S0991 Carton Bend Test

This attachment, the S0991 is designed to test how card and paper folds, a small sample section is taken and placed under a retaining bar, this is then forced to fold using the fold bar at the back.

A rotary digital encoder measures the rotation angle and compares it to the force measured on the loadcell.

To ensure self-alignment cord is used to rotate the pulleys that move the folding bar.

Used in the packaging industry this compares how easy is is to open your box of cereal in the morning and to see how strong the folds are...
