Within one operational step, the HUST prepares 3 or 4 punched samples with a weight of approx.. 1 g. Different sample including rund samples with a diameter up to 40mm and thickness up to 4mm as well as double-thickness samples can be manually inserted and the punching process can be initiated.
The punched sample pieces are automatically transported to a collecting container where they can be taken from for further analysis.
Following procedures are possible:
- Removal of the pin for easy sample processing
- Punching from the sample tongue
- Sandblasting for surface cleaning
- Tongue heating using high frequency for punching of high- alloy steel grades
- Removal of the tongue
The HUST can be manually, automatically or semi-automatically operated. The HUST can be easily connected to other components of HERZOGSteel automation like, e.g., the HS-CF.
The machine is noise-insulated and especially designed for low-noise operation. Specific safety precautions allow the safe operation of the machine.
