Several different types and brands of flour tortillas were tested on the TA.XTPlus using our TA-108 Tortilla/Film Fixture. The Tortilla/Film Fixture is an acrylic cylinder with a 63 mm diameter opening mounted on an aluminum platform. The tortillas are held down by plates with similar openings screwed onto four alignment pins. Each tortilla was pre-punched with wholes to fit over the alignment pins. The fixture holds the tortillas down in a drum-like fashion to a uniform tension.
