(Product number: HSM58g
The shearing device sits in between the compression area of the HSM58 apparatus (not supplied).
There are two main components to the shear device. The lower shear support and the shear anvil. The lower shear support is asymmetrical as it only supports the specimen on one side. It has a central slot to accept the shear anvil and a through hole to accept the specimens.
The shear anvil has a central portion which sits into the slot of the lower shear support and it also has a through hole. This central portion is also hardened.
The specimens supplied are copper.
