PLC Foam Fatigue

This Pneumatic Foam Fatigue tester is available in either a single-station bench-top version, or gantry style, capable of testing any location on mattresses ranging in size from single to king. It  meets the requirements of ASTM D 3574 -03 “Dynamic Fatigue Test by Constant Force Pounding” section. A PLC based controller works in tandem with a 500 lbf load cell and a signal conditioner to provide a constant cycle rate of 70 cycles per minute with a verified peak applied force of 750 Newtons (other sizes, rates, and peak forces available on request). 

A dual rod NFPA style cylinder is connected to the required 250 mm dia. foam indentor foot, which compresses the foam against the required grid of vent holes under the foam test sample. This tester is designed for testing standard square foam samples.
