MSA have been made aware of a SECOND COPY softness gauge being manufactured by a company in Taiwan called MYETECH (Ming Yu Electron Tech Information Co., Ltd) and marketed as the MY-300 (see image below).
Companies relying on the MSA ST300 Softness Tester as part of their quality control systems will experience variations in results from suppliers, or other departments, if they are using the Myetech unit. This will ultimately cause many problems for end manufacturers of leather products.
