Test sample preparation tools are used for cutting specimens to the exact dimensions described in an ASTM standard. Specimen cutting dies can be used with a toggle press or a mallet handle. We offer dies for almost every ASTM standard. Some of the popular ASTM standards that require cutting dies include: ASTM D412, D624, D638, and D882. Please specify the ASTM and the specimen type if you’d like to order specimen cutting dies.
