At the show, Textechno will demonstrate the Favimat+Autofeed, a fully automatic single-fibre testing system that helps determine fibre properties in a single instrument like: linear density, tensile properties, mechanical crimp properties (crimp percent, removal force and stability), geometrical crimp structure, fibre-to-metal friction and bending stiffness, said the company in a press release. The sample feed unit Autofeed reduces labour for preparation of the test specimen and introduction into the test field to literally zero.
For the second time at Techtextil Textechno will show the Fimatest system that measures the fibre-matrix adhesion by means of a single-fibre pull-out. The system consists of the Fimabond embedding station and a clamping accessory to the Favimat+.
A further highlight of the show is the automatic linear density and tensile tester for high-tenacity yarns Statimat 4U. This instrument is especially developed for very coarse and high-tenacity yarns with a force measuring range up to 5.000 N. Therefore, Statimat 4U is suitable to test even Aramid and high tenacity Polyethylene (UHMWPE) yarns.
Further outstanding Textechno products for testing industrial fibres, yarns and composites are Dynafil Me + Dynamic shrinkage tester of all kinds of yarns, Drapetest Automatic drapability tester for standard and non-crimped fabrics, Rovingtest Automatic test system for the processing properties of rovings.
