  • Coating automotive seat
  • Visual observation of the deformation undergone by the complex
  • Measure of strength and safety

The Trim-Test (developed by Faurecia seats) characterizes the behavior of a textile complex (eg coating of automobile seat) pleating due to its deformation.

The deformation is obtained by means of a half sphere and a hollow jig. The half sphere grows complex in the template pierced, causing its deformation. It is thus possible to perform visual observation of the deformations undergone by the complex.

For a complete evaluation, the unit has 5 different couples template/hemisphere, in order to achieve effects more severe. The different stages of the trial and the sensors (force measurement and security) are managed by PLC.

The actuator is activate by manual control to insure the security of the operator. Trim Tester without hemisphere and template. The TRIM-TESTER is delivered with five hemispheres and the five corresponding templates Holding needle
