We officially launch our new Martindale 1300 Series

16 September 2014

Our Martindale Abrasion and Pilling Tester has evolved over several decades and on each occasion we have offered improved design and intuitive operating features for the users, with every detail and every touch point created with the user in mind.

The new 1300 Series is available in three sizes to accommodate different levels of testing, the Mini-Martindale 1302 model, the Midi-Martindale 1305 model and the 9 station Maxi-Martindale 1309 model.

New features include a hinged top plate on the Maxi-Martindale model, which allows access to all testing stations and an intuitive user interface that enables quick and easy set up.

Historically developed for testing woven and knitted textiles, the Martindale tester is used for many different materials, including nonwovens, socks, gloves, cords and straps, carpets, leather wood high pressure laminates, painted surfaces and for many other applications (either dry or wet).

First unveiled at Techtextil North America in Atlanta in May, the Maxi Martindale is also on show at ITMA Asia from today, 16th June, in the New International Expo Centre, in Shanghai, China, where visitors can have a demonstration of the new model along with other testing instruments for physical and colour fastness testing. The James Heal stand is in Hall 3 on Stand A21, at this exhibition, which runs from 16th to 20th of June.

Commenting on the new collection, David Repper, Managing Director of James Heal explains, "the 1300 Martindale Series is an absolute pleasure to use and the stylish design will enhance the appearance of any laboratory to help create confidence in the minds of customers."

Designed using the expertise and knowledge of a talented team of industrial, mechanical and electronic designers, the new Martindale 1300 series is a masterpiece of precision engineering demonstrates James Heal's commitment to simplify and accelerate routine laboratory testing and demonstrates James Heal's commitment to create "extraordinary testing solutions".
