L605 : HandTouchTissue device

technology offers

Lyon Science Transfert offers to grant patent license and looks for industrial partners.

DESCRIPTION

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.

 

ADVANTAGES / NOVELTY
  • Objective, liable and reproducible characterization of fabric quality, compared to human testing,
  • Creation of a single control quality reference
  • Useful device to maintain constant manufacturing quality worldwide
  • Easy to use device,
  • Woven and nonwoven fabric testing.

APPLICATIONS
  • Textiles manufacturing industry (woven and nonwoven materials)
  • Luxury clothing industry
