Horizontal Tensile Tester (Wet and Dry)

The tensile machine with horizontal system is designed to calculate the paper tensile strength and elongation.

The horizontal tensile equipment is completely automatic in wet and dry paper tensile tests. Easy working tool due to the equipment automatism.

Highlights of our Horizontal Tensile Machine:
· It avoids mistakes in the sample placement and the elongation is more precise.
· Automatic detection of the sample.
· Pneumatic clamping.
· TEA value and complete statistics.
· Special tank for tensile tests in wet.
