Rhopoint Universal Friction Tester
Manufactured by Rhopoint Instruments
Friction testing is used in the packaging industry to measure the slip resistance of a product, with the aim of predicting feed and running speed on an automatic glueing, erecting, filling or packaging line.
The Rhopoint universal friction tester offers:
Optional full analysis software allows for detailed statistical and graphical analysis of results, full PDF reporting and the creation of custom test routines.
The Universal friction tester allows the user to test static and dynamic coefficient of friction with minimal training. Ultra-repeatable static COF; automatic sled placement with variable dwell times.
A fixed link between the sled and the load cell means that there are no errors in friction from pulley wheels or cords associated with other measuring instruments.
The UFT uses an intuitive touch screen user interface making it accessible and easy to use.
Pre-loaded ISO/ASTM/friction test methods with the option to create a custom test.
