Hanatek Compact Coefficient of Friction Tester (COF Tester)

Hanatek Compact Coefficient of Friction Tester (COF Tester)

Manufactured by Hanatek Instruments

Revolutionary new design from Hanatek Instruments for measuring coefficient of friction (slip) of packaging, labels, plastics, finished goods, non-wovens and printed products. Helps assess runnability of products and packaging along high-speed production lines.

Compact Coefficient of Friction Tester (COF Tester) Key Features

  • Intuitive and easy testing, no or little operator training required
  • Determines Static and dynamic coefficient of friction
  • Touch sensitive button control
  • Easy and quick mechanical sample attachment to the sled and bed of the friction tester
  • Test parameters/methods for ISO, ASTM and TAPPI preloaded or easily set up your own bespoke test
  • Automated sled lowering system, this eliminates many of the operator errors associated with friction testing
  • Results printer option which exports COF static and dynamic, summary of test parameters used, date and time stamped
  • Space saving design this instrument can also be easily moved around the factory
  • No nonsense yet high quality cost effective design
  • Designed and manufactured in the U.K.
