Universal Strength and Elongation Testing Systems


KFG-2070 Universal Strength and Elongation Testing SystemsFabric strength tests ensure that your fabric has the strength and integrity for its intended purpose.

To ensure the high levels of accuracy and repeatability of results, we offer fabric strength testing systems specifically designed for precise fabric testing.

All models have grade 0.5 load cells with high resolution readout and grips specifically designed for fabric testing that have no slippage or jaw breaks and ensure correct values are measured.

Single and dual column testers from 1 kn (200lb) to 100 kn (20,000lb) capacity are available.

When testing the strength of fabrics it is essential that the grips used will hold the material without slippage or damaging the material.

We offer a wide range of manual and pneumatic grips that are ideally suited for testing an extensive range of fabrics and similar materials. Your fabric strength tester can also be equipped for testing yarns, zippers, buttons and many other components.

To allow us to provide you with the best offer to suit your particular fabric strength testing requirements, please complete the questionnaire in our electronic catalog or on our website and email it back to us.


WINTEST SoftwareOur “Wintest” windows software package covers a complete range of fabric strength testing.

It features pre-defined test methods that include all relevant calculations such as tensile strength, elongation, tear strength, seam strength, and burst strength, among others.

Includes graphical results, reports, analysis and archiving.
