Friction & Peel Testers - FT1

FT1 1kN / 225lbf - Benchtop Tensile Testing machine - Single Column
FT1 1kN / 225lbf
Peeltester & Friction Testing Machines

Self-contained Friction Tester

Conforms to international standards for friction testing including ASTM D 1894, ISO 8295 and TAPPI T549

» High Mechanical Stiffness

Modern linear guide technology, pre-loaded ball screws and advanced software compensation ensures high displacement precision

» Dedicated Interface

The console has a user interface dedicat­ed to performing friction tests, hereunder calculating static coefficient

of friction, kinetic coefficient of friction, peak and average load

» Wide Speed Range

High precision and improved productivity 0.01-2023 mm/min (0.0004-80 in/min)

» Exceptional Load Accuracy

Load accuracy of +/- 0.5% down to 1% of load cell value provides high dynamic range

» Scalable

The FT1 can also be configured and used as a 1 kN universal test machine with the appropriate grips and fixtures and by using our acclaimed NEXYGENPlus software. Coefficient of Friction, static and kinetic, is used in a variety of materials from lubricants, to films to household items (ceramic tiles) to determine the frictional characteristics of a material.

The FT1 is a bench mounted, single lead screw dedicated friction tester. A friction table is mounted directly on the machine, wi

th a full set of accessories included to perform tests conforming to the requirements of ASTM D1894, ISO 8295 and TAPPI T549. The tester includes these standards as user configurable tests, with a further seven available for user custom configuration. User configurable test screens allow for final movement limits, calculation limits (relative and absolute), sled weights and dimensions.
