James King from Zwick/Roell visited last week to teach the Advanced Textile Research Group more about use of our tensile tester. That’s the machine on the right in the photo, set up to pull on a long, thin sample until it breaks. This machine pulls or compresses materials to find their durability. We are creating tests for electronic textiles to ensure that these can survive knitting and weaving processes, then repeated wearing, washing and drying.
