Precision specimen cutters

MonTech is the leading supplier for specimen preparation systems for the rubber, plastics and composites industry with over 2000 dies and preparation systems manufactured annually.

The product line includes a full range of precision specimen cutting dies as well as clicker presses. MonTech dies are built to last and are considered to be the most reliable and durable in the market due to special machining and hardening processes, full compliance to international standards and a stringent quality control.

All specimen cutting dies are manufactured from high grade tools steel to guarantee long lasting cutting edge sharpness for highly precise and repeatable test specimen preparation and therefore a higher test result accuracy and improved repeatability.

The cutter are precision machined and EDM cut before they are heat treated several times during the manufacturing process to remove any machining stresses. Each die is individually diamond lapped finished for increased cutting edge wear resistance. All cutters are supplied as a complete assembly with a spring loaded sample ejection system to remove the cut sample from the die and at the same time protect the cutting edges.

Cutters are available in accordance to international standards but can also be manufactured to any size or shape required. Each cutting die is of course supplied with a detailed, traceable test and calibration report listing all critical sizes and dimensions and proofing full compliance to the related international standard or specification.

Each die is also available as a multi station die combining multiple cutting dies onto a single cover platen and mounting stud allowing multiple samples to be cut in a single operation.

Mounting studs and die height configuration

MonTech precision cuttings dies are equipped with mounting studs with a internal thread of M16x1 (in the cover platen) and a outer diameter of 25mm to accurately fit in P-VS 3000 series sample cutters.

All dies are precisely machined and calibrated to a die height of 32mm plus a 12mm cover platen to which the actual cutting die is fitted to.

Of course customized mounting shanks and studs are also available to suit individual customer requirements. These include also recessed or grooved studs, quick-clamp and magnetic studs or simply flat cover platens.

The cover plate – with or without attached stud – ensures an even distribution of the cutting force onto the entire die as well as houses the ejector system. This full-faced mechanical ejector is incorporated into the blade and is factory adjusted to the target specimen thickness. On completion of the cutting operation the finished specimens are ejected. This minimizes the risk of injury to the operator and damage to the blade. For sensitive materials also specialized foam ejectors are available.

Sharpening and re-certification of cutting dies

In order to maintain highest quality of production and standards MonTech also offers re-calibration and resharpening of test dies to ensure that dies are capable of meeting the requirements defined by the related standards or specification.

While re-sharpening dies the die height is precisely calibrated to the initial height of 32mm eliminating the need for the customer to re-adjust the sample cutter stroke and height when changing over between different dies. All results of the rework and re-sharpening process are precisely documented in a detailed test report and traceable calibration certificate.
