The test results are more accurate and reliable.
By using SmartShrink, the test sample is photographed with a high-deﬁnition camera, and the distances between the marked dots are automatically measured, then
shrinkage rate is calculated with a unique algorithm, yielding all test results in real-time accurately.
Save $30,000/year for textile testing labs.
The test results and photos of the fabric shrinkage sample can be saved, and the shrinkage rate can be real-time shared with the factory quality department or buyers since the SmartShrink Shrinkage Machine can be connected through Wi-Fi with SmarTexLab App installed on the smartphone and computer.
Output multiple data at one time, reﬂecting the quality of fabric more comprehensively and objectively.
Warp and weft shrinkage, seam twist rate, vertical twist rate, and diagonal twist rate can be output at one time, including credibility rating for the test results. It can evaluate the quality of the fabric more comprehensively.
Famous brands are using SmartShrink.
International brands and authoritative testing institutions such as Anta, Adidas,Texwinca and ITS have widely used SmartShrink. Can be connected to ERP or LIMS system. The test results can be directly uploaded to the factory’s ERP or laboratory LIMS system.
SmartShrink can help you manage shrinkage test data conveniently and efﬁciently.

Frequently Asked Questions
A shrinkage rate testing machine is used to objectively measure the shrinkage percentage of fabrics under specified conditions of temperature, time and load/tension.
It works by clamping a fabric sample and suspending it in boiling water or another shrinkage solution for a defined period, then measuring the sample before and after to calculate shrinkage rate.
Main types are drum/jet machines for natural shrinkage, and those coupled with washing/drying functions to simulate care procedures.
Samples are secured, submerged in the solution, removed and dimensions re-measured to determine percentage change in length and/or width.
Key features include precision measurement, controllable conditions, reproducibility and full documentation of test parameters and results.
Machines from reputable manufacturers can achieve over 95% accuracy when calibrated and operated properly.
Some can also test properties like pilling, dimensional stability and thermal properties.
A shrinkage test cycle takes 30-60 minutes typically.
