Footwear Materials

Specification


William Lamb Footwear is one of the UK's leading footwear distributors. A test system was required to measure and ensure that the footwear and its components passed quality standards set out by their end-customers. This meant the system would be performing a number of different tests using both SATRA and BS test methods. These included pull tests on shoe straps and flip-flop toe posts, as well as measuring the pull-off forces for sequins and other embellishments.

Solution


Mecmesin supplied a MultiTest 1-x, 1000N loadcell and a number of textile testing fixtures, including a specially designed sandal test fixture. This fixture holds samples securely in place, whilst a tension test is performed on straps and fixings to the required standards. The MultiTest 1-x system enables William Lamb Footwear to pre-program different test routines and store them for use as and when needed. One such program involved holding a tensioned attachment on a child's shoe for 90 seconds in order to guarantee it complied with BS EN 71 Part 1 for Child Safety.

System


  • MultiTest 1-x (The MultiTest 1-x has been superseded by the MultiTest 1-xt)
  • XLC 1000 N loadcell
  • Sandal Test Fixture and other Textile Fixtures

Testimonial


‘We use the MultiTest-x regularly, approximately 40 hours every week. It continues to be reliable and saves us money by enabling us to do tests in-house. Mecmesin were able to offer advice regarding fixtures and designed an ideal solution for our testing needs, which remained competitively priced.’

Tony Freeman, William Lamb Footwear

A Brand You Can Trust

"The MultiTest 0.5-i is a very good and reliable machine and the Emperor™ Software brings great advantages. It’s a very useful tool for these kinds of tests. It’s fully programmable and offers an in-depth analysis of results. It’s a precious tool for everybody involved, especially those who work with plastics and their mechanical performance"
