Lloyd Instuments' FTPlus friction Ttster

Lloyd Instruments : 03 July, 2007  (Company News)
AMETEK S.A.S. is showing the Lloyd Instruments FTPlus friction tester, for the first time in France.
The FTPlus is a dedicated, high accuracy, bench-mounted single lead screw instrument, which conforms to the requirements of the key ASTM D1894, ISO 8295 and TAPPI T549 friction testing standards and has extensive applications in the packaging and printing industries. The FTPlus can be used for measurements of static and kinetic coefficients of friction, peak load and average load.

A friction table is mounted directly onto the machine, and is supplied with a full set of accessories to achieve the ASTM, ISO and TAPPI requirements. In addition to providing these standards as user configurable tests, a further seven tests are available for user custom configuration. The FTPlus features a dedicated user interface for friction testing. The machine may be programmed to perform up to 10 different tests and the statistics for each type of test are automatically calculated. Up to 600 samples can be stored in any of the test set-ups. Tests are set up from, and results displayed on, a backlit LCD integrated into the control console. User defined tests can be configured in terms of final movement limits, relative and absolute calculation limits, sled weights and dimensions.

A high-resolution encoder is used to measure the sample extension and to provide high accuracy speed control. The crosshead is driven by a high precision servo-motor and DC servo system to achieve a wide range of speeds throughout the full load range. Three XLC load cell options are available: 10N, 50N and 100N.

Although the FTPlus is fully self-contained, by simply fitting an RS232 interface to allow computer control using Lloyd Instrumentsí new NEXYGENPlus test and data analysis software, the instrument is transformed into a powerful universal materials testing machine suitable for performing tensile, compression flexure and other tests on a wide range of packaging materials, containers and package solutions. AMETEK S.A.S. also supplies the full range of Lloyd Instruments materials testing machines from 1 kN-300 kN.
