Gurley Bending stiffness tester - Model 4171S

The Bending stiffness tester Gurley - Model 4171S measures the force required to bend a variety of materials under controlled and repeatable conditions. This force may be equated to stiffness,resilience, flexibility or pliability depending on the nature of the materials and purpose of the test. This digital bending resistance/stiffness tester can be equipped with a parallel clamp and tubing clamp and connects to a computer via RS-232.

Application: Paper & Pulp, Cardboard
