Textechno, a designer and manufacturer of precision test equipment and systems for fibers, yarns and rovings in textile and composite applications, has expanded its range of testing services.

As well as testing test basic fiber properties, customers can now examine fiber/matrix adhesion as well as the drapability of fabrics and non-crimp for composites using the company’s testing technology.

‘We were acknowledged with remarkable success at JEC with our innovative machines,’ said Dr Ulrich Mörschel, CEO of Textechno. ‘In the relatively young market of composites testing, manufacturers do not immediately set up their own testing laboratory when only having occasional needs. Therefore, we have made the strategic decision to extend our offer by the testing service.’

‘The determination of characteristic values is very important for the design of composite components, both in calculation and simulation and so are the values for drapability and fiber-matrix adhesion which are provided by Textechno´s testing equipment,’ said Dr Michael Effing, CEO of AMAC GmbH and senior advisor for fiber-reinforced plastics to Textechno.
