Z – Directional Tensile Tester by Thwing-Albert is a compact instrument that measures the internal ﬁne papers. Z-Directional force provides an indication of expected material performance relating to glue-bonding of carton corners. As well as the seams, delamination, and the use of high tack coatings. The ZDT Tester is a fully automatic that performs sample compression, dwell time and ZDT according to TAPPI T541. A self-adjusting test platen ensures uniform tension is applied to pull the sample apart.
Z – Directional Tensile Tester by Thwing-Albert’s utilizes cutting-edge technology. Thus, the test frame integrates all electronics and controls. Enabling the connection to a standard PC with a serial port is easy. this is because it does not require external control boxes or additional PC interface cards.
The ZDT Tester is only 250 mm (10 in) wide and 419 mm (16.5 in) deep. Therefore, it maximizes efﬁcient use of lab space. A magnetic test-control keypad is easily moved. This is to provide the most ergonomic positioning for the operator. Other beneﬁts include one-touch auto zero. Also, a software-based automatic calibration system.
ZDT application software, provided with the unit, utilizes MAP™. Which is a Windows®-based materials testing software package. It enables the user to quickly set- up test parameters including compression force, speed, dwell time and length of test. It also provides advanced capabilities for database management and reporting. Test comment ﬁelds allow the operator to enter information after the completion of the test. Thus, it indicates test failure or other pertinent details. ZDT software automatically writes result data to other software packages. For example, Access™ and Excel™.
