Mould base and inserts

Mould-base and inserts

A certified mould is used to produce predetermined ISO test samples from various raw materials.

The modular system allows swift changes between geometries.

Testing procedure

ISO certified moulded test samples

The test samples are produced by means of injection moulding according to the client's specifications or datasheets of the material.

It is also possible to measure the mould pressure and temperature.

Testing applications

Injection moulding samples and corresponding tests

The inserts are multicavities, which means that for most of them 2 or 4 samples are injected per shot.

Insert ISO A: samples type 1A dumbbell

  • Tensile ISO527-2
  • Impact ISO179-1/2 (Charpy) or ISO180 (Izod) - centre part
