FX-7000 & FX-7100 Full-Featured Tester for Film and Sheet Materials

Meets specifications of ASTM D1894 Standard Test Method for Static and Kinetic Coefficients of Friction of Plastic Film and TAPPI T-549.

Film Coefficient of Friction Testers
FX-7100 shown
In the past, film and sheet producers and converters have had the choice of off-line friction testers which are manually operated stand-alone machines, or expensive computer-operated machines. Now you can have both in a single instrument.

Features

top
Model FX-7000 COF Tester is a full-featured, simple to use analog-based (dial-type force gage) friction tester, a proven tool for more closely controlling nominal and peak friction with a fixed sled speed of 6 inches per minute. 500 gram force scale standard; other ranges available.

Model FX-7100 COF Tester (Pictured) is a full-featured digital-based (LCD-digital display force gage with integral keypad) Friction Tester which can be run as a stand-alone machine or a computer-assisted tester with optional FX-7200 Quality Control Software for automatic calculation and graphical display of static and kinetic friction data. Fixed sled speed of 6 inches per minute. 200 gram force scale standard; other ranges available.

Model FX-7100-VS COF Tester is the same as above but with variable speed sled with speed range from 1 to 20 inches per minute. 200 gram force scale standard; other ranges available.

Model FX-7100-VSC COF/Peel/Seal Tester is a full-featured digital-based (LCD-digital display force gage with integral keypad) dual-purpose Friction Tester which can be run as a stand-alone machine or a computer-assisted tester with optional FX-7200 Quality Control Software for automatic calculation and graphical display of static, kinetic friction, peel, seal and other test data. Variable speed sled, with speed range from 1 to 20 inches per minute. Reversible-direction motor allows higher force testing for COF, Peel, Seal and Tensile up to 45 lb (20 kg) force. 200 gram force scale standard; add a second force scale (optional) with measurement ranges including 500 gram, 1 kg, 2 kg, 5 kg or 20 kg for dual-purpose test capability. Manual mechanical grips included. Ideal for use with benchtop heat sealers for seal strength testing.

FX-7200 Quality Control Software for Model FX-7100, FX-7100-VS and FX-7100-VSC COF Testers. Wide range of statistical and graphical information including static coefficient of friction and kinetic coefficient of friction, with the ability to edit and define the field of data included in the kinetic friction calculation. Many application-specific functions make this an invaluable addition to your film, foil, converting or paper coefficient of friction tester.


Model FX-7100 F/W, a stand-alone digital-based tester with console-driven firmware for automatic calculation and display of Static and Kinetic COF values. Easy-to-Use Console Display of Static and Kinetic COF Values The FX-7100 F/W Friction Tester is a proven tool for measuring nominal (Kinetic) and peak (Static) friction values simultaneously:

Display Digital Console Display Showing Measured Kinetic and Static COF Values

In this example, reported Static Coefficient of Friction is .243, reported Kinetic Coefficient of Friction is 0.220.

Meets ASTM & TAPPI

Meets specifications of ASTM D1894 Standard Test Method for Static and Kinetic Coefficients of Friction of Plastic Film.

Advanced Technical Features in Each Model
Fixed sled speed of 6 inches per minute. Cutting templates available to reduce sample preparation times. Calibration tools available for in-house system calibration.
