SDL Atlas Martindale Receives Upgrades

SDL Atlas, a global leader in textile testing solutions, introduces the next-generation Martindale Abrasion and Pilling Tester. The new design offers an attractive new look while incorporating several improvements. 

The Martindale Abrasion and Pilling Tester is a versatile instrument with precision components to deliver the exact abrasion or pilling movements required by all international and retailer standards. All four configurations, 9-head, 8-head, 6-head and 4-head, now feature an improved touch screen controller with the most common functions accessible in one or two touches. Individual station counters track the testing to calculate a test End Time. Available consumables along with ordering information can also be accessed directly on the instrument display to simplify reordering. The interface also features a multi-lingual interface with display options in English, Chinese, Spanish and Turkish.

The sleek new design also now incorporates a storage rack for the light weight motion plate, and enhanced sample holders allowing for quicker sample loading. Other upgrades include stronger base feet to increase instrument stability and a new motion plate sliding pad designed to reduce instrument noise. Servicing the Martindale is made easier with access to the control panel through four quick-lock couplers and the use of Surface Mount Technology electronic components on the controller circuit board.

“SDL Atlas partners closely with our customers in order to provide the best possible testing experience,” said SDL Atlas President, Chuck Lane. “The enhanced Martindale not only has a more stylish and streamlined appearance, but also delivers a tester that is easier to use and service.”

The improved Martindale Testers are currently available world-wide.

SDL Atlas is committed to providing customers confidence in standard based testing. With offices and experts in the United States, United Kingdom, Hong Kong and China, plus agents serving over 100 countries, SDL Atlas is ready to support its customers with instruments, equipment, consumables, and services anywhere in the world.
