Test Description:

The test consists of puncturing a board sample with a triangular pyramid-shaped puncture head, which is fixed to a pendulum. The required energy for the puncture head to cross the sample completely is measured. This means, to do the initial puncture, tear and open the board.


Software Control (Optional):

The machine, through its RS-232 connection, allows the total control and management of the test, by means of the PTA NOVILOG Software. It will be possible to preset tests, save test results graphical curves, carry out test reports, etc.
