crosshead

[′krȯs‚hed]
(mechanical engineering)
A block sliding between guides and containing a wrist pin for the conversion of reciprocating to rotary motion, as in an engine or compressor.
(metallurgy)
A device generally employed in wire coating which is attached to the discharge end of the extruder cylinder; designed to facilitate extruding material at an angle.
(mining engineering)

The plan of the experiment is developed for assessing the influence of the weight fraction of silica, SBR, and crosshead speed.
Three crosshead speeds of 5, 30, and 60 mm/min were used to investigate the effect of straining rate on the resistance of the damage to fracture, characterized by the values of UTS, extension at break, and toughness (defined as the energy consumption during the test, i.e., the area under the load-displacement curve).
The toughening mechanisms were examined, and variations of fracture toughness with rubber content and crosshead rate were discussed.
