Taber Stiffness Testers Model 150-B

Model 150-B
Taber Stiffness Testers Model 150-E

Model 150-E


The Taber Stiffness Testers are used to measure the stiffness, rigidity (resistance to bending) and resiliency of flexible materials from 0.004" to 0.219" thick. There is an manual and automated version available depending on your testing needs. Meets Appita P 431, ASTM D5342, ASTM D5650, ISO 2493, JIS P 8125, Tappi T 489, Tappi T 566, UNE 57-075, CPPS D 28P, BS-3748



 

Features

  • The Taber V-5 Stiffness Tester is used to evaluate stiffness and resiliency properties of materials up to 10,000 Taber Stiffness Units.
  • This precision instrument provides accurate test measurement to ±1.0% for specimens 0.004" to 0.219" thickness.
  • Materials include paper products, cardboard, plastics, metals, textiles, rubber, wire, tubing, felts and other sheet materials.
  • 150-B - Based on the original Taber Stiffness Tester, Model 150-B requires the user to record stiffness testing data, average the readings and multiply results by a scaling factor.
    • The user manually operates the pendulum deflection by a lever control switch.
    • A dynamic brake holds the pendulum in position enabling the operator to capture the unit scale reading.
    • Mounted on tripod legs, this instrument is lightweight for easy portability.
  • 150-E - The onboard computer automatically calculates and records stiffness testing data (average, standard deviation, high/low, date and a user-defined label), and converts stiffness readings to the appropriate user selected stiffness range.
    • A high resolution optical encoder and a non-contacting photo sensor are incorporated to make the Model 150-E fully automatic.
    • Data can be either printed or downloaded to a PC.
    • Up to 1,000 readings can be stored in non-volatile memory.
    • The instrument also offers the ability to perform testing in auto or manual mode.
