Schildknecht Flex Tester

METLOR Schildknecht Flex Tester consisting of a pair of stainless steel cylinders so that the axis of each pair are in the same straight line. Holding with the help of the hose clip (provided with the instrument) one end of the test specimen in a fixed grip and the other end in a reciprocating grip provides the flexing and unflexing action. The set of grip has two fixed grips and one large reciprocating grip positioned between them in order to flex half of the test specimens while the other half is being unflexed. The reciprocating grip is slide on hardened and ground rods made of high carbon steel. The reciprocating motion is provided by an eccentric and linkage mechanism driven by an electric motor through V-belt and pulleys. A six digit electronic preset counter is provided for indicating and control the number of the test cycles undergone.
