History – Since 1899…

The eminent scientist, Dr. Charles B. Thwing, founded Thwing Instrument Company in 1899. Mr. Edward J. Albert joined him shortly thereafter forming Thwing-Albert Instrument Co.

Under their leadership, Thwing-Albert developed a complete line of physical testing instrumentation that research laboratories and quality control departments throughout the world confidently rely on. This line includes instrumentation to test physical property characteristics such as tear strength, coefficient of friction, peel strength, thickness, tack, handle, viscosity, compressive strength and burst strength. Thwing-Albert’s most popular Universal Testing Instrument, the EJA-1000/2000 was named in honor of Mr. Albert and his efforts in the field of quality control education.

Since the introduction of the first tensile tester, Thwing-Albert has taken advantage of technological advancements in order to provide the industry with some of the most sophisticated instrumentation available. With the introduction of the first microprocessor-based tensile tester in the late seventies, and with continuous improvements based on cutting edge technology, Thwing-Albert has maintained its leadership position.

In addition to our role in the development of instrumentation, we have also worked closely with ASTM, ISO and TAPPI in the creation of testing standards.
