The FT1 is a 1 kN friction tester. It accurately measures the static and kinetic coefficient of friction. The device is used in packaging and printing industries. The values are important in many industries such as blown film, plastic sheet, paper and coating manufacture. The series conforms the reuirements of ASTM D1894, ISO 8295 and TAPPI T549. The device uses these standards on configurable tests available for custom configuration.
The FTPlus can be configured as a material tester to perform tensile, compression and other mechanical tests. The device uses a NEXYGENPlus material test and data analysis software.
The FT1 can be applied on pharma testing, packaging testing, electronic testing, rubber testing, automotive testing and construction materials testing.
