The Hanatek FT3 Precision Thickness Gauge is specifically designed to quickly and accurately measure the thickness of a variety of substrates including film, paper, board, foil, tissue and textiles.

 

The Hanatek Variable Force Precision Thickness Gauge FT3-V is specifically designed to quickly and accurately measure the thickness of a variety of substrates including film, paper, board, foil, tissue and textiles.

 

The Hanatek Rub and Abrasion tester brings new levels of repeatability and convenience to testing the durability of inks and coatings on any printed material. The instrument is used for testing the scuff, marking and rub resistance of cartons, films and commercial printed material.

The Hanatek Advanced Friction tester is the most comprehensive tool available for measuring the coefficient of friction of plastic film, printed cartons, packaging substrates or paper. This flexible instrument can also be used to measure and display the frictional values of any flat surface including rubber, flooring plastics textile and leather. In addition to providing static and dynamic slip values for a surface, the instrument allows the full friction force output to be displayed, stored and compared. This unique ability helps a manufacturer to relate the feeding and running speeds of a product to its surface characterisitcs. The instrument is availabe with optional extras to measure peel strength of adhesives, tear strength of substrates and the blocking of plastic films and coated cartons.

The CBT1 Crease & Board Stiffness Tester measures both carton crease recovery and board stiffness to many international standards including BS6965 and PMI 068.

Measurement of these parameters gives carton board manufacturers, printers and packaging companies the ability to predict the 'run-ability' of a sample board or finished carton before committing valuable materials or machine time.

Board stiffness and crease recovery are key characteristics that affect the running performance of cartons on high speed packaging machines.
