An automated tear tester equipped with an optical encoder for measuring the angular position of the pendulum during tearing and converting this measurement to tear units. A large, full-color touchscreen display with intuitive, easy-to-use software provides a revolutionary new approach to testing and data review.
Elmendorf Tear testing determines the force required to continue the tearing of an initial cut in sheet materials such as paper, plastic film, textile and non-woven.
Simple, two-button operation of the pneumatic clamp and swing operations ensures efficient and repeatable results. A built-in cutting blade prepares samples for testing.
A universal pendulum with tool-less hardware and interchangeable weights provides multiple testing options. The required calibration weights are included in the set.
