For markets as diverse as paper, plastic, nonwoven and textiles, ElmaTear is the only software driven Electronic Elmendorf tear tester that offers 1⁄4 A to E pendulums. This allows laboratories to increase their range of testing and attract additional business revenue.
Twenty pre-programmed standards, organised by material test type, can be easily selected from the main menu screen, with an option to add and edit standards. ElmaTear is further enhanced and supported by the easy to use PC based TestWise analysis software.
Two additional weights, suitable for testing lighter specimens such as paper, film, nonwovens and plastic, have been added to the ElmaTear. It is supplied with A, B, C, D and the new ½ A and ¼ A as standard. An optional weight E, for testing to 128N, can also be ordered. ¼ A is fitted to the instrument as standard. This range of weights means the user can test a wider variety of materials.
The animation on the left, which we have slowed down from actual speed, shows the transfer of energy through the pendulum action to tear the specimen.
The animation also shows the innovative rotary cam lock jaws which have increased clamping strength.
The introduction of this clear and uncluttered display makes the ElmaTear fast and responsive. It provides an intuitive experience for first time users.
An extensive list of pre-loaded standards, organised by sample type, are pre-defined within the instrument. There is the option to amend these and create new ones.
An investment in technology has resulted in increased blade efficiency, providing more accurate cutting, increased wear resistance and a longer life span.
The ElmaTear performs pendulum self-verification in one swing, a significant reduction in time on the previous model and other similar products in the market.
A two hand release mechanism ensures the user is clear of the pendulum swing, and the blade is covered by a safety guard for extra protection.
TestWise transfers results to a PC to be easily analysed, presenting them in a table and as a bar graph. They can then be printed or saved to PDF.
User error is kept to a minimum as the intelligent ElmaTear provides guidance and warnings throughout the testing process.
A protective mat around the base of the instrument protects it from laboratory wear and tear. This keeps the instrument in good condition, increasing it’s lifespan.
The comprehensive reporting function means that the length and width results from the same specimen can be seen at the same time.
