CoupTest reviewed and corrected!

New version maintaining the performance of the former while adding usability and reliability.

Following a request supported many of our customers, we decided to develop a new version of our instrument for measuring cut resistance according to EN 388. We take into account the main demands of the market: affordable, the same as the original solicitation CoupTest used as a reference in many societies, ergonomically redesigned to users of our time ...

CoupTest QC  CoupTest de face   CoupTest de côté

We have integrated these two main demands to the specifications of this new version. These images syntheses have this new version, and show the paternity of the previous version to the overall size and some ergonomic features.

The main features of this new version are:

◊ identical dimensions (WxHxD): 356 x 225 x 424 mm.

◊ 2 support plates on the same sample frame saves time.

◊ drive the blade rotation and translation of the cutting head taken from the generation of I CoupTest system. The original system was modified in order to guarantee the same strength throughout the test.

◊ Maximum sample thickness 6 mm.

◊ Easy maintenance of the cutting head: a screw to remove the cover is lifted.

◊ 2 versions:

    • CoupTest 2 QC: one speed, one test mass
    • CoupTest 2 XP: the counter is replaced by an automatic test management, allowing inter alia, the change in the speed of testing.

◊ More protects blade design makes it unnecessary as inaccessible for the test.

◊ The blade replacement is easy, because the system can not be rotated when the instrument is off.

◊ The new generation CoupTest accepts all types of voltages and power frequencies, without modification or configuration.

◊ Quick installation of the test fabric and control fabric.

◊ 2 templates cut delivered.

    Ashland Training Day

    Three years ago, we moved into new larger premises more suited to our business. This new stage in the development of Material Engineering was the opportunity to invest in spaces (calibration laboratory, testing laboratory) for the reception and training of technicians and technical managers in optimal conditions.

    As such, we recently had the pleasure of receiving employees from several Ashland Group sites: Kehl in Germany, Porvoo in Finland and in France Pujaut. This visit was the opportunity to train these people to different types of rheological test (gel time, crosslinking) using a RheotechTR and to discuss the specific needs related to standards and internal methods used by Ashland. These discussions have also led to the development of new accessories and new software options (see our article on the latest development of RheotechTR).
