Film grips

Film gripsFTC offers specialty grips for securely locating samples under tension that are in the form of thin films or sheets.

The film grips secure flexible thin sheet, films or filaments, where conventional grips create stress points and so reduce tensile strength. Samples are wrapped around the drum spreading the load around the diameter. This fixture is rated to 500 N and the grips are supplied in pairs.

Nestle purchased a texture system from Food Technology Corporation in 2006. Since then I have recommended the texture system to several vendors in North and Central America. Staff at FTC was able to develop a simple training manual and procedure for the texture system allowing easy training in short period of time.

From purchasing of equipment through to installation and start-up, the level of personal care and service was remarkable. Shirl Lakeway and his staff at Food Technology Corporation are patient and understanding, and are always at our disposal for any assistance. Since we bought the equipment we have had no problems and feel very secure knowing that we can count on FTC for their support and service.

Our experience with FTC has been more than satisfactory, not only for the quality of the equipment you’ve got but for the post selling service that has proved to be excellent.

Any problem that we had, it took nothing more than a simple mail or phone call to have your immediate answer. We want to thank you very much for the quality of service provided.

I appreciate his commitment to our joint efforts and his open-minded approach. He and FTC have been exceptionally helpful.
