FTC TM-2 Texture press

The TM-2 texture measurement system is the latest evolution of the legendary Kramer Shear Press.

TM-2 Texture Press is a rugged texture analyzer


The design is sealed against moisture so it can be placed right on the plant floor next to the production line. The TM-2 is maintenance free and is incredibly easy to use. Load the test cell and with the push of one button the system cycles through the test and displays the Peak Force results on an integrated display. The optional integral function automatically calculates the 'area under the curve' or work performed on the sample.

The texture gage can be set to read in metric or imperial units and the hydraulic press is capable of generating up to 3000 pounds (13,000 Newtons) of force in compression or tension for harder products. The TM-2 texture analyzer will accept the complete line of FTC test cell and load cells so it is versatile as well as rugged.
