Product Details




The comprehensivesophisticated design of the FTT enables it to measure all the mechanical and surface properties of fabric in one simple test.

  • Smoothness 

  • Softness 

  • Warmth

  • Total Hand/Touch Feel


The movement of the upper and lower plates perform different measurements within the multiple modules of: 

  • Thermal-Compression

  • Surface Friction

  • Roughness 

  • Bending



Both sides of the L shaped sample are measured in order to provide a total comfort profile


Much as a spectrophotometer is used for color, the FTT can measure, communicate, and compare fabric hand through a global supply chain providing consistency among:

  • Research & Development
  • Designers
  • Manufacturers
  • Test Labs


With the QC Software, numeric difference are calculated between samples that can be visualized in a Radar Chart for quick reference 

  • Compare samples' Primary Sensor Indices (PSI) from FTT data
  • User defined upper and lower PSI limits
  • Quality Control PASS/FAIL based on tolerance
  • Compare multiple fabrics
  • Save results for distribution and comparison
