The KES-FB2-SH Single Fiber Bending Tester makes it possible to easily measure and quantify softness, elasticity, and diffusion differences in a single strand of yarn or hair. Elasticity and diffusion differences can be quantified by measuring the hardness and recoverability when bending the target. With the KES-FB2-SH, measurements can be performed easily for a single strand, eliminating effort spent creating multiple samples.
Capture minute area moments as felt by a fingertip thanks to the device’s wire torsion torque detection method. Quantify data correlating to sensory evaluations with high reproducibility.
Successfully eliminate user-caused measurement errors thanks to a simple measurement operation.

KES (Kawabata Evaluation System)
The Kawabata Evaluation System, centered on Sueo Kawabata, a professor at Kyoto University, and Masako Niwa, a professor at Nara Women’s University, is an objective evaluation method for measuring the texture of clothing fabrics based on the “The Standardization and Analysis of Hand Evaluation” provided by the Hand Evaluation and Standardization Committee of the Textile Machinery Society of Japan.
We offer free sampling services, "for a deeper understanding of our products", "for confirming the measured data that can be obtained", and "to prepare the data necessary for submission of internal approval documents". Please feel free to contact us.
