Model AF-400 Automatic Foam Hardness Tester is designed and constructed to meet hardness test quality control standards for foam rubbers, urethane foams and various other plastic foams used as cushion materials for car seats, furniture and bedding.
A series of thumbwheel switches is used to quickly setup test conditions without complicated programming. The perforated sample bed allows air to escape, the ball joint on the pressure foot adjusts to angled surfaces and onboard dot matrix printer prints the test results for quick, simple operation
AF-400 measures both compression force and thickness. Minimum force reading 1N, Minimum thickness reading 0.1 mm.
The completely automated testing process compresses up to three preset percentages of sample thickness and measures force or compresses up to two preset force settings and measures thickness and records the measurement data in one procedure.
