Slip and Friction Tester

Introduction

The Slip and Friction Tester is designed to measure the sliding resistance of sheet like materials including plastic film, packaging film laminates, paper, paperboard and coated surfaces.

For over 30 years, Testing Machines, Inc. has had a history of producing reliable, accurate and robust testing instruments for measuring coefficient of friction. The model 32-07 is our latest design offering advanced features for measuring and automatically calculating static and kinetic coefficient of friction.

49-86 Digital Micrometer

The NEW model 49-86 Digital Micrometer combines a precision digital linear encoder measuring system with an ultra-clear, easy-to-read digital display. The unit has a measurement range of range: 0-0.050 in. (0-1.27 mm) and designed for very thin materials such as thin plastic films, paper, non-woven, textiles board and battery separators non-woven The motor-driven instrument utilizes the dead weight micrometer principle for high accuracy and repeatability. Each unit is designed and manufactured for use where the utmost precision is required.

Parker Print Surf

Developed from Dr. John Parker's original method, the Parker Print-Surf (PPS) is designed to accurately measure the surface roughness of sheet materials under conditions similar to those experienced during the printing process. The sample is clamped between a precision engineered measuring head and a specifically designed backing assembly. It provides the information you need to avoid time-consuming, costly printing problems.

Krebs Viscometer

Features

  • Range: 54-140 KU (75-1000 g.)
  • Sturdy mechanical assembly & easy maintenance
  • Easy to read speed indication
  • Good value for money
  • Standard package: Viscometer, paddle rotor,
  • 1 pint (500 ml) / Ø85 mm can,
  • Set of 7 weights (2 x 5g, 1 x 10g, 1 x 25g, 1 x 50g, 2 x 100g,
  • 1 x 200g, 1 x 500g), AC/DC 12V adapter (for digital version)


Information

This traditional KREBS viscometry instrument uses a rotating paddle driven by falling weights to determine the paint viscosity. The viscosity value in Krebs units can be easily converted using the table supplied or by calculation by formula from the resultant value of total weight required to reach 200 rpm.

The robust and simple construction of this viscometer allows it to be used in various environments.
2 versions available: with tachometer or with stroboscope.

Digital Rotothinner™

Features

  • Quick release chuck for rapid rotor change and cleaning
  • Multipoint calibration
  • Remote calibration key for extra security
  • Storage facility and RS232 output for printer


Information

The Rotothinner instrument uses a disc or ball shaped rotor to determine the viscosity of the sample under test. The results are displayed on the LCD screen in POISE units.

Rotothinners allow the operator to continuously monitor the samples viscosity whilst a solvent or thinner is added. This allows quick correction factors for use in the production batch when carried out quantitatively.

The viscosity is measured using a high quality microprocessor controlled DC motor. The robust construction of the Rotothinners means that they are suitable for use as both production and laboratory instruments. Supplied with a 250ml sample tin.

Flow Cups

Flow cups, originally designed to perform quick viscosity and consistency evaluations of Newtonian or near non-Newtonian products, can provide a high degree of accuracy and repeatability depending on the quality of their manufacture.

Our flow cups are manufactured in accordance with International Standards which not only specify the close dimensional tolerances required during the process but also their use and recording of data obtained.

With our long established experience in the manufacture of these types of products, Sheen flow cups offer outstanding testing quality. They are produced from selected high grade materials, with the latest computerised machining technology under stringent quality control conditions. A smooth, bright finish makes them easy to use and clean for a long lasting operating life.

Conformance certificates are included with all our flow cups to the relevant National Standard. Calibration certificates according to calculation data given by the relevant standard, or to internal comparative procedures are available upon request when ordering.

To ensure optimal accuracy of your testing results, a periodic calibration check of your cups is strongly recommended, either by our own calibration department, or alternatively by using our range of standardised calibration oils.
