The COF tester has been manufactured to determine the static and kinetic friction of plastic film, sheeting and paper and other sheeted material. With the option of a computer software package to record the data, it is a fast, reliable and accurate means of determining friction in various areas of manufacturing.
The data acquisition software enables users to display their results in real time when it is linked to a PC. The latest upgrades allow users to alter the sled weights for R&D purposes. They can also choose whether the results are displayed in grams or COF results. Graphs can be scaled. When autoscaling is enabled, the force axis on the graph is automatically adjusted with regard to a particular test, without requiring any manual adjustment. Previous graphs can be opened using and test reports can be printed out.
