Automatic Cupping Tester

Efficiently assess the elasticity and cupping resistance of various coatings on metal substrates
Manufacturer: Bevs
SKU: CA-23100

The Automatic Cupping Tester offers advanced technology to efficiently assess the elasticity and cupping resistance of various coatings. With the integrated CCD camera, take photos or videos of the deformation process or result, and copy them to a USB stick. Use the touchscreen controls, or attach a mouse to the USB port to control the instrument. Download data onto a USB stick. Three testing modes are available: pass/fail with an adjustable preset depth; gradually increase indentation to define the minimum depth at which a coating fails; or create your own standardized test protocol to suit your company’s needs, varying speed and depth as required.
