Natural fibres vary in shape and size, occasionally featuring additional surface characteristics. This increased variability requires a different approach for dimensional and mechanical analysis to regular, repeatable fibres such as carbon.
The FDAS770, a non-contact direct diameter measurement system, utilises a high-frequency scanning laser, lending itself perfectly to irregular fibres whilst being insensitive to external vibration. Dia-Stron offers various sample mounting techniques which allow our systems to handle a wide range of sample variability, such as cotton, flax, bamboo, sisal, etc.
