The Coefficient of Friction Tester designed and manufactured by IDM Instruments measures both static and kinetic coefficient of friction of sheeted material, including paper, plastic, film and other sheeted material.
The tester can measure static COF from a resting position, and as it continues to move in a relative motion, it can also give a kinetic COF result. Results can be taken from the instrument itself, with reading read through the force gauge, and COF values obtained from the COF chart or it can be coupled to a PC, running the IDM COF Data Acquisition Software.
The Data Acquisition Software provides in depth statistical analysis of the COF test results as a graph and chart. All test results can be further analysed on the software program, and test results can be printed out or saved for data collection or for later use.
The simple to use IDM Coefficient of Friction Tester provides users with the benefit of monitoring their COF values on their product line for quality and in turn helping to reduce their production costs.
