Inspection table

FKT 320.50
Leather inspection table with finger guard

To avoid expensive reworking, such as replacing leather parts on finished products, concealed grain faults can be clearly detected by stretching on this leather inspection table. The stretching force can be set precisely for the material to be tested, or built up by means of deliberate compressed air pulses. This procedure is particularly important with leather pieces that are processed or added while stretched. Often, faults are not seen until they are being inserted or even until the final inspection, and this then leads to considerable extra expense.

Operating principle

The operator places the leather piece for testing with open swivel jaws onto a movable curved test plate. The front finger guard housing is then manually closed by hand. At the same time, the rear finger guard closes. The rear and front swing frame is automatically closed. Inflatable tubes then press the leather piece against the press frame at a constant pressure on top and underneath. The movable test plate moves upwards pneumatically. The operator can now examine the leather piece that is clamped between the clamping positions for can grain or colour defects. The fault and the unusable areas are marked with a pen or chalk. After the test plate returns to the starting position the leather piece can be pulled through the depressurised tubes.
