The Stiffness of Cloth Tester (Motorised) measure the stiffness of non woven fabrics. It uses the by cantilever bending of the fabric under its own weight. Thus calculating the bending length and flexural rigidity. To test a sample, firstly, set the instrument on a flat, rigid surface. Then, place the specimen slide assembly on the top of the horizontal platform. If your instrument includes the hand crank, ensure the specimen slide assembly is aligned within the slide plate. Finally using the leveling bubble on the specimen slide assembly as a guide, adjust the leveling feet. Thus, such that the platform is horizontal. If the bubble is centred, no adjustment is necessary. The Stiffness of Cloth Tester (Motorised) works on a motor and thus requires less efforts.
