HKPU honors SDL Atlas with Partnership Award

Release Date 06.15.12Subscribe RSS

SDL Atlas was awarded the Distinguished Knowledge Transfer Partnership Award by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (HKPU) on June 14, 2012. The award is presented to companies to recognize accomplishments in transferring their technology and expertise to the local business and industrial sectors.

SDL Atlas and the HKPU Institute of Textile (ITC) have been working together since 2000 to develop innovative projects in the area of Textile Moisture Management. Through support from Professor Li Yi from HKPU, SDL Atlas developed the Moisture Management Tester (MMT) which measures the dynamic liquid transport properties of knit and woven fabric in multi-dimensions. The MMT is a unique testing machine, offered only by SDL Atlas, which is used in the research and development stage to track the movement of moisture through a textile. By understanding liquid moisture management properties, garment manufacturers can develop clothing that is both more comfortable and more functional than ever before.

Chuck Lane, President of SDL Atlas, accepted the award from Professor Timothy Tong, President of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Lane said of the award, “It is our great pleasure to have the opportunity to work with Prof. Li Yi and his team to bring this innovative testing technology to the textile and related industries. From an idea in the lab to a commercial product with its established testing standards, and well accepted in the industries, all these processes cannot be successful without the strong professional support from Prof. Li & his team. That’s a valuable experience for all of us, and we are looking forward to working with HKPU on similar projects.”

The SDL Atlas Group of companies offers the largest range of textile testing equipment, supplies, consumables and services available from a single source. The goal of SDL Atlas is to provide customers with the most complete solution at the best value.
