Elongation Tester EFT

5 measuring ranges from 25 N up to 125 N

For measuring static and permanent elongation of fabrics.

Developed in cooperation with leading german automotive manufacturers and the Saxon Textile Research Institute Chemnitz e. V.
with max. 6 independently working test stations

Special Features

  • 3 different designs with 1, 3 or 6 test stations
  • Rugged warp resistant aluminium frame
  • Recommended size of the test specimen: 50 x 160 mm (non-metal fabrics)
  • Capacity 25, 50, 75, 100 or 125 N
  • Max. test periode 99 minutes
  • Elongation force tester with 0.01 mm resolution
  • Accuracy at max. elongation is 0.4 mm

Standard Features

  • The different test stations are working independent

Test procedure

Adjust the measuring force with the delivered weights. Fix the test specimen, e. g. 50 x 160 mm, between the two clamps. Determine the length exactly by using the length measuring system and mark this initial value. Activate the timer. Read the static elongation at the end of the test period. Determine the permanent elongation after the adjusted balancing time.
