Testing Machine Designed Specifically for Foam

The eXpert 5603F system includes everything required to perform the ASTM D3574 Indentation Force Deflection (IFD) test on urethane foam. The system is designed for the ASTM standard sample size of 16″ x 16″. Other systems in the eXpert 5603F series add capability to test wider samples as well as provide tensile and peel testing capability.

How the system works:

The system automatically measures the height of the sample at the pre-load force (typically set to 1 lbf). It will then compress to exactly to the pre-defined compression percentages (typically 25% IFD, 65% IFD, and return 25% IFD). The preflex cycle and dwell time can be enabled or disabled in the test procedure. After the test, an individual test report and grouped test report is available. All tests are automatically saved and are exportable to a .csv file. The test procedure is flexible and can be easily modified by the user. All parameters of the test can be defined: compression speed, compression percentages, pre-load force, number of compression cycles, dwell times for each hold, and initial preflex procedure.

Features:

  • Frame size for 16″ x 16″, 24″ x 24″, or larger samples
  • Software automatically performs tests to ASTM, ISO, or custom procedures
  • Perforated lower base platen and upper platen with swivel joint per ASTM standards

  • Load capacity up to 4.5kN
  • Frame size for 16″ x 16″, 24″ x 24″, or larger samples
  • Perforated lower base platen and upper platen with swivel joint per ASTM standards
  • Software automatically performs ASTM D3574 Indentation Force Deflection (IFD) test method
