James H Heals Redesigned Orbitor Offers Flexibility

James H. HealandCo. Ltd., United Kingdom, has reengineered its Orbitor pilling and snagging tester for use on woven or knitted materials.Offering flexibility, the two- or four-position instrument can be configured with any combination of pilling box, snagging box, pilling drum or snagging drum.The new design includes six speeds in addition to three standard speeds, with the option to reverse for non-standard test applications and developmental work.Equipped with individual position counters, the Orbitor enables the operator to monitor multiple tests simultaneously. An inverter drive maintains constant speed and features an over-torque sensor that will safely stop the instrument if obstruction is detected.The tester complies with requirements of EN ISO 12945-1 and MarksandSpencer test methods P18A, P18B and P21A.
