Surface slip is a key factor when printing, erecting or filling packaging materials on an automatic line. Friction parameters help the manufacturer understand how the finish of a blown film or printed carton can influence the feeding and running speed. In addition to these values the CFT produces detailed force graphs that can be printed to date / time stamped label.
Features include a single touch button to initiate tests based on defined test parameters, automatic sled placement with variable dwell times to give more repeatable static slip results and graphical representation of forces during test. Static and dynamic COF results are displayed on screen immediately after test.
