|Capacity of the load cell||20,000 N x 10 N|
|Speed of movement of platen||5mm/mint (for compression), 10mm/mint(for penetration)|
|Motor||½ HP single phase 230 volts AC|
Safety / protective footwear should give safety to the toe of the user under compression load and to the sole against nail penetration. Compression resistance is determined by subjecting the footwear to a specified compression load and measuring the clearance with the help of a modeling clay cylinder. Nail penetration resistance is measured by measuring maximum force required for a nail to penetrate through the sole.
