James H. Heal Upgrades Plant, Gains M&S Approval For Testing Line

England-based textile testing instrument maker James H. Heal and Co. Ltd. has installed new equipment in its plant to provide improved efficiency and cost-effectiveness in its production department. In addition to a Vertical Machining Centre for processing metal parts and a punching machine for its sheet metal department, the company has purchased an LVD Press Brake that enables rapid prototyping prior to actual production of a new instrument.


Heal employees bend parts for a Thermaplate
Thermal Stability Tester using the LVD Press Brake.

  The company also has received approval from England-based retailer Marks & Spencer (M&S) for three products from its Quality Assured Consumables line: the Multifibre Adjacent Fabric Type DW; Cotton Lawn and Crocking Cloths; and Grey Scales for Colour Change and Staining. These instruments are available globally through Heal’s representatives.
