Device augments leading system’s 3D presentation while saving customers thousands
(PETACH TIKVA, ISRAEL, JULY 01, 2009) OptiTex, the leader in 3D CAD software for all cut-fabric industries, is about to release its Fabric Testing Utility (FTU). The FTU was designed to further advance the OptiTex system’s vibrant ability to recreate the dynamics of fabric movement on fully adjustable, lifelike virtual mannequins.
“Our new FTU is a remarkable tool in that it not only enhances our industry-leading technology, it also saves our customers thousands of dollars in the long run,” states Ran Machtinger, President and CEO of OptiTex, Ltd. “Now, OptiTex users can test fabrics in house rather than use a costly, time-consuming external service.”
OptiTex’s FTU is a lightweight, briefcase-sized device that accurately measures the four principal types of fabric strain: Bend, stretch, shear and friction. The machine has an automated repeat function to validate the measurements. As with all OptiTex products, the FTU was designed to provide the user-friendly experience that OptiTex customers have come to expect.
“OptiTex has always maintained a strong customer focus, marketing products that are easy to use and provide significant financial advantages via quick ROI, decreased time to market and elimination of fabric waste. Developing the FTU is a natural step in this process as it reinforces all three avenues of saving money and time.”
