PROUDLY MADE BY
The IB800 laboratory testing machine has been designed to test the quality and mechanical characteristics of wood-based panels (particleboard, MDF, OSB, plywood and pallet blocks) and to then process the results obtained. The IB800 combines simplicity of use with safe and reliable operation thanks to a microprocessor which controls the data measurement process and file management. It comes complete with a set of accessories to conduct all the tests in full compliance with today’s standards (European standards, North American standards and others upon request).
The IBX800 version is available which is equipped with a device to measure density profile as well. The X-ray assembly consists essentially of an X-ray source and a receiver between which the sample is placed for the density profile analysis. The density profile sample-holder can hold several samples at the same time which are separated by spacers that come with the supply: the unit scans each sample automatically, hence facilitating the task of the operator.
The IB800 LABLOCK option is also available to carry out withdrawal and head pull-through resistance of pallet nails and staples (EN 12777-2) and Resistance of pallet joints (EN 12777-3) on pallet blocks.
Equipment to carry out the principal tests required by the CHEP standards (Chep TS-WP-BLOCK tine compression, Chep TS-WP-BLOCK nail insertion, Chep TS-WP-BLOCK nail pull/retention, Chep TS-WP-BLOCK tensile strength) may also be supplied upon request.
Tests performed in compliance with EN European standards:
Other tests for which it is possible to collect and store data in the IB800 database, in conjunction with other equipment:
It is possible to supply, upon request, the apparatus required for carrying out other EN tests (such as the EN314-1 for plywood for example) or tests in compliance with ASTM, NZS, JIS standards. Apparatus may also be supplied for some particular tests which, although they are not standard, are nevertheless required by some board manufacturers.
