numbers are designated by the BSC prefix followed by the code abbreviation, the bend specimen width, and the cutting blade width. The template dimensions include a factor to add approximately 0.020 inch to the specimen width for clean-up by grinding or sanding.
