prüfbau Drying Time Tester TZ 8

The prüfbau Drying Time Tester is designed to determine the absorption behaviour and drying time of inks on printed paper, carton, plastic or metal foils. Set-off characteristics of otherwise coated or laminated materials can also be tested.

The prüfbau Drying Time Tester is equipped with 8 test stations, arranged at equal distances from each other. Each station consists of one 25 mm wide pressure application roller and a corresponding roller.
Printed or laminated samples are placed with the printed side upwards, facing a plain set- off paper and run through the test station at a constant speed.

The wet ink film produces a 25 mm-wide set-off trace on the plain paper until the ink film is completely dry. The duration of the drying behaviour respectively the drying time can be determined by measuring the length of the set-off trace on the plain paper in relation to the pre-set rate of movement or track speed or can be evaluated using the prüfbau evaluation software Print Target.
Track speed can adjusted continuously from 1 cm/h until 200 cm/h.
