Our Sharp Edge Tester Model SET-50™ is the original sharp edge tester that was developed to satisfy Underwriter Laboratories U.L. Standard 1439 for the “determination of sharp edges”. It is the leader in product safety testing equipment for edge sharpness.

The Sharp Edge Tester Model SET-50™ features a clam shell type housing that fits into the palm of your hand. It is constructed using a compact arm, sealed ball bearings to reduce friction, and a spring specifically designed to meet the latest Underwriters Laboratories’ force requirements. This housing ensures all moving mechanisms are protected against dirt and breakage.

Used according to directions, the tester provides proper pressure that, run along the edge of a manufactured item, will give a pass/fail result for the object’s safety for general use. A combination of the calibrated pressure applied by the Sharp Edge Tester Model SET-50™, and the exact sensitivity of the tape caps that fit onto the pressure head of the tool, will result in a simple pass/fail that indicates if your product is safe. Tape caps are reusable until the test fails, and the tape cap is cut. Then it must be discarded. Our tester is very light weight and the tape caps fit easily onto the pressure head.

In order to perform a test, the Sharp Edge Tester Model SET-50™ must be used along with Tape Caps as provided with the Tape Cap Kit Model TC-3™. Please note the Sharp Edge Tester Model SET-50™ comes with one (1) Tape Cap located on the pressure head of the tester. Should this Tape Cap be cut during edge sharpness testing, it must be discarded. It is important to have multiple Tape Caps on hand, especially during assembly line testing. That is why we offer the Tape Cap Kit Model TC-3™. These Tape Caps are specifically designed to fit on the Sharp Edge Tester Model SET-50™.

The Sharp Edge Tester Model SET-50™ complies with Underwriters Laboratories U.L. Standard 1439. The tester includes a User’s Manual, a Certificate of Calibration, and one tape cap on the head of the tester.

The Tape Cap Kit Model TC-3™ complies with UL Standard 1439. It contains 44 handmade tape caps per box. The tape simulates the layers of skin on a finger. Each tape cap is designed to test for sharp edges and contains 3 preassembled tape layers and a center guideline on a plastic cap.

The tape cap slips on the pressure head of the Sharp Edge Tester Model SET-50™ for easy testing. The Tape Cap meets the UL Standard 1439 requirement of three tapes:

  • 1 layer of Foam Black Tape
  • 1 layer of Foam White Tape
  • 1 layer of Teflon® Tape

The Tape Cap also features a 1/16” wide guideline, which is on the center of the cap and helps the inspector performing the test to “center” the tape and the tool on the edge being tested.

Use of a three layered Tape Cap is the most efficient way for the inspector to easily and rapidly conduct multiple tests on the production line without having to install three different layers of tape on the tool prior to testing each individual item. Each time a test is performed with the Tape Cap, a cut Tape Cap can be quickly identified, removed, and replaced within seconds, thus enabling more tests in less time to facilitate inspection reports.

The Tape Cap Kit Model TC-3™, comes with 44 handmade tape caps per box. This is especially convenient if the one tape cap that comes with the tester is cut during edge sharpness testing. That cut cap should be examined and discarded. These tape caps can be inserted and removed quickly from the head of the tester and are convenient on assembly line testing.

The Tape Cap Kit Model TC-3™ Tape Caps are custom made for the Sharp Edge Tester Model SET-50™. Our tape caps fit precisely, unlike other manufacturers’ tape caps that may be too small and throw off the calibration.

By ordering the Tape Cap Kit Model TC-3™ with the Sharp Edge Tester Model SET-50™ at the same time, you’ll have a ready supply of Tape Caps and also save on additional shipping and handling costs if ordered at a later time.
