Press release date: April 1, 2012
Between 12-16 June, visitors to ITMA Asia, Shanghai will have the opportunity to view James Heal latest technological innovations in textile testing with their exciting new range of Testing Instruments and Test Materials in Hall W3 E21.
James Heal design, develop and manufacture testing instruments and test materials for fabric and garment manufacturers and independent test houses - all under one roof and entirely in the UK.
Our focus at James Heal is on producing high quality precision instruments and associated products, which allow retailers to feel confident in the quality of the garments being produced around the world. We want to continue to innovate, rather than imitate, and our in-house state-of the-art product design and laboratory facilities enable us to design, develop and manufacture extraordinary testing solutions.
At this year's ITMA Asia, we are exhibiting the following Testing Instruments:
Titan4 is our brand new universal strength tester. It has been designed to test textiles, nonwovens and leather in various forms. This compact desktop strength tester operates in both compression and tension and comes with a range of tool-free interchangeable specimen grips. It is available with a choice of load cells, up to 3000N, which are supplied in cartridge form to improve protection and facilitate safe handling and storage. It has all the safety features you would expect from a universal strength tester, such as soft close grips, but is packed with intuitive features that are design to make testing simple.
Titan4 works in conjunction with TestWise 2012, test analysis software that provides our customers a comprehensive library of International and National standards, as well as being packed with retailers' own test methods. Available in seven different languages (English, Turkish, Chinese, German, Spanish, Italian and French), TestWise 2012 uses familiar industry and standard specific terminology, so test results match up to the test standard that is being used.

TruBurst3 is a fully pneumatic bursting and 3D fatigue tester. The inherent flexibility of TruBurst3 gives it the capacity to test a broad range of materials including textiles, nonwovens, paper, board, plastics and medical products. The non-contact laser distension measurement gives accurate results, while the adjustable clamping pressure and automatic diaphragm correction prevents any slippage or specimen damage and improves precision. TruBurst3 has intuitive cyclic software which means that both experienced and inexperienced users can operate this testing instrument with ease.

Martindale 900 Series
Our innovative product design team have set a new standard with this abrasion and pilling tester. The series includes three models, fully populated with two, five or nine stations, and each combine the best in style, quality and functionality. On show at ITMA Asia will be the Martindale 909, our nine station abrasion tester.
Each model offers users unobstructed access to all test stations and offers the simplicity of tool-free change between motions. For more information on the Martindale 900 Series, please visit: http://www.james-heal.co.uk/store/testing-instruments/physical-testing/martindale-900/

The user friendly software means that no calculations are required, whilst the fool-proof operation gives users automatic level compensation, automatic pendulum weight detection and visible and audible indicators. No finger traps, two handed release of the pendulum and the automatic arrest of the weight will mean that even the most safety conscious with be delighted with Elmatear2 safety features.
