• Vibrodyn 500



    Vibrodyn 500 has been developed to cover the
    wide spectrum of requirements in tensile testing
    of single fibers. Programmable microelectronics
    guarantee maximum flexibility.
    The instrument is „one button operated“ for easy
    and fast handling. Thereby, any operator
    influence is avoided, which means optimum
    accuracy and reliability of results.



  • Fimatest

    Fibre-Matrix Adhesion Tester FIMATEST



    The performance of composite materials strongly
    depends on the adhesion of the fibres to the matrix.
    On the microscopic level different test procedures
    have been established in various research institutes,
    however, most results are not comparable,
    since none of these tests are standardized or
    commercially available.


  • Statimat Me+

    Automatic Tensile Tester



    This fully automatic tensile tester represents
    the latest evolutionary stage of the legendary
    STATIMAT line, which has been manufactured by
    Textechno for approximately 50 years. The
    STATIMAT ME+ combines a budget price with
    maximum flexibility, low energy consumption, and
    the outstanding performance of a STATIMAT ME.
    As its predecessors it features the straight input
    feed into the test section by the draw-off clamp for
    each new yarn length. In addition to the advantages
    of low technical expenditure, high delivery
    speed, and extremely reliable operation the
    STATIMAT ME+ enables the use of a package
    changer for feeding up to 50 yarn packages. The
    modular composition of the ME+ allows optimised
    configurations for every technical demand and

    Automatic Tensile-,
    Evenness-, and
    Count Tester



    n the production of staple fi bre- or fi lament yarns
    as well as in twisting or texturizing operations
    quality control serves to secure material properties
    which ensure trouble-free downstream processing
    as well as fl awless fi nal products. On the other
    hand, by routine testing of yarns it is possible to
    recognize faults in the production process early
    enough to analyze the causes of such defects and
    to take corrective actions.
    The most important properties of yarns are tensile
    strength and elongation, mass unevenness, and
    yarn count (linear density). Static tensile tests, yarn
    evenness tests, as well as various methods of yarn
    count testing, e.g. by means of wrap reel and
    balance, serve for the assessment of these yarn
    properties. The operation of different test equip-
    ment to which the yarn samples are presented one
    after another, results in high expenditure of labour
    and, especially in case of modern automatic
    computer-controlled testing equipment, in
    considerable fi nancial investment.


  • Statimat 4U

    Automatic Linear Density-,
    Twist-, and Tensile Tester
    for High-Tenacity Yarns



    Automatic tensile tests on yarns with high linear
    density and breaking strength demand special requirements
    regarding clamps, measuring system,
    sample waste disposal, and mechanical stability
    of the testing equipment. This particularly applies
    to technical yarns comprising high-tenacity
    polymers such as Aramid or UHMWPE. Here
    force-measurement limits of 1000 N and mechanical
    stress limitations for such test equipment are
    insufficient in most cases. In addition, the clamps
    of the automatic tensile testing equipment are often
    inadequate for withstanding breaking forces of this


  • Favimat + Favigraph

    Automatic Single-Fibre Testers



    Testing and evaluation of a wide range of fibre
    properties are essential for research and quality
    control purposes in fibre production and for assessing
    the processability of fibres in carding and
    spinning. For man-made fibres and in some cases
    even for natural fibres these tests are carried out
    on single fibres. Here, typical testing methods
    are the static tensile test, linear-density
    (fineness) measurement, and measurement of
    crimp extension, crimp stability as well as number of crimps.
