Lunometer Automatic Fabric Density Counters (KFG-2231)

The Lunometer ® is a transparent vinyl plate containing a high precision sequence of lines corresponding numbered graduations. When placed over woven or knitted material, it produces a measurement pattern that enables the Lunometer® to provide an accurate thread count; the number of warp and filling yarns in a square inch or centimeter of fabric. Using available daylight and/or artificial light, a thread count is quickly made by moving the Lunometer® over the fabric until the measurement pattern is seen. At the point where the waves converge, a circular or oval shaped image appears, as in the illustration, indicating the thread count.

Did you know... A fingerprint weighs about 50 micrograms. We know, we weighed it! The residue left from a finger can actually make a difference in weight results which is why we wear gloves when we calibrate weights. For reference, a sheet of paper is about 4.5 grams, that’s 4.5 million micrograms.
Did you know… Cross Company has grown significantly since our start in 1954. Over the years we've acquired 26 companies! Today, our five groups have expertise in everything from industrial automation to precision measurement, and industry knowledge going all the way back to 1939.
