Used to reduce the ver tical clearance between the compression platens, according to the height of the specimen to be tested, so to avoid the ram to make its max.excursion (approx.50-55 mm) without having compressed the specimen. The distance pieces are placed between the ram and the lower compression platen.
Distance pieces dia. 210 mm, finish-grinding, for “high stability” machines: 2000kN, 3000kN, 2000kN blocks and 3000kN blocks.
High 76 mm
