2016-04-19   WANCE

Wance successfully installed one 5000J pendulum impact testing machine for Nucor Steel Hertford Co. in USA. And it is the highest energy pendulum used in USA right now. This 5000J pendulum meets ASTM E604 - Standard Test Method for  Dynamic Tear Testing of Metallic Materials.  Nucor Corporation (NYSE: NUE) is one of the largest steel producers in the United States, and the largest of the "mini-mill" operators (those using electric arc furnaces to melt scrap steel, as opposed to companies operating integrated steel works with blast furnaces). Nucor claims to be North America's largest recycler of any material, recycling one ton of steel every two seconds.
