KMI’s materials testing systems help companies in the textile industry test their fabrics, cords, yarns, ropes, and thread for breakage strength, elongation, and tear resistance. All of KMI ’s constant-rate-of-extension (CRE) machines meet or exceed ASTM D76 which covers the operating characteristics of tensile testing machine machines for the determination of the force and elongation properties of textile materials. KMI materials testing systems are used by the textile industry because of their reliability and easy to use. We also have a large selection of tensile grips specifically designed for testing fabrics, thread, ropes and webbings.
All KMI Testing Machines can be equipped with open servo controllers. Our most advanced testing system is a PC-based unit that offers a wide range of flexibility in control, data acquisition, analysis, and reporting. Which automatically calculates common mechanical properties in accordance with specifications such as ASTM D638, ASTM D790, ASTM D412, and ASTM D624 among others.
