TMS Volodkevich bite jaws

TMS Volodkovitch bite jawsThe TMS Volodkevich bite jaws fixture uses an established texture measurement technique to assess properties, such as the tenderness of meat, by simulating the biting action of the front incisor teeth with a pair of blunt wedges.

The fixture consists of upper and lower 3 mm diameter probe edges. The upper knife is attached to the texture analyzer loadcell and the lower securely fitted within the TMS standard fixture table. A sample is placed on the lower knife edge, whilst the loadcell moves the upper knife edge downwards to shear the sample in a guillotine action.

Samples of up to 1 cm2 (0.15 in2) in cross-section can be accommodated.
