Testing Machines Inc. (TMI), an industrial physics company, announces the release of its improved coefficient of friction tester. The Model 32-76 uses digital force signaling and high-speed data acquisition software to provide precision and repeatability. The tester measures both static and kinetic coefficients of friction using the horizontal plane method.

Testing coefficient of friction and slip properties aids in the evaluation of chemicals and additives used to create, monitor or minimize the degree of friction between two contacting test specimens or surfaces. Applications include a broad range of printed, coated or treated surfaces, such as paper, packaging films, labels, and corrugated or non-woven materials.

Load cells on the Model 32-76 are interchangeable and include: 5N, 10N, 20N, 50N, and 100N; Speeds range from 5 to 43 cm per minute (2 to 17 inches per minute). According to the company new optional magnetic sleds eliminate taping sample to sled, reducing testing time. Features also include test method storage saving setup specifications, high-speed data collection capturing 500 readings during the static phase and directly interface with GraphMaster for data collection and curve analysis.
