Friction Tester delivers touchscreen operation.
February 18, 2010 -
Intended for use on various substrates, coatings, and production samples, Advanced Friction Tester (AFT) assesses characteristics that can be saved and compared at any time to let manufacturer specify optimum surface finish for any packaging process. In addition to friction parameters, such as surface slip, unit produces detailed force graphs that can be saved and compared. Optional attachments are available for measuring peel strength, blocking, and tearing of packaging materials.

Advanced Friction Tester
Versatile instrument - Repeatable Measurement - Easy to use
The Advanced Friction Tester produces detailed fingerprints of new substrates, coatings and production samples. These characteristics can be saved and compared at any time allowing the manufacturer to specify the optimum surface finish for any packaging process.
Surface slip is a key factor when printing, erecting or filling packaging materials on an automatic line. Friction parameters help the manufacturer understand how the finish of a blown film or printed carton can influence the feeding and running speed. In addition to these values the AFT produces detailed force graphs that can be saved and compared.
Optional attachments are available for the AFT that will measure peel strength, blocking and tearing of packaging materials. Measuring surface friction is important in many industries. The AFT can be used to measure many materials including plastic, textiles, leather, rubber and flooring.
SAVE AND COMPARE FRICTION PROFILES
Fingerprint, store and compare the slip of production items and laboratory samples. Output in force units (g/mN) and static/dynamic COF.
TOUCH SCREEN OPERATION FOR EASY, REPEATABLE MEASUREMENTS
Minimal training is required to produce high quality results that comply to international standards. Create new test procedures or work within default methods that comply to international standards.
AUTO SLED LOWERING WITH VARIABLE DWELL TIME
Make operator independent measurements within latest industry guidelines and standards.
