Bio-Logic introduces the new VSP-300

Bio-Logic SAS are introducing their latest potentiostat/galvanostat-innovation of the instrument VSP-300. Compared to the old version the new one is half the size, 33,7 x 25,4 x 51,7 cm, and has a more optimized ventilation due to the chassis design. The footprint on the working desk is two times smaller than the previous chassis and the fan can work on lower speed due to the better ventilation. It has also been equipped with a new handle so that the user easily can carry the instrument. The specification for the new VSP-300 is available in the brand new product brochure, containing the Bio-Logic product range. Check it out on the link below.

SDL Atlas Launches 2nd Generation Moisture Management Tester

SDL Atlas, a global leader in textile testing solutions, is excited to introduce the 2nd
generation of the MMT® Moisture Management Tester. The new design offers an attractive
new look while incorporating several improvements.

The open design for the test area allows the use of larger samples and even a portion of a completed garment to be tested. It also makes routine cleaning of the test sensors easier. The metal housing makes the instrument more robust, while a new motorized upper sensor and sample positioning light make the test procedure even simpler.

“While the MMT has been around for a number of years, it is still considered an innovative test instrument,” said Chuck Lane, president of SDL Atlas. “We feel the improvements in this 2nd generation model will make the MMT a feature instrument in any laboratory.”

The SDL Atlas MMT measures the moisture management properties of knitted, woven, and nonwoven fabrics by measuring the liquid transport through a fabric and on both faces. Measurements include absorption rate, one-way transport, wetting time of top and bottom faces, maximum wetted radius on both surfaces, and an overall moisture management capacity.

“Today’s performance-driven markets require vendors to provide products that adequately transport moisture throughout the structure in order to keep the wearer comfortable,” said John Crocker, SDL Atlas Business Development Manager. “Vertical and Horizontal wicking tests historically used in the industry simply do not provide enough information to make a realistic claim for the market.”

SDL-Atlas launches a new FTT Fabric Touch Tester

SDL-Atlas launches a new FTT Fabric Touch Tester.

The FTT is an innovative instrument capable of measuring the five parameters associated with hand in a simple three minute test. These five parameters are heatflux, temperature, pressure, friction, and displacement. In a single test, the FTT measures fabric thickness, compression, bending, shearing, surface friction and roughness, and themal properties. The software takes all of this data and converts it into objective measurements and graphs. This information can be used to communicate hand requirements through the supply chain in a faster and objective method. Prior to the FTT, the only instrumented means of achieving these results was the Kawabata system which is expensive, very technical, and time consuming. The FTT now makes hand measurement available to all levels of the textile industry.

Nonwovens Orientation System

The fiber orientation and its distribution along and across the machine direction is of crucial
importance for web characteristics such as strength, tenacity and working capacity.
This demand for accurate monitoring of the fiber orientation is given by NOS 200,
which offers online or offline inspection of the web.
Out of the detected distribution of the fiber orientation, the relation of the strength along and across the web can be estimated.
