More accurate and reliable tests
Microcomputer program control and advanced servo motor bring accurate positioning. The InnoFlex Bally Flexing Tester can automatically return to its original position and keep stable during the testing process to achieve more accurate and reliable tests.
Smart Leather Folding Endurance Tester
It can be connected with the SmarTexLab app installed in smartphones through WIFI, allowing test men to set parameters, monitor the testing process, and get alerts from the device on the smartphone, as well as share the test results in real-time.
Efficient and durable
12 workstations can be selected, and you can choose single station/multi-station mode. The running times of each mode can be counted separately, so you can test a variety of samples at the same time. The NSK bearings are from Japan, and the machine is made of precision mold-casting stainless steel, with a scratch-resistant appearance, and longer service life.
The actual noise is only 60dB, much lower than other similar products in the market. The operation interface is ergonomic, and the running data can be saved, even if a power failure occurs.

Frequently Asked Questions
It is a machine used to test the flexibility and durability of leather samples through repeated folding. It subjects leather to controlled bending to determine its resistance to cracking or breaking.
A leather sample is clamped or held at both ends. A movable plate/arm then folds the sample at a fixed bend point with a consistent force and rate of flexion. Sensors count the number of folds before failure.
- Folding endurance test – Measures number of double folds before cracking at a set bend radius and force.
- Flex cracking resistance – Applies flexing stresses to accelerate aging and determine cycles to crack formation.
- Tear strength – Introduces a controlled tear to find resistance to propagation.
Bend radius, flexing rate, flexing force – To simulate different conditions and acceleration aging.
Sample size/thickness – To accommodate different leather grades.
Temperature/humidity – For climate chamber testing.
Highly repeatable and consistent flexing for objective comparisons.
Tests perseverance of leather finish/coating under stress.
Predicts in-use flexibility and durability through stress testing.
Processes many samples faster than manual methods.
