What are the various types of consumables available for my TensileTurn CNC machines?
The sub-name TensileTurn refers to our series of round specimen preparation machines. Each of these units comes standard with our custom holders and inserts designated for your specific material needs.
Similarly to our flat sample preparation machines, the TensileTurns require coolant fluid and a lubricant. The only consumables required for this series of equipment is the holders and inserts. While the holders may last for many years, depending on unit?s maintenance, the inserts have a relatively shorter span life. Rigorous experimentation is the reason our inserts are custom designed to outlast the competition.

When would I require to update a clamping fixture for my base fixture?
The clamping fixtures don't require an "update" as much as an upgrade. When your starting blank specimen sizes move up or down in length, a specialty clamping fixture is required to firmly secure the sample in place ensuring accuracy during the milling process. Additional clamping fixtures can be acquired by submitting your request or calling us today.
What are the various types of base fixtures that you offer for tensile preparation?
Flat tensile mill CNC machines come standard with a turnkey package which includes the base fixture, clamping fixtures, ER collet and Endmills. The base fixtures generally last for decades to come. They are stainless steel and designed uniquely to accommodate your specific ASTM, ISO, JIS, and DIN standards. The clamping fixtures are sometimes needed when additional length of starting blank specimen are required to be milled. We have you covered for various sizes ranging from 15" down to 4".
The endmills are the only consumables we suggest keeping in stock. TensileMill CNC Inc. offers specialty carbide endmills with unique coatings custom designed for your tensile sample preparation machines. Depending on the overall volume, hardness, and thickness of your samples a single endmill can be of service from a number of week to a number of months.
