Bending can be conducted on single hair and other natural fibres. Single fibre bending is performed using the FBS900 Fibre Bending System.
The FBS900 is a miniature fibre bending instrument suitable for both the study of natural and man-made fibres, based on the bending of a single cantilever against a stainless pin. Throughput can be dramatically increased with the addition of an automated module, maximising efficiency. The standard sample cassette holds up to 50 mounted fibres, which can be measured automatically without user intervention.
Samples are mounted using Dia-Stron 2-part plastic tabs and subsequently are compatible with other measurement modules in the range, including the FDAS770 Fibre Dimensional Analysis System to collect dimensional data.
