Tests are simple to select from the touch screen and the test cycle is automatic, with break detection prompting the return to the start position. Built on a sturdy frame.

Applicable standards
ISO 3035, ISO 3037, TAPPI, T808, T809, T811, T818, T821, T825, T839, FEFCO Nº 6-8 & 11, AFNOR 23035

Test Description
The sample to be tested is placed on the crush platens. Initiating the start button on the touch screen (or the separate start-button) the lower plate is moved with the selected speed (normally 12.5 mm/min) up to the higher platen. The sample between the platens is crushed, the necessary force for the test is registered and the curve is displayed on screen. After break detection the plate returns to the start position.
