CCSi designs and manufactures high quality specimen cutting dies completely inhouse at our facility in Akron, OH. Our complete vertical integration allows CCSi to provide exceptional quality dies at competitive prices.
Our process starts with high, quality American made tool steel. We then grind, machine, harden, wire EDM, sharpen, and dimensionally certify the dies. The wire EDM manufacturing process creates perfectly vertical interior walls. This allows the die to be sharpened repeatedly without altering the dimensional characteristics of the sample and provides excellent long term value.
All CCSi dies come with the serial and model number laser engraved for easy identification. Also included is a rugged, foam lined carrying case for protection while the die is not in use.
Our standard dies have no adapters and are intended for use in a “clicker” style press.
CCSi manufactures these high quality Specimen Cutting Dies for determining whether fabrics coated with rubber or rubber-like materials display increased stiffening when exposed to decreasing ambient (subnormal) temperatures, as described in ASTM D2136 ‘Test Method for Coated Fabrics — Low Temperature Bend Test’.
ASTM D2136 describes a basic procedure to ascertain a material’s flexibility, and suitability for use, at a subnormal temperature.
