Model: C0055-M2

Our Coefficient of Friction Tester with Variable Speed is the latest model. The Coefficient of Friction Tester is fast, reliable and accurate in determining the coefficient of friction.

Our range of COF Testers determine the static and kinetic friction of plastic film, sheeting, paper and other sheet material coatings.  Our Coefficient of Friction Tester with Variable Speed has a small bench top design. Thus, makes it easy to use in a laboratory or setup out on the production floor for offline testing as needed.

The C0055-M2 model has all the same features as the C0055-M1 with the addition of variable speed from 50 – 300mm/min using a stepper motor for acuate variable speed control. Once a test is completed and the sample has been unloaded. The unit will return to the start point “HOME” ready for the next test. And controls are via an LCD touch screen for stop, start, home and speed changes.

This model guarantees maximum accuracy and precission.  And it comes with the option of computer software to record data – see Software.  Peel Testing can also be carried out on this unit.
