TPE: Test stand for 90° peel tests with simple operation
The test stand TPE has been developed specifically for peel testing. Typically this involves pulling a bonded material layer from a base material (see diagram)
Safe reliable operation due to the crank
As a general rule the significant value in this process is the force required to pull away the top layer from bonded material
The TPE has been designed such that the force measuring unit exerting the force simultaneously moves sidewards and upwards. This means that a peel off movement is produced, avoiding shear forces which could distort the result.
The test unit moves at an angle of 45° to the horizontal. The force measurement device is fitted in an exact vertical position
Suitable for all force measuring devices up to 500 N (not included)
Travel distance per knob rotation (one stroke): 3,1 mm
