SDL Atlas showcased at ITMA 2019 a new line of textile test materials, RemoteAccess, and the newly redesigned Vortex M6, a recent news release says. The Vortex M6 incorporates a full-color touch-screen controller that uses English and Chinese. RemoteAccess is a system for tracking real-time testing progress of instruments. The app is available for download on iOS and Android devices.
The company says the programs can be customized and saved, including wash cycles of up to 80 hours and the ability to continuously run and repeat cycles. The instrument is powered with cycle status notification via RemoteAccess and features a flashing light to signal operator attention or the end of a test.
The company reported it is now producing both ISO and AATCC styles of test materials directly. These include multifiber (both AATCC and ISO), detergents, gray scales, blue wool, crocking squares and fabrics, abrasion and pilling testing materials, and phenolic yellowing testing materials.
With offices in the U.S., U.K., Hong Kong and China, plus agents serving more than 100 countries, SDL Atlas supports customers with instruments, test materials and services.
