As the first testing instrument world-wide, the fibre length- and strength tester FIBROTEST from Textechno Herbert Stein GmbH & Co. KG, Germany received an official and full recognition from the International Committee on Cotton Testing Methods (ICCTM), a Committee of the International Textile Manufacturers Federation (ITMF; see itmf.org).
FIBROTEST has been developed to be used by spinners, but because of its flexibility in parameter settings is also interesting for research institutes. It determines fibre length distribution as well as strength in both, a direct measurement and relative to calibration cotton. In addition to cotton the instrument has been applied successfully for cottonized linen and it can be used for fibre length testing on all kinds of fibres up to a maximum length of about 200 mm. FIBROTEST has proven its reliability at remote customers all over the world.Back to Overview
