England-based textile testing equipment manufacturer James H. Heal & Co. Ltd. has added model
864 to its line of Nu-Martindale abrasion and pilling testers. The company says the competitively
priced tester features four, six or eight positions with the possibility of upgrading from four
positions to more; and offers flexibility and ease of use for changing motions, and for access to
the abrading tables. It also features the newest touch screen graphic liquid crystal display (LCD)
and intuitive, flexible software that allows tracking of tests running simultaneously.
The 864 complies with all known standard/test methods and is fully supported by the company’s
Healink global servicing and calibration.
