Determines force, tensile resistance, elongation & tensile energy absorption in paper and tissue.

Applicable standards ISO 1924/1, ISO 1924/2, ISO 12625-9, UNE-EN ISO 12625-5, UNE-EN ISO 527-3, TAPPI T456, T494, T549, BS 4415/2, DIN 53 134, etc.

Easy operation touch screen and clear Start / Stop control buttons. Internal software has pre-installed tasks including standard 100mm tensile test for 15mm or 180 mm strips.

Manual clamps are supplied as standard with pneumatic clamps as optional. The maximum distance between the clamps is 300m, Test speed adjustable between 0.2 and 330mm/min.

RS 232 interface and USB port for maintenance work and printer connection.

Test description
The test is chosen on the touch screen. Clamps automatically move to the start position and the sample is clamped between the upper and lower clamp. On pushing the Start button, the upper clamp moves and the test sample is stretched until it breaks. The clamps automatically return to the start position after the test.

Force, elongation, curves, statistic with max, min, mean and the standard deviation are displayed on the touch screen and can be instantly printed.

Pre-installed with tests as described in the standards, company specific tests can also be added. All parameters such as testing speed, testing length, breaking- and preload levels can be adjusted individually.
