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.

The University of Arizona’s Nutritional Sciences Food Lab acquired a Texture Analyzer from Food Technologies about 5 years ago. The company has a great product, which is tailored to food needs. 

We have used the Texture Analyzer for both research projects and as a tool to demonstrate to students how food manufacturers can employ objective testing in product evaluation to show how differing ingredients in the same product can affect quality attributes. Its use adds another dimension to the foods labs.

Drew Lambert has been instrumental in helping with set up for testing and providing support whenever there’s a question. He has been a pleasure to work with and is always accommodating with our needs and schedules.  He has even sent us special attachments for special projects.  We couldn’t ask for a better technical support.  Thanks for a great product and great service.
