C0055-M2

Replacing the previous C0008 series is IDM's updated C0055 series Coefficient of Friction Testers.

Model C0055-M2 COF Tester supersedes model C0008-VS

 IDM’s Coefficient of Friction Testers have proven to be a fast, reliable and accurate method of determining coefficient of friction.  Our range of COF Testers are used to determine the static and kinetic friction  of plastic film, sheeting, paper and other sheeted material coatings.  Their small bench top design makes it easy to use in a  laboratory or setup out on the production floor for offline testing as needed.

The C0055-M2 model has all the same features as the C0055-M1 with the addition of variable speed from 50 – 300mm/min using a stepper motor for acuate variable speed control. Once a test is completed and the sample has been unloaded, the unit will return to the start point “HOME” ready for the next test. Controls are via an LCD touch screen for stop, start, home and speed changes. This model is the next level in accurate and precise COF measurement for static and kinetic results and comes with the option of computer software to record data – see Software..  Peel Testing can also be carried out on this unit.
