Automatic Cupping Tester to perform a cupping (Erichsen / Dent) test on coated steel panels to define the resistance of paint, varnish or related products to cracking and/or detachment from a metal substrate when subjected to gradual deformation by indentation under standard conditions.
An integrated LED powered sample illumination system comforts examining the coating under test. To guarantee maximum visibility of all possible types of surface including high gloss, matte or colored samples the angle of the LED light can be set.
The CP 3000 Automatic Cupping Tester is driven by a micro-step controlled electric motor which allows precise and steady deformation with 0,01 mm steps. Operation is intuitive by means of a jog-dial switch and a multi-lingual operating menu on a large illuminated display.
Mandatory test in Qualicoat and QIB accredited laboratories
