SDL Atlas Reps Tinius Olsen, Supplies Digi-Eye To NCSU Lab

England-based SDL Atlas has been named the exclusive worldwide sales agent for universal testing machines (UTMs) from Horsham, Pa.-based Tinius Olsen Inc. SDL Atlas now offers single- and dual-column Tinius Olsen UTMs that are designed for use on all types of materials to test flexure, tension, compression, shear and peel. The UTMs are programmed with TexMat/Pro Testing software, which features test specifications, machine setup instructions and report formats for almost 300 international textile testing methods.

In other company news, the Datacolor Color Science Laboratory at the College of Textiles of Raleigh, N.C.-based North Carolina State University (NCSU) has acquired and operates the first SDL Atlas DigiEye digital imaging system in an academic facility. The unit is being used in research projects to measure the fastness of small, colored objects to staining and washing, according to NCSU College of Textiles faculty member David Hinks, Ph.D. The system also may be used in research projects involving 3-D objects that are too small to be measured using a traditional reflectance spectrophotometer.
