Ford Flex Tester


 Ford Flex Tester

The Ford Flex Tester is used for evaluating a fabric or leather's resistance to flexing fatigue. It is a bench top machine with fourteen test stations. Each station includes suitable clamps for attaching the test samples after they are rolled up.

The operator loads as many stations as are desired by rolling each sample around the mounting barrels at either end and attaching them with the screw clamps provided. Note that the stations being loaded must be at full stroke. The desired number of test cycles is then entered on the cycle counter and the test is started.

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