is based on Elmendorf method to measure tearing strength of plastic films, foils, textiles and non-woven materials.

 Principle

Lift the pendulum up to a certain height to give it an initial potential energy. The pendulum tears the specimen while swinging down. Computer calculates the decreased energy caused by tearing to obtain the required force for tearing.
