The experts of quality control systems Textechno Herbert Stein Gmbh & Co. KG, Monchengladback/ Germany, will show its latest testing for industrial fibres, yarns and composites at the Techtextil.
The Favimt+ Auto feed, a fully automatic single-fiber testing system, combines 6 different testing methods to determine the following fiber properties in a single instrument: linear density, tensile properties, mechanical crimp properties (crimp percent, removal force and stability) geometrical crimp structure, fibre to metal friction and bending stiffness. The sample feed unit Autofeed reduces labour for preparation of the test specimen and introduction into the test field to a minimum.
The fimatest system, that measures the fibermatrix adhesion by means of a single-fibre pull-out will also be on show. The system consists of the Fimabond embedding station and a clamping accessory to the Favimat+
A further highlight 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 5,000N. Therefore, Statimat 4U is suitable to test even materials with the highest tenacity, such as Aramid, and high tenacity polythelene (UHMWPE) yarns.
