  • Single channel vacuum table
  • Double channel vacuum table
  • Perforated
Smooth & multiple concurrent tests
  • Use up to 3 film applicators simultaneously
  • Test up to 2 Leneta test charts simultaneously
  • Able to test up to 2 test areas on perforated tables

The Elcometer 4340 Motorised Film Applicators are versatile, rugged and precise. The rigid construction ensures a smooth, consistent application without the ridges often associated with film application.

A range of applicator head attachments is available separately, allowing the user to select the most appropriate for their specific use and Standard (if applicable).

The Elcometer 4340 range of motorised Film Applicators comes as one universal base with user selectable head attachments - allowing the flexibility to test using standard film applicators (filmographs), spiral bar coaters, or using the combined attachment of both the film applicator and spiral bar attachment.

Available with a highly engineered table, available with or without a vacuum and heating element, each Elcometer Motorised Film Applicator is accurately measured using a Co-ordinate Measuring Machine to meet an incredibly high level of flatness.  (Vacuum tables offer more reproducibility).

The average variation on Elcometer Application Tables is 2.3µm (0.092mil), while the average variation on glass used on some low cost tables is 12.0µm (0.48mil).  
If a 100µm (4mils) coating is tested, readings taken using an Elcometer table would produce readings between 97.7 (3.9mils) and 102.3µm (4.1mils).  On glass, the readings produced would be between 88 (3.5mils) and 112µm (4.48mils) - a 47% variation.
