The IDM Instruments' Mattress Compression tester is manufactured to evaluate the indentation force deflection (IFD) for use within the foam and mattress industries. Using a circular indentor foot, it determines the force required to deflect the test piece a percentage of its original thickness.
It is operated using an IDM software package, with features allowing programming of all parameters, operational control and real-time display of the on-going test.
The IDM software program also enables the Mattress Compression tester to be programmed with reference to various testing standards, including ISO, ASTM and AS. Once a testing procedure is entered into the software program, it can be saved and retrieved for later use.
The floor mount instrument enables easy mounting of any sized mattresses. Different sized indentor platens can be used to customise testing capabilities.
