Shear Testing machine tests both Single Shear testing and Double Shear testing. The machine is meant for measuring deformable mechanical properties of fluids, plastics, composites as well as other samples where the shear stress in component can be design based or caused through external forces.
Some of the end products which are checked for defined parameters using this test include:
- Shear pins
- Shaft keys
- Certain fastener range
- Torsional shafts
- Asymmetric cantilever beams
- Manufacturing processes like punching & deep drawing
