The TMI Horizontal Tensile Tester Model 84-56 combines a modern contemporary look with a robust mechanical design and new improved electronics including a color touch screen and user-friendly interface. The menus are interactive and the large buttons are designed for easy access.
The main results given by TMI Horizontal Tester Model 84-56 are force, strain, strength, T.E.A and tensile stiffness including the rolling average of force and strain, are presented on the color touch screen after each test.
The new clamp design allows handling of test pieces up to 3 inches (75mm) wide, suitable for measuring paper tissue. To ensure that the test piece is perfectly aligned, different guides are available, which can be replaced by the operator if another test width is required.
As an option, the TMI Horizontal Tensile Tester Model 84-56 can be adapted for testing wet strength of paper tissue according to ISO 12625-5. There is a water container available that can be placed between the clamps. If the wet test option is selected in the menu, the software will allow the operator to select the soaking time in seconds. A sensor detects if the water container has been placed in position and the wet tensile test sequence automatically will be performed.
Tensile testing is the most widely used method for indicating the serviceability of many materials including Paper, Board, Tissue Paper and Non-wovens.
Tensile Energy Absorption (T.E.A.) indicates the durability of papers which are subjected to repetitive straining and stressing. The Horizontal Tensile Tester offers menu driven pre-selection of parameters and optical sample detection for effortless testing.
The tensile measurement aids in assessing the suitability of a product for its end use and close relationship between tensile strain and fiber bonding serve to make this a very important test.
