Mecmesin announces friction, peel, tear tester

03 April 2015

Leading testing instruments manufacturer Mecmesin has introduced the FPT-H1 horizontal friction peel and tear tester.

Designed for ease of use, it is supplied pre-programmed for all the main industry standard friction-testing methods for plastic films, paper and board. With additional fixtures for peel and tear testing, it is ideally suited to the packaging industry, and for manufacturers, converters and users of sheet materials.

The dynamic environment of sheet and web-fed production requires quick, accurate measurement of coefficients of friction. Machine speeds can only be optimised if tearing, jamming and misfeeds are prevented. The FPT-H1 fills an essential roll with an integral touch screen to access test routines, and guidance through each test. Testing requires minimal training with maximum repeatability.

For quality testing of labels, seals and closures, and the tear strength of perforations and sheet materials, the FPT-H1 offers flexibility and high throughput. Affordable for all users, it is robust and reliable in demanding test environments. Fully user programmable, the FPT-H1 is also ideally suited to detailed laboratory testing.

Optional features include an integrated sled lift with guide rail system to meet ISO 15359 (friction, paper and board), and a heated plane for ASTM D1894 (plastic films).
