In the fabric industry, the manufacturers need to take care of several aspects of the material for delivering accurate products. These aspects include thickness, flexural rigidity, drape, air permeability, and other similar properties. The fabric with lower bending rigidity will be lightweight. Thus, with these aspects, GSM is also considered to be one such parameter in determining the weight and quality of fabrics. Thus, you easily measure the value of GSM with the help of Testronix weighing balance. This testing instrument will consist of a stable weighing plate that will help you in precise calculations. Here in this blog, we are going to provide you with brief information about Testronix weighing balance and how does this testing instrument helps in finding GSM value.

Introduction about GSM weighing balance

The GSM or grams per square meter is considered to be the fundamental property of the material that helps in determining the product quality. The weight parameter of the fabrics should be controlled during the manufacturing process in order to avoid any economic loss. You can easily measure the GSM value of fabrics with the help of a GSM weighing balance. This testing instrument is an essential part of the grammage finding kit and it helps in the accurate measurement of GSM.

Firstly, the fabric sample will be cut precisely with the help of a GSM round cutter. This circular cutting equipment consists of a cutting pad and a robust cutter. One can start the sample cutting test with this testing machine, then you need to release the safety pin by putting slight pressure on the handle. It will bring internal blades in contact with the sample. The specimens will be cut by rotating the handle under pressure.

Once you take out the specimen, then you can put it on the GSM weighing balance. At the time of measurement, make sure that the weighing balance should be properly labeled. Multiply the value shown on the GSM weighing balance display with a factor of 100.

In this way, you can get the GSM value of the specimen.

Features of GSM weighing balance

As we have discussed above that the GSM plays a very important role in determining the strength and quality of materials. Thus, you can make use of GSM weighing balance and round cutter, in order to find an accurate value of GSM. Here we have created a list of features you will get with the GSM weighing balance.

  • Easy to operate
  • Lightweight
  • Comes with a digital screen
  • Highly accurate
  • Consists of an airproof hood/cover
  • Stable weighing plate for precise calculations

These are some amazing features you will get with the use of this testing equipment. Now, let us focus on its technical specifications.

Technical Specifications of GSM weighing balance

  • Weighing balance capacity /least count: 200 g/ 0.01 g
  • Linearity: +/- 0.01 g
  • Calibration weight: 200 g
  • Pan Size (Weighing balance): 120 mm
  • 220 V power supply
  • Accuracy: 0.01gm

These are the technical specifications of this testing instrument. You can easily calibrate this testing instrument with 200g brass weight by following the below-mentioned steps:

  • Press the Tare key.
  • Long press CAL key, the first display will show CAL, then it will show blinking 200 g
  • Put 200 g brass weight over the Pan and once the value on the display gets stable press the Cal key one time.

In this way, you can easily test the weight of the specimen. If you find any difficulty in using this testing instrument, then you can give us a call at +91 9313140140 or email us at We will surely assist you by providing the needed information.
