The Hong Kong Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel (HKRITA) have announced that they have won a Grand Award of Equipment and Machinery Design in the 2016 Hong Kong Awards for Industries. Dr Harry Lee, chairman of HKRITA and Edwin Keh, CEO of HKRITA, attended the ceremony where Dr Lee received the award from Mr Leung Chun Ying, chief executive of HKSAR.

The institute won the award for its Fabric Touch Tester , which can measure multiple physical properties of fabric specimens such as thermal transmission, bending, compression and surface friction in both warp and weft directions in one single trial. The system provides scientific measurements which can eliminate disagreement of subjective argument of fabric hand feel.

The fabric touch tester has many properties like physical testing is possible based on the neuro-physiological stimulus mechanism of fabric touch feeling, the instrument with an unique design and motor principle can make measurements of bi-direction testing at the same time, dynamic thermal properties testing by the instrument can bridge the current gap of the machines in the market and ensure comprehensive evaluation of fabrics, and testing duration is short and the programme interface is user-friendly.

Software with integrated prediction models is also designed to calculate touch feeling scores for fabrics. Industry can make use of the analysis data to develop a set of guidelines or product standards in terms of touch feelings for specified products. The tester will contribute to the development of a mature industry with objective measurements. (GK)
