Yarn Strength Testing System

KFY-1100Y Yarn Strength Testing SystemYarn Strength Testing System

Tailored for Textiles proudly presents the KFY-1100Y Yarn Strength Testing System. As yarn forms the basis for the production of all types of fabrics it is essential that the strength and elongation of the yarn is monitored by a yarn strength testing system to ensure that it is suitable for today’s high speed production techniques and its performance matches the requirements of the finished product. To ensure high levels of accuracy and repeatable result, we offer yarn strength testing systems specifically designed for precision yarn testing.

Standard system includes a 500 n (50 kgf) x 0.01g loadcell, 1000mm x 0.001mm crosshead travel, pneumatic yarn grips with footswitch controls and comprehensive test software.

Pneumatic Yarn Grips
Easy to use capstan and clamp pneumatic yarn grips. Guaranteed precision yarn strength testing without jaw breaks. Individual footswitches for ease of loading and ideal for both research and volume yarn strength testing.

Windows software package that covers a complete range of yarn testing. Designed for your Yarn Strength Testing System, this software has pre-defined calculations to international standards including tensile strength, elongation and tenacity among others with graphical displays, reports, analysis and archiving.
