Yarn Package Hardness Tester

The HP models accurately measure the winding density of textile bobbins, beams, spools, spindles, cones, quills, dye packages, rolls, etc.


 Constant-pressure indicating system assures uniform test pressure eliminating false readings due to differences between operators
 Supplied in a foam-fitted carrying case.
 Operation is as easy as pressing the spring-loaded knurled aluminum shell down to the red line.
