About Us

Take me directly to Range of services

The company TEXTECHNO Herbert Stein GmbH & Co. KG was founded by Mr. Herbert Stein on April 1st, 1949 in Mönchengladbach, Germany. In more than 60 years of history the company has developed to one of the leading manufacturers of testing instruments for the textile and man made fibre industry. As a result of excellent reliability, innovative design and unique technical features, TEXTECHNO’s instruments are playing an important role in the quality control of the textile and manmade fibre industry.

Innovative technology, outstanding quality of manufacture, high productivity, and reliability in service are the key features of all TEXTECHNO products. The scope of supply includes fully-automatic testers for linear density, tensile strength, elastic properties, fatigue, shrink, crimp, interlace, friction, entanglement, imperfections, evenness, hairiness and fibre length as well as drapability. Besides the above scope of supply, TEXTECHNO also provides turn-key laboratory solutions for textile companies from one source, which include consulting, layout conception, installation, technical training and after-sales services.

TEXTECHNO is an internationally operating company, sales agents and service stations can be found in more then 60 countries worldwide. Furthermore TEXTECHNO is operating a sales office in Chemnitz, Germany, to serve the east European and former USSR countries market. In 2004 TEXTECHNO has taken over LENZING INSTRUMENTS in Lenzing, Austria.

LENZING INSTRUMENTS was founded in 1965 and started its business with the production of tensile- and linear density testing equipment for staple fibres. In the following years a wide range of quality testing instruments for staple fibres and filament yarns have been developed. A new field of activity is the online measurement (OLM) for the production of filament yarns, staple fibres and nonwovens.

This line of instruments will further be completed in the future.


At the Techtextil 2015, in Frankfurt, Germany, TEXTECHNO Herbert Stein GmbH & Co. KG, the experts for quality control systems, will be present to introduce new testing instruments for industrial fibres, yarns and fabrics.

The STATIMAT 4U is an automatic tensile tester for high-tenacity yarns with a force measuring range up to 5.000 N. Special features are heavy duty clamps with patented automatically operated bollards and a rotary clamp to apply a twist to the yarn prior to tensile testing, suitable for aramide and UHMPE (Ultra-High Molecular weight PolyEthylene) yarns.

COTTONSCOPE HD is the world's first automatic rapid image analysis system to measure fibre diameter of snippets from 0.5 to 50 microns. Measuring up to 20.000 fibres per minute, it provides measurements of mean diameter, distribution of diameter, length distribution (<0,5 mm), mean curvature and distribution of curvature.

A further highlight is the new automatic drapability tester DRAPETEST. This instrument TECHTEXTIL 2015 – Online Präsenz allows to automatically characterize drapability and the formation of defects during draping and forming. The tester combines the measurement of the force, which is required for forming, with an optical analysis of small-scale defects such as gaps and curls by means of image analysis. An optional sensor can determine large-scale defects such as wrinkles.

You will find TEXTECHNO on a common booth with their subsidiary company LENZING INSTRUMENTS (Austria) as well as the Hochschule Niederrhein (University of Applied Sciences) in Hall 3.1, booth 39.
