Specimen fabrication

You want to test a material, however, you don't have the right specimens? We can help you!

By means of injection molding, we manufacture all common test specimen consisting of standard plastics, thermoplastic elastomers, and high-performance materials. A selection of possible test specimens is shown in our Specimen catalog (pdf).

In addition, a large variety of different test specimens can be produced at the KUZ from plates, molded parts or semi-finished products by means of punching, milling and cutting. When taking specimens from plates, possible anisotropy must be taken into account. This is caused by melt flow orientations during manufacturing and the orientation of fibers in the plate. Therefore, please inform us of the desired removal direction when making your inquiry.

Below you will find an overview of which test specimens can be manufactured at the KUZ.

Plate pressing

It is also possible to produce plates by pressing thermoplastic material. The plate dimensions can be freely selected in the range from 100 mm x 100 mm to 360 mm x 360 mm and a thickness of 1 mm to 10 mm.

In the PUR range, plates with dimensions of 335 mm x 260 mm up to a maximum thickness of 20 mm can be produced.
