FAQ TensileMill CNC

1.  What separates TensileMIll CNC Inc. from manufacturers for tensile preparation equipment?

In the world of specialized tensile sample preparation manufacturing, TensileMIll CNC is leading the market with the combination of a strong built tensile sample preparation CNC machine combined with the Tensile Soft, user-friendly software interface. Machine components and the controller are assembled and built in North America. The final inspection and troubleshooting takes place in one of our three locations. Tensile preparation has never been easier for a wide variety of materials, ranging from soft aluminum to super hard Inconel. View our full tensile test sample preparation line-up today to experience the difference in quality tensile sample preparation equipment.

2. How does the library of common standards work?

The library of common standards is accessible through the main TensileMill CNC interface. By simply clicking Library, you will be provided a list of standard ASTM, ISO, DIN and JIS specimen sizes. By selecting an option from the tensile library, the machine will be ready to prepare the specimen size selected. You also have the option of saving this specimen to your Quick Menu which allows you to easily re-access the same size directly from the main page of our TensileMill CNC interface.
