Fabric Cutting and Weighing Kits
Fabric cutting and weighing kits are essential to determining whether your textiles meet quality expectations. Our Textile Weighing Kits consist of a cutter to measure a small sample of fabric paired with a scale which is programmed to measure the exact sample size in Grams/Meter Squared (GSM) or Oz/Sq Yd - no calculations necessary!
Summit Measurement offers 2 different systems for fabric weighing.
Our most popular choice is the WT2002TC Textile Scale with cutter. This fabric scale comes with a manual rotary cutter, laboratory quality textile balance and cutting pad - everything you need to determine the GSM of fabric. The scale and cutter are intended for use together, not for mixing with other scales/cutters. This system is recommended for lighter use and regular weight fabrics. The textile cutter contains 4 small blades, and cuts with a twisting motion as you turn the cutter.
The JA KING Fabric Yield System includes an SASD-688 cutter, 100 cutting pads (CP362) and a scale that is programmed to work with the cutter in a variety of custom configurations you can choose from. You can buy the cutter or the scale separately, but it should be noted that they are programmed to work together so should not be mixed with other scales/cutters. The KING Fabric Yield System is ideal for heavy use, frequent or daily fabric cutting, or heavy or delicate fabrics. You can choose configurations that vary from grams/sq meter to oz/sq yard and for cutting 1 sample or 8 samples (by folding the fabric) at a time. You can also choose English or Metric blade. The textile cutter blade consists of a single, complete die and operates with a punching motion.
