The 1270 PCA measures the force to open or bend paperboard and scored paper carton.
Use this fixture to measure score quality of corrugated containers according to TAPPI T829 when attached to the 1270 PCA Score Bend Tester or the EJA Vantage Series Universal Testing Machine.
The Taber Abrasion Tester is simple to operate, this instrument has been accepted worldwide as a standard for wear and abrasion research, quality and process control, materials evaluation, and product development. Taber Rotary Abrasers are capable of providing reliable data in a matter of minutes, compared to the years that may be required with in-use testing.
Two Models Available:
- Model 5135 - Single Platform Abraser
- Model 5155 - Dual Platform Abraser
The Regmed CT-21 Crush Tester is designed to perform standard TAPPI fiberboard tests such as Flat Crush, Edge Crush, Ring Crush and Pin Adhesion.
The Spencer Impact Attachment was developed for use with Thwing-Albert's Elmendorf Tear Tester.
The ProGage utilizes the most advanced technology to quickly and accurately measure the thickness of sheeted materials such as paper, plastic film, tissue and toweling, nonwovens, and textiles.
This Coefficient of Friction Tester (COF) / Peel Tester can measure static and kinetic coefficient of friction as well as run seal strength tests, 180° peel, 90° peel, and T-peel tests. The FP-2260 also offers a tensile test mode to perform lightweight tensile tests up to 10 kg (22 lbf).
Its small bench top design makes the FP-2260 light weight allowing it to be used in a laboratory or setup out on the production floor for offline testing as needed.
Plastic film, paper, paperboard, adhesives, labels and packaging materials are ideally tested with the FP-2260.
Replaces the FP-2255.
The heated platen allows for testing at elevated temperatures. Ideal for plastic film testing. Its small bench top design makes the FP-2260 light weight allowing it to be used in a laboratory or setup out on the production floor for offline testing as needed.
Temperature range from:
(70F to 350F)
Plastic film, adhesives, labels and packaging materials are ideally tested with the FP-2260 heated platen option.
