Messmer Büchel Parker Print-Surf (Single Head) 58-06

When you need to measure the surface roughness of anything from fine paper to films and foils, you’ll find all you need wrapped up in the Parker Print surface roughness tester. 


Brought to you by Messmer Büchel, our paper testing specialist brand, this industry-leading surface roughness tester inspects your samples according to the Dr. John Parker method.  

The data collected from our surface roughness tester shows you how much ink to use and the way it should be applied. This helps you to avoid costly, time-consuming printing problems. 

High-speed surface roughness testing

It features high-speed pressure settings that simulate the application of ink during the printing process. So it’s the ideal choice for measuring surface roughness and avoiding print problems. 

The clamp pressure is adjustable, making it possible to simulate different print settings.  

Multi-material surface roughness testing

Our surface roughness tester can be used for a wide range of materials. This includes fine paper, coated paper, newsprint, coated board, liner board, films and foils, packaging and carton board.  

Surface roughness and porosity testing

The PPS roughness tester can be used to measure both surface roughness and porosity. It quickly tests both upper and lower sides of your samples.. You get a roughness head fixture as standard on the 58-0 model and an optional porosity head can be added at any time.  

Parker print surf – clamping pressure

A custom pressure field can be set with an open range from 100 to 5,000kPa. 

Parker print surf – roughness calibration check

Our surface roughness tester comes with a calibrated dummy head to check the calibration of the instrument.

Surface roughness standards 

Our surface roughness tester meets a number of international standards including: ISO 8791/4, ISO 5636/1 and TAPPI T-555. 

Surface roughness testing choices

We make a range of surface roughness testers and accessories. Check out the PROFILE/Plus® PPS or the PROFILE/Plus PPS (parker print surf) calibrated air flow restrictor set for starters.  

Surface roughness insight 

We like to share our expertise at Industrial Physics. Check out one of the recent blogs we have written: how to test surface porosity with three techniques.

The Problem

When your customers must be able to rely on your inks and coatings there’s no margin for error in your test and inspection processes. So, settling for second-rate equipment and advice is a risky business! 

The Solution

With several dedicated inks and coatings testing brands in the Industrial Physics family, our industry-leading product portfolio and expertise is even relied upon by leading paint testing laboratories.   

The Result

Artur Palasz, R&D Director at Spektrochem, said:

Many of our customers appreciate Industrial Physics equipment, because it is a world-class apparatus that they know and use in their laboratories. Excellent technical contact, perfect customer service and fast order processing time are undoubtedly additional advantages that determine the choice of Industrial Physics as our permanent supplier of laboratory equipment today and in the future.”
