Fabric Weighing Scale Kit
This popular textile scale is designed for the specific purpose of weighing cloth (textiles) in grams per meter squared, with an accuracy of one hundredth of a gram (0.01 g)
Weighing textiles is hard to do, as typically it comes in rolls or various swatch sizes... this cutter and scale combo provides a standard to compare against. GSM (Grams per Square Meter) is a standard for weighing textiles... measuring the weight of a known area of fabric.
Here is how it works: The manual rotary GSM cutter has a four razor blade design, and cuts a diameter of 4.442 inches (113 mm) from your textile sample. The outcome is a sample of your fabric that is exactly 100 sq centimeters. This equates to 1/100th of a square meter. The scale converts the weight of the actual sample, to the uniform weighing unit known as GSM. (Grams per square meter).
This kit comes with everything you need. Just bring your swatch, cut it, weigh it, and the WT2002TC Textile Scale tells you GSM of that sample. EASY.
Replacement blades, cutters, pads and power cord available ( see recommended accessories below).
**A note about CAPACITY: The capacity of this balance is 200 grams. NOT 200 gsm. Since the sample is much smaller than one square meter, the applied load of the sample will be much less than the GSM value of that sample. This kit will be able to handle the sample weight of even the heaviest denims or neoprenes without a problem.
If you need higher capacity consider the PMWTC
or the PBWTC
