IDM’s Foam Resilience Tester determines the resilience of flexible cellular polyurethane. A steel ball is dropped vertically on to a test piece and the rebound height measured and expressed as a percentage of the height dropped.
The F0030-M1 is an economical resilience tester, where the steel ball is mechanically dropped, and the rebound result is captured by eye against the scale.
The F0030-M2 is a full digital model where once the ball is dropped the result is automatically captured on the touch screen, with the advantages of great repeatability, digital test results, statistical data and a USB port for exporting.
The Digital Foam Resilience Tester uses an electronic sensor to detect the impact of the steel ball on the foam sample. Using data from the repeated impact, the IDM Software calculates the rebound value. After each test, the rebound value is displayed on the touch screen.
