Universal Test Stand For Film And Paper

In the past, film and paper producers, and converters have had the choice of test stands and universal test machines which are either value-priced peak-force-only machines, or expensive computer-operated integral-load cell machines. Gardco offers the best of both worlds in a single instrument.

In the past, film and paper producers, and converters have had the choice of test stands and universal test machines which are either value-priced peak-force-only machines, or expensive computer-operated integral-load cell machines. Now you can have the best of both worlds in a single instrument. A simple to use computer operated tester, the Series MT-1500 offers Quality Control software for automatic calculation and graphical display of break, elongation, yield, modulus, and other, tension and compression force information.

The Series 1500 Precision Universal Test Stand is a proven tool for more closely controlling nominal and peak strength and elongation characteristics to speed your: Research and development of new film and paper products, Inspection of incoming film and paper products, In-process checks to ensure on-spec product for converting operations, and Quality-control reporting.
