Hallam, Australia -- IDM Instruments has introduced a new device to test and evaluate parts such as mattresses -- including innerspring, boxspring and foam -- as well as chairs, cushions and related products, the company said in a 5 March statement.
The Bedding Impact Tester uses a 79.5 kg weight which is dropped onto the test material, allowing comparison of results taken from impacts at different heights, IDM said. Also the user can choose any location of the part under test for the point of impact.
Computerised software is included in the package, the Australian test equipment specialist said. (RD)
