Flexometer is used for the assessment of the flexing endurance of light leathers and their surface finishes. The ability of light leathers such as those used in shoe uppers, gloves and garments to withstand repeated flexing without cracking can be accurately determined with Flexometer. This testing equipment is built on a rigid metallic base plate. The test specimen is held between a pair of stationary and oscillating grips. The grips are specially designed to enable quick fixing and removal of the test specimen and are shaped to meet the specifications. A six digit even electronic counter with key reset and backup memory is provided to count the total number of flexing cycles undergone by the test specimens. The equipment is able to carry out a number of flex cycles per test.
