Finger Tip Abrasion Tester
The Schap Finger Tip Abrasion Tester simulates human contact upon a test article by applying a defined load over a defined stroke at a defined speed . Applied load is set with dead weight. “Scrub”, or abrading distance, is adjustable from 1 to 4 mm and is manually set to each specific test component by manually adjusting the height of the drive mechanism. Test applications vary widely and can be done on many different materials or components of various surface textures and / or contours. Chemo-mechanical abrasion testing can also be done on this unit by applying various liquids (i.e. artificial sweat, hydraulic oil, cleaning solutions, etc.) to the supplied test fabric. Number of cycles can be set via a pre -set counter mounted on the control panel.
This machine is supplied with a manual that includes operating procedures, replacement parts list, maintenance schedule , and set up instructions.
