Combination Flex Tester

The Combination Flex tester provides the ability to test either Newark (ASTM D2097) or Ford (BN 102-02) flex tests on one machine. The tester is typically used to test leather and vinyl materials. Up to seven (7) stations of either test type may be tested at one time. The technician loads the appropriate stations and sets the machine speed switch to begin a test.

The tester includes seven (7) stations with 1 inch (25.4 mm) diameter drums per Ford BN102-02, and 7 stations with 1.50 inch (38 mm) diameters drums per ASTM D 2097. It has a speed selection switch to operate at either 450 cycles per minute (CPM) for Ford, or 500 CPM for ASTM. The stroke is 12.7 mm for Ford, and 1.25 inch for ASTM. Note that only seven (7) stations are usable at any time due to the common operating speed for both sides.

The machine can be configured to meet the requirements of ISO 7854 Section B. Contact us for more detail.
