Diapers have to offer a high tensile strength in order to be suitable to daily use. A universal testing machine of the type inspekt mini 3 kN from the Hegewald & Peschke MPT GmbH has been delivered for this purpose to the diaper manufacturer ABENA.
An extensive range of accessories has been provided, e.g. several clamping jaws as well as a graduator. This piece of equipment is required in order to carry out the tensile tests at the correct angle. In particular the tear-off flaps which are used to open and close the diapers shall be tested with the tensile tests.
ABENA is a Danish, family-owned company, founded in 1953. It manufactures and sells primarily health-care products.
