New acquisitions in our lab: A bursting strength tester and a stiffness tester
For an accredited laboratory like Weber & Leucht, it is of vital importance to keep the lab equipment up to date, in order to expand the range of available testing methods.
Currently we have two new acquisitions: With our new bursting strength tester we can analyze the resistance of textiles and other materials when exposed to pressure. The results are displayed as a force curve and may be saved and processed directly. The appliance offers fully programmable testing methods and allows the use of dynamic models.
Our new stiffness tester allows us to simulate and analyze the wear of textiles caused by bending. This analysis method is an important constituent in the testing of coated textiles and will see frequent use in our laboratory.
Do you have further questions about the services we offer? Get in contact with us – we will be more than happy to advise!
New cooperative projects by Weber & Leucht - register now!
Cooperative projects are research projects of high practical relevance financed entirely by the industry. The costs are divided between several companies without the use of any public funds. Regular project meetings enable precise agreements; during the cooperative project, all project outcomes are also only published in part after the project ends with the consent of all participants.
Additionally, Weber & Leucht offers an optional service: After a cooperative project ends, we can support participating companies individually and draw on our expertise to promote the further development of products or processes.
The first two cooperative projects "Screening of residual contamination on PPE" and "Comfort screening of new and washed textiles using the fabric touch test system and development of a reference panel for the comfort classification of textiles" commence at March 22nd and March 23rd 2017 with project kick-off meetings in the city of Fulda, Germany.
For further information, detailed project descriptions and registration documents, please refer to our website.
New quality seal of Weber & Leucht
As an independent, accredited testing center, we assess important quality characteristics on behalf of manufacturers, public authorities and consumers. Our certificate and the corresponding seal of quality confirm the fulfillment of our test criteria and provide our customers with important elements for their marketing communication: Following certification, our seal of quality can be shown on products and packaging – a convincing incentive to buy.
For further information regarding our seal of quality, the general certification conditions and the corresponding assessment and inspection classes please refer to www.weber-leucht.com/en/certificates
Lab News: Scanning electron microscope
We are proud to present a new acquisition for our laboratory: We just added a scanning electron microscope by Hitachi (Model Flex-SEM 1000) to our technical infrastructure. This piece of equipment allows us to use new analytical methods like the Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy (EDX), which will be employed to clarify complex damage cases and to aid in R&D projects.
We are happy to answer any further questions about our different analysis methods directly – feel free to contact us!
