WOVEN & KNITTED FABRICS TESTING

  • GyroWash

    COLOUR FASTNESS TO LAUNDERING TESTER™

    Available as 8 and 20 pot instruments, the
    GyroWash is a colour fastness to
    laundering tester for textiles and leather,
    according to AATCC and ISO standards.
    Featuring the most simple to use
    touchscreen user interface on the market.

     

  • FX 3250 Pick Counter II

    Automatic Pick Counter

     

    The FX 3250 PickCounter II determines the thread density of woven fabrics and wire meshes
    as well as the loop density of knitwear. It can be used for measurements in the laboratory and
    for mobile applications on the production floor.

     

  • Drapetest

    Automatic Drapability Tester

     

     

    The behavior of standard- and non-crimp fabrics
    in forming and draping is of importance in any
    production process of non-flat, fabric-reinforced
    composite parts. As automation of such production
    processes progresses, drapability and the detection
    of defects during draping like gaps, loops, or
    wrinkles become even more important.
    DRAPETEST, a new automatic drapability tester,
    allows to automatically characterize drapability and
    the formation of defects during draping and forming.
    The tester combines the measurement of the
    force, which is required for forming, with an optical
    analysis of small-scale defects such as gaps and
    loops by means of image analysis. An optional
    triangulation sensor can determine large-scale
    defects such as wrinkles.
    As a standardized simulation of the draping
    process a flat circular sample of the fabric to be
    tested is deformed at its center by means of a
    motor-driven piston. A camera with an appropriate
    illumination inspects the sample at several elevation
    steps while the sample is rotated in order to
    inspect a maximum percentage of its surface. In
    the same manner the sample is scanned by the
    optional triangulation sensor.
