This large angle (+/-15 degree) spherically-seated compression platen helps minimize errors from non parallel top and bottom specimen surfaces. These spherical seats, when added to rectangular compression platens, can be used to build self aligning rectangular compression platens that have top and bottom surfaces that are not completely parallel. They can be configured with test machine adapters to enable them to be used with virtually any test machine. The spherically seated platens accommodate up to 30 degrees of angular displacement of the top of the specimen with reference to the machine’s loading axis. They enable parallelism during specimen failure. See G36 compression platens which are not included, but needed.
