Sample Presentation

sample presentation fixtureThe way in which a sample is held or presented will directly influence the accuracy of results generated. Forces are commonly manipulated with test accessories to replicate consumer handling or consumption. It is also important to secure or present the sample to the instrument as reproducibly as possible.

The FTC sample presentation fixtures are specifically designed to accommodate irregular shaped samples or containers. These fixtures prevent sample movement during testing, allowing accurate calculation of characteristics, such as adhesiveness, where it is critical that the sample remains firmly in place during the return stroke of the texture analyzer.

Once set up, the technologist can simply test sample after sample with the guarantee of central alignment between test probe and product.

The TMS mini vice grip and 3-point bend fixture is also available for presenting small samples, such as tablets, for snap or penetration tests.

I have found FTC to be an excellent partner for our company. In particular, it has been especially gratifying to work with Shirl Lakeway. Both creative and accommodating, he worked very hard with us to develop our projects.

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

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.
