StrainScope® S4/20 cord tester

The revised version of the proven StrainScope S4/20 cord tester for the objective measurement of cord stresses in container glass offers a significantly increased resolution for better detection of very fine cords. The newly developed sample holder with rotary table and height adjustment simplifies handling and thus makes the measurement even faster.
