Lyon Science Transfert offers to grant patent license and looks for industrial partners.
To avoid subjective hand touch evaluation of fabric quality, the laboratory has set up a new device to characterize fabric’s sensory properties.
The new easy to use device, developed by the laboratory, measures simultaneously softness (vibratory measurement) and stiffness (force sensors) of fabric in a liable, objective and reproducible way. Any manufacturing drift can be detected on time thanks to successive or continuous testing of fabric samples from production. A single quality control reference is created and applicable in different geographical production sites at the national or international level. Fabric manufacturing quality is kept constant.
