Problem: Manufacturers need a cost-effective means to test fabric performance.

Fabric Testing Utility (FTU) is designed to advance the OptiTex system’s ability to recreate the dynamics of fabric movement on fully adjustable, lifelike, virtual mannequins. The lightweight, briefcase-sized device accurately measures the four principal types of fabric strain: bend, stretch, shear and friction. The machine also has an automated repeat function to validate the measurements, offering a user-friendly, time- and money-saving method to ensure customer satisfaction and reduce waste.
