In the realm of textile production, accuracy plays a paramount role in ensuring quality and consistency. Therefore, it is imperative to test textiles accurately for grammage, as this measurement serves as a crucial indicator of fabric weight and density. By meticulously examining the grammage of textiles, manufacturers can ascertain if the desired specifications are met, enabling them to deliver products that align with customer expectations. To make it easy for the manufacturers to conduct grammage test on the materials, we at Presto has designed a high-quality lab testing instrument known as digital GSM balance.  This quality testing equipment has been designed to test the grammage of materials accurately and ensure that quality materials will be delivered to the customers.

In this blog, we are going to discuss brief information about the Presto grammage checking kit and why it is important to test the grammage of textiles. So, let us get started!

Importance of testing grammage of textiles

A grammage test, also known as basis weight testing, is a crucial measurement used in the textile industry to determine the weight or mass of a fabric or textile material per unit area. It is typically expressed in grams per square meter (g/m²). This test provides valuable information about the density and thickness of the textile material.
Grammage measurement serves as a crucial indicator of fabric weight, enabling manufacturers to determine its density and overall quality. Accurate testing allows meticulous monitoring throughout the production process, ensuring consistency in material weights and preventing any deviations that may compromise durability or performance attributes.
By meticulously measuring grammage at every stage – from raw materials to finished products – manufacturers can guarantee uniformity in their textiles' weight distribution, leading to reliable end results appreciated by consumers worldwide.
Digital GSM balance designed by Presto offers a more accurate and user-friendly solution for measuring fabric GSM and ensures that high-quality products will be delivered to the customers.
Now, let us discuss a brief about Presto's digital weighing balance.

Working of GSM weighing balance

The textile industry has long relied on the use of GSM balances to measure the weight of fabric. Digital GSM balances offer a more accurate and user-friendly solution for measuring fabric weight. These balances utilize advanced sensors to accurately weigh fabric, and they also feature an easy-to-use interface that makes them simple to operate.
To test the GSM of fabrics, you can easily follow the steps mentioned below:
  • When you want to take the GSM of a fabric, then you need to place it on a hard surface and cut it with the help of a GSM cutter.
  • After that, you can easily measure the weight with the help of a weighing balance.
  • Once you weigh the sample on a weighing balance, then you will find the weight values to be grams per square meter.
  • After getting the value, you can simply multiply it by 100 and obtain a GSM of a fabric by using the cutter.
By following these steps, you can accurately calculate the GSM of fabrics.
