Self-aligning compression plates are designed to adjust to angular displacement of the material being tested.
One Self-aligning compression plates is usually used along with a fixed compression plate.
These plates can also be fixed to an angle by tightening the nuts.
Adapters are available to mount platens to almost any test stand.
Round, square and rectangular compression plates are also available.
Scope of delivery is 1 compression plate.
