RDM HT-1XS Hot Tack Tester


HT-1XS Hot Tack Tester


Touch Screen Precision Hot Tack Tester for determination of the hot tack seal strength of flexible packaging materials, to ASTM F1921.


Precise control of hot tack seal process variables (temperature, pressure, and time), enables an optimal balance of material specification, packaging machine speed and seal integrity. Accuracy and repeatability in laboratory heat seal testing is vital, and the HT-1XS provides the technology and reliability to deliver time after time.


The HT-1XS seals and then immediately measures the peel strength of the hot seal. An intelligent controller and touch screen user interface provide test setting options, and allows multiple settings to be stored for later recall. Resulting graphs and data of load v time and load v temperature can be viewed, printed and exported to spreadsheets / SPC systems. Testing is performed in accordance with ASTM F1921.
