Product Description


The Hanatek AFT Advanced Friction tester is the most comprehensive tool available for measuring the coefficient of friction of plastic film, printed cartons, packaging substrates or paper. This flexible instrument can also be used to measure and display the frictional values of any flat surface including rubber, flooring plastics textile and leather.

In addition to providing dynamic and surface slip values for a surface, the instrument allows the full friction force output to be displayed, stored and compared. This unique ability helps a manufacturer to relate the feeding and running speeds of a product to its surface characteristics.The instrument is available with optional extras to measure peel strength of adhesives, tear strength of substrates and the blocking of plastic films and coated cartons.

Advanced Friction Tester produces detailed fingerprints of new substrates, coatings and production samples. These characteristics can be saved and compared at any time allowing the manufacturer specify the optimum surface finish for any packaging process.

Surface slip is a key factor when printing, erecting or filling packaging materials on an automatic line. Friction parameters help the manufacturer understand how the finish of a blown film or printed carton can influence the feeding and running speed. In addition to these values the AFT produces detailed force graphs that that can be saved and compared.

Optional attachments are available for the AFT that will measure peel strength, blocking, and tearing of packaging materials. Measuring surface friction is important in many industries, the AFT can be used to measure many materials including plastic, textiles, leather, rubber and flooring.
