  1. 733K Pneumatic Grips

    733K Pneumatic Grips (500 N, 100 lbf)

    The 733K tensile grips are back and designed to hold pulp handsheets, paper and paperboards, plastic films and other sheet materials for tensile testing.


  2. Sample Vacuum Opening Force Test

    Vacuum Opening Force Fixture

    The Vacuum Opening Force Fixture is designed to test the force required to open folding cartons or boxes.  This simulates opening a folded carton or box during the filling process on the production line.  A system of an upper and lower fixture fitted with vacuum pumps are used to convert compressed air flow to suction. 

    Ideal Material Applications:
    - Folding Cartons
    - Boxes
    - Paperboard

    The Vacuum Fixture can be adapted to test peel/seal strength of lids and films from cups and trays. Using the vacuum base hold the sample in place and upper grip to peel/pull the film or lid. This can be used across many packaging applications primarily for food and medical packaging.


  3. Handle Strength Test

    Handle Strength Fixture

    This fixture was designed to test overall strength of a reinforced handle on a plastic bag.  The fixture simulates a hand holding the sample and the test measures the breaking point to evaluate pass/fail conditions. The handle can also easily be replaced with different size/shape hooks for various pull strength or peel strength tests.

    • Bag Handles(plastic/paper) Strength
    • Bag/pouch Hole Punch strength
    • Lid/Tray Removal Force
    • Peel
    • Custom application


  4. Score Quality TAPPI T829

    Score Quality Fixture

    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.


  5. ASTM D3354 - Blocking Fixture from Thwing-Albert

    Film Blocking Test Fixture for ASTM D3354

    This fixture is used to meet ASTM D3354 Blocking Testing of Plastic Film.


  6. 90 Degree Peel for Vantage Series

  9. zdt test 50mm (2in) sample

    Vantage Z-Directional Tensile Tester

    Thwing-Albert's Vantage ZDT Tester is a compact, precision computer controlled instrument that measures the internal fiber bond strength of paper, paperboard, liner board and coated fine papers.  Z-Directional force provides an indication of expected material performance relating to glue-bonding of carton corners and seams, delamination, and the use of high tack coatings. 

    - Fully automated instrument that performs sample compression, dwell time and ZDT

    - The self-adjusting test platen ensures uniform tension is applied to pull the sample apart

    - Adheres to Industry Standards: TAPPI T541 & ISO 15754



  10. Vantage Compression Tester

    Vantage Compression Tester/Softness/Tissue Tester

    • The Vantage Compression/Softness Tester is a compact, PC-controlled instrument that provides an objective measure of material softness by evaluating sample loft, thickness, compressibility and structural softness
    • Ideal for sheet materials including paper tissue, toweling, nonwovens and textiles.
