At the forthcoming ITMA the Italian manufacturer of Yarn Knotters & Splicers Mesdan (Hall H1, booth A103) will showcase a variety of well known and new yarn splicers (Jointair ® – Aquasplicer ® – Hot Jointair ®). In addition the division dedicated to the development and production of Laboratory Quality Control equipment - known as Mesdan-Lab and in 2011 celebrateing its 20 years anniversary- will present some new Q.C. Laboratory instruments:

For fibre/yarn testing:

+ new Mesdan EVENNESS Tester MT, for the evenness and hairiness control of slivers, rovings and spun yarns. The system analyses periodic mass variations generated in the manufacturing process.

Main characteristics:
  • exclusive capacitive sensor with wide testing range (from 80 g/m of sliver up to Ne 200 yarn)
  • modular system enabling to integrate the H-Sensor (for hairiness measurement) and fully automatic testing (with the addition of the Automatic Cop Changer)
  • fully automatic system calibration
  • ISO 9001 Calibration Report available
  • Windows MT-5 software system for statistical data elaboration (mass variations assessment, U%, CV%, DR%, spectrogram, imperfection indicator of thin and thick places, neps, hairiness, etc), graph elaboration, data storage,
  • obtained results are compatible and comparable with the most popular international standards
  • engineered, designed and manufactured in Italy


+ new version of the fully automatic yarn strength tester AUTODYN up to 5.000mm/sec speed


+ new fully automatic Twistmatic Plus, yarn twist tester PC controlled,

+ new Aqualab, for momentaneous high-volume measurement of moisture and regain in loose fibres and yarn packages

For fabric/garment testing:

+ new automatic ELMATIC Elmendorf Tear tester with 30.000 cN capacity range

+ new twin column Tenso-Lab 5.000 universal strength tester with 50kN capacity equipped with extension-meter

+ modular NEW 9 position MARTINDALE Abrasion & Pilling tester

On the SPLICER side (Mesdan® Yarn Joining Division), several novelties will be on display:

+ new Aquasplicer 4925B on electric bar for elastic core-yarn

+ redesigned NEW Indigo splicer 4662 for Re-beaming (for Indigo dyed yarns)

+ new Hot Jointair 4984B for coarse fancy yarns

+ new automatic Jointair 698R (replacing 498 series) for Savio Espero retrofitting

+ Jointair 116G for very coarse technical yarns, up to 5.000 Tex

Mesdan invites visitors to discover the latest models of the Mesdan-Lab QC range in Hall H1, booth A103.
