IDM Instruments manufacture the Gelbo Flex Tester to inspect certain laminations of plastic film that can withstand repetitive strains.
A plastic film which has laminations or layers is subjected to twisting on the Gelbo Flex Tester, for a set number of cycles.
After the completion of pre-determined cycles, the sample is checked to see whether visual results show signs of de-lamination or pin-holding.
Gelbo Flex Tester is an easy to use instrument that has a basic counter setting operation and can check results taken from visual readings.
Plastic film manufacturers in the food and confectionery industry can benefit from using the Gelbo Flex Tester on their product line and see how well the packaged product withstands the repetitive handling and distribution process.
