People may ask what a COF tester, otherwise known as a coefficient of friction tester, is and why it is important.  A simple explanation of a COF tester is a machine that takes a measurement of a material and determines the angle of incline at which one material when affixed to a sled will begin to slide or slip against another similar material.  This testing can help determine the static and kinetic friction of a material.  This can help a company choose the best material for their packaging.  This testing can be time-consuming and Peak innovations Engineering can perform this testing to free up companies in house engineers for other projects.
