The 7i Professional Force/Torque Indicator is designed to work with a wide range of Mark-10 remote force and torque sensors. With exclusive Plug & TestTM technology, all calibration and configuration data is saved within the sensor’s smart connector, not the indicator, allowing for true interchangeability. In addition, all sensors are fully compatible with other Mark-10 indicators.

The 7i features an industry-leading sampling rate of 14,000 Hz, producing reliable results for extremely quick- action tests. In addition to the 5i indicator’s functions, the 7i features high-speed continuous data capture and storage, with memory for up to 5,000 readings, at an acquisition rate of up to 14,000 Hz. The 7i Professional Force/Torque Indicator also features programmable footswitch sequencing, break detection, and 1st / 2nd peak detection. Coefficient of friction unit of measurement and a user-defined unit of measurement add flexibility for specialized applications. For productivity enhancement, the indicator also features automatic data output, data storage, and zeroing functions upon the completion of break detection,  averaging external trigger, and 1st / 2nd peak detection.

The 7i interfaces with Mark-10 test stands to permit functions such as break testing, dynamic load holding, PC control capability, and more. The included MESURTM Lite data acquisition software tabulates continuous or single point data.  Data saved in the indicator’s memory can also be downloaded in bulk.  One-click export to  Excel easily allows for further data manipulation.

The Crease & Stiffness Tester is used to test carton board, paper, printing and packaging materials. These are important measures to have correct and
uniform. As board stiffness and crease recovery (spring back) is important in the performance of cartons on high-speed packaging machines and when manual folding. The value of crease stiffness is technically important in the folding of carton blanks during their erection and closure.

The crease recovery (spring back) can result in forces, which distort the erected carton or cause stresses to be applied to closures, which reduce their effectiveness. Crease recovery is determined by the decrease in the resistance offered by the creased board after it is folded 90° at the crease measuring the recovery force after 15 secs. Board Stiffness is determined by bending a 50mm length of the board through a 15° angle.

The CF800-XS Precision Friction Tester determines Static and Kinetic Friction of packaging materials to ASTM, BS, ISO and TAPPI standards.

Accuracy and versatility in testing is vital, and the CF800-XS Precision Friction Tester provides the technology and range of options to deliver for your specific needs. An intelligent controller and touchscreen user interface stores multiple settings for later recall and controls settings to ensure calibrated accuracy to international testing standards.

The successful processing of flexible films or paper and board is largely dependent on the correct coating of ‘SLIP’ additives applied to the material. The successful forming of the material requires easy sliding or flow over formers on the packaging machine where at high-speed acute angles can change the direction of flow to produce a tube or pouch. The application of ink on the film will cause the properties of slip to change, therefore the need to measure and control Coefficient of Friction is paramount.

With features like:

  • 5.7″ touchscreen controller for precise control and measurement of force, distance, and speed
  • Memory recipe function for a quick and accurate recall of settings
  • Vacuum suction across the test bed for fast clamping of test material
  • Optional heated test bed for determination of ‘Hot Slip’ values.
