The 5th European Conference on Protective Clothing (ECPC) is being held May 29-31 in Valencia, Spain. Hosted this year by AITEX Research Textile Institute, in association with the European Society of Protective Clothing (ESPC), the symposium serves as a forum for dissemination, exchange, and discussion of the results from research, development, and implementation efforts related to personal protective clothing, with a strong focus on protective properties and the well-being of the users of protective clothing.
Measurement Technology NW representatives Sugimoto Hideyo and Hiroyuki Kajioka, from IDS Japan, visited the company last week to discuss sales activities within Japan and to receive training on proper operation, service, and support for customers of our SGHP-8.2 sweating hotplate with integrated chamber.
Measurement Technology NW, founded October 15, 1986, designs and manufactures precision biophysical instruments for evaluating the thermal comfort of textiles, garments, protective apparel, seats, beds, and dynamic thermal environments such as aircraft, truck, and automobile interiors. Our company’s growth into the thermal comfort testing industry began in 1988, with delivery of a Thermal Hand manikin system to USARIEM (United States Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine) which was used to test gloves and protective handwear for soldiers.
As our blog readers may recall from past postings, Measurement Technology NW has a much-appreciated tradition of “celebrating the wins” by hosting lunch for employees whenever a new thermal order has been completed and shipped off to the customer. However, the 110% team effort that was behind our first Flame Test Manikin and Burn Chamber shipment (to Donghua University, Shanghai, China) called for something more than your typical in-house lunch.
