The 3 points bending fixture is used to determine the rigidity properties of hard products such as chocolate filled biscuit.
The chocolate filled biscuit is placed symmetrically on the 3 points bending fixture in order to apply the force in the middle of the sample. Then a few centimeters (2cm) compression is applied at 0.5mm/s to break the sample.
Using this device, variety of hard products can be analyzed. The adjustable bench allows you to characterize different types of chocolate stuffed biscuits with only one cell.
The TX-700 allows us to characterize the mechanical properties of chocolate stuffed biscuit. We can see that there is a difference in the required force to break the biscuit. With our tested brand, the high-end biscuit (Sample 1) is the stronger when the low-cost biscuit is more brittle.
The TX-700 is the suitable device to test the mechanical properties of hard product like chocolate stuffed biscuit.
