Available in 2 and 4 station models, the Orbitor is a consistent and reliable way to test the pilling and snagging properties of woven and knitted fabrics.
Suitable for testing to a range of standards are retailer test methods, including BS, ICI, EN, ISO and The Woolmark Company, the Orbitor is a flexible instrument to which you can add different test boxes, drums or chambers depending on the type of testing you wish to carry out.
The cork liners, which fit within the pilling and snagging boxes, have enhanced magnetic qualities making them stable thoughout the testing process even with the introduction of dust into the box. They are quick and easy to fit, saving time and increasing productivity.
The James Heal touchscreen, which is located on the base of the instrument, enables the user to control all aspects of the test in a simple, easy to learn and intuitive manner. Speed and reversal can be set by moving toggle switches, and the end of test time is displayed.
Both the 2 and 4 station Orbitors have standard fittings to allow any combination of James Heal boxes to be attached. The boxes are also customisable, as users are able to transform pilling boxes into snagging boxes by placing snagging points through the cork lining.
