Launch of New Friction Tester

Lloyd Instruments has announced the launch of the FTPlus friction tester, a high accuracy, bench-mounted single lead screw instrument.

This dedicated instrument conforms to the requirements of the key friction testing standards and has applications in the food packaging industry.

The FTPlus can be used for measurements of static and kinetic co-efficients of friction, peak load and average load.

The FTPlus features a dedicated user interface for friction testing. Tests are set up from, and results displayed on, a backlit LCD integrated into the control console.

A high-resolution encoder is used to measure the sample extension and to provide

high-accuracy speed control.

The crosshead is driven by a high-precision servo-motor and DC servo system to achieve a wide range of speeds throughout the full load range. Three load cell options are available: 10N, 50N and 100N.
