Swiss textile-testing and quality-control monitors Uster Technologies has introduced its newest USTER® TESTER 6 model, featuring new sensor technology and other features aimed at right-first-time textile production. For the first time, spinners benefit from a built-in Knowledge Based System and data about twist.
The new USTER TESTER 6-C800 features purpose-designed sensors, providing higher accuracy and reliability. It also offers several new features to assist filament quality monitoring. A unique automatic twist scan facility makes twister settings easier. Measurement results for CVm—a percentage level for evenness–are presented as easy-reference graphics, with diagrams, spectrograms and histograms providing inert and half-inert values, as well as cut-length results.
USTER’s Knowledge Based System enables users to quickly trace the cause of quality problems on the spinning machine, without the need for extra settings or input from the machine supplier. A single click on the spectrogram display brings up the defective component on the screen. Designed-in ergonomics make it simple, even for untrained operators, to address any potential quality issue. The USTER TESTER 6-C800 also features graphical user interface, with an intuitive touch-screen monitor.
