Optical Comparator – used for intricate measurement of grooves (notches) and a variety of other precision machined shapes. An optical comparator (often called just a comparator in context) or profile projector is a device that applies the principles of optics to the inspection of machined parts.
Chevron Notch Cut Into a Ceramic Material Bar
Machined per ASTM C 1421 standards. This photo illustrates the actual Chevron-Notch we machine into a bar. This is a Standard Test Method of Fracture Toughness of Advanced Ceramics.
“CHEVRON” refers to the actual shape of the notch after machining.
We follow the ASTM C1421 standard.
Yes, we can do that.
I am preparing technical ceramics (carbides) for characterization of fracture toughness according to ASTM C1421. Is Bomas able to cut and machine to the coupon dimensions needed for the test, followed by the Chevron‐notched creation, assuming a block of 50x50x20mm of ceramic is provided?
Yes. Our services commonly include several machining requirements on the same specimen.
