PaperSchmidt, Equotip 550 Leeb U, and RQ8000 Roll Hardness Testers

Person takes measurement with Proceq Equotip Leeb U Roll Hardness tester

Fast and reliable hardness testing of paper, film, foil, textile, cardboard and leather rolls

Out of round rolls and other defects such as corrugations caused by non-uniform roll hardness profiles are a major cause of lost production for both producers and converters alike. A reliable measurement of the roll hardness profile is of critical importance in deciding whether a roll is good or bad. Proceq’s instruments give the production staff the support they need to quickly and reliably test the roll hardness and to interpret the results as efficiently as possible. It enables the user to quickly and precisely diagnose roll imperfections, hardness inconsistencies and uneven winding, thereby preventing problems for printing and converting operations.

Description
Description

The Equotip 550 Leeb U is the successor of the Parotester and perfectly suited for large rolls, thin foils and films. The new generation touchscreen offers an elaborate interface designed by industry experts for increased efficiency and an exceptional user experience. The enhanced software provides many helpful functions such as wizards and custom reporting. 

Description

The PaperSchmidt is the first integrated rebound hammer designed specifically for the testing of roll profiles. It features high accuracy and repeatability and delivers instantly all key parameters required for assessing the roll quality. The PaperSchmidt has an extended lifetime to cope with the heavy demands of the paper industry. 

Description

The RQ8000 is a fully automatic hardness profiler that detects even the smallest defects with unmatched measurement precision and speed, suitable for even most delicate and complex materials. A fully automated measurement procedure eliminates the user experience issue - always delivering consistent results. This device helps you to not only avoid the runnability problems, but to gain significant savings and customers' satisfaction.
