MESDAN® S.p.A., the Italy-based leading manufacturer of yarn joining solutions and laboratory testing equipment will be again in the spotlight at two important forthcoming events:
- ITM exhibition (14 – 18 June), the most important textile machinery exhibition of Turkey.
Mesdan will attend this show for the first time in its new Vandewiele corporate vest. Mesdan will be exhibiting in two locations on its agents booth:
Hall 3, Stand No. 309A with SARTEKS MAKINA, agent for the spinning sector (for both splicers and laboratory equipment).
AUTOFIL, the very new fully automatic tensile strength tester for yarns and fabrics will be on display. Autofil is the spearhead of the Mesdan dynamometer range, which has been recently completely revised with the latest technology available.
MOISTAIR, the milestone in the yarn joining technology supplied along the Savio automatic winders, today available also in the hand-operated version for the installation on assembly winders, twisting machines, creels, etc. Moistair is the ideal solution for splicing twisted cotton or when the range of plied yarns is very wide, from pure cotton to pure synthetics through all kinds of blends.
MOISTAIR completes the range of other Mesdan automatic and hand-operated splicers, like the famous JOINTAIR, AQUASPLICER and HOT JOINTAIR models.
Hall 12, Stand No. 1211 with SPOT TEKSTIL, agent for the fabrics/garments testing and for the dyeing and finishing sector.
Mesdan can offer complete laboratory solutions for all fabric testing (weaving, knitting, dyeing, garment) as well as for third party testing Labs and testing institutes. Physical testing (strength, elongation, tearing, abrasion, pilling, air & water permeability, dimensional stability, etc.), colour fastness (to washing, rubbing, light exposure, perspiration), fire and comfort testing are part of the Mesdan-Lab catalogue as well.
- TECHTEXTIL showcases Lab range
Mesdan will be present at the ACIMIT/ITA (the Asso- ciation of Italian textile machinery manufacturers/Italian Trade Agency) exhibition space along with other 28 Italian textile machinery manufacturers.
When technical and PPI (weather protective, fire protective, against mechanical risks) are concerned, here is a condensed list of the main testing parameters that can be assessed with the Mesdan-Lab range:
» Strength (up to 50kN capacity), perforation, fatigue (cycle testing), stretch recovery, elongation, tear, adhesion, etc.
» Cutting resistance (with circular and linear blades)
» Bursting & tearing
» Air and water permeability
» Water vapour absorption
» Static electricity
» Wear (Martindale) and pilling, Impact Abrasion
» Flammability and evaluation of burn risks
» All kind of dimensional stability and color fastness testing (rubbing, sunlight, washing, etc.)
Finally, Mesdan is the European sales & service station of THERMETRICS, USA, manufacturer of precision instruments for measuring and evaluating the thermal comfort properties of textiles, garments, protective apparel, as well as dynamic thermal environments such as car, truck and aircraft interiors.
