To determine the abrasion and pilling resistance of all kinds of textile structures.Samples are rubbed against known abradents at low pressures and in continuously changing directions and the amount of abrasion or pilling is compared against standard parameters. Provided with Touch Screen Controller and unique programmer which includes preprogammable batch and totaliser counters, individual station counters, 4 selectable test speeds with liquid crystal display.
