The L&W Tensile Tester is designed with attention to ergonomics and efficiency. A large table area makes it easy to manage test-pieces, the start button is placed near the test-piece input, and the easy-to-use color touch-screen has intuitive and easy accessible menus and buttons. The instrument has a well-proven clamp design - recommended by the ISO and TAPPI standards - with a cylindrical clamp holding the test-piece in place, and guides on each clamp that ensure the alignment of the test-piece. The clamps are also totally backlash-free, for precision measurements.
This new tensile tester is the perfect choice for automatic dry and wet tensile testing of tissue paper. With the fracture toughness setup, the L&W Tensile Tester can predict fracture strength and fracture strain for a two meter long and one meter wide paper web with a 10 millimeter edge cut, only by measuring on small standard test-pieces. This large paper geometry can be used for predicting and ranking of the fracture properties of paper materials.
"With L&W Tensile Tester we have made traditional quality testing very easy, but still with high precision and trust in result", says Mr. Thomas Fürst, Product Manager, Lorentzen & Wettre.
