Jossi Vision Shield 2 cleans with least loss of good fibre
Uster Jossi Vision Shield 2
According to Uster, the new Uster Jossi Vision Shield 2 can deliver the dream, with its advanced technology for clean cotton with minimum loss of valuable good fibre.
“Contamination-free yarn is a key quality objective, but effective cleaning of cotton fibre has often meant wasting too much good cotton at the same time,” Uster said in a press release.
“With Uster Jossi Vision Shield 2, fibre cleaning and yarn quality assurance has taken a major leap forward in terms of both detecting power and efficiency,” the Swiss company added.
“It is the result of joint development work after the acquisition of Jossi Systems AG by Uster Technologies AG in 2013,” it stated.
The advanced sensor know-how and software expertise of Uster has been allied to Jossi's detailed experience in fibre cleaning, to create a value-adding innovation.
The unrivaled detection capabilities of the Uster Jossi Vision Shield 2 come from new sensors and the Powerful Imaging Recognition Technology (PIRT).
This is a sophisticated image analysis technique perfected by Uster as the smallest particle of contaminant will be picked out, helped by sophisticated image recognition.
“The greater sensitivity of the system has already proven its effectiveness in trials, recording significantly improved detection of polypropylene, a common contaminant in raw cotton,” Uster explained.
Uster further added that the effectiveness of the Uster Jossi Vision Shield 2 is further enhanced by its positioning in the blowroom line, directly after the fine opener.
Due to its compact dimensions, requiring less than one metre of width, it fits perfectly where other fibre cleaning models cannot, regardless of the blowroom equipment brand.
This location is a major advantage as the cotton tufts are in their most open state, right after the fine opener, so contaminants cannot escape detection by the PIRT sensors.
The new Efficiency Booster feature manages fibre cleaning to deliver better quality, with lower waste.
Sivakumar Narayanan, head of marketing for Uster Technologies said, “We know that spinners want to be on the safe side when it comes to contamination control.”
“At the same time, they don't want to waste good cotton when applying tight fibre cleaning settings and the new Uster Jossi Vision Shield 2exactly solves this problem,” he too added.
In fibre cleaning, different tuft densities can lead to false ejections and wasted cotton; however the new Efficiency Booster counters this by providing an accurate view of the whole tuft, so that denser tufts are ejected only when they contain real contamination.
“The system creates a fingerprint of a clean cotton tuft, as the basis for matching and retaining good tufts,” the company noted.
Spinners at every market level can gain major benefits through the Efficiency Booster as in the highest quality segment, fibre cleaning settings can be set to even tighter tolerances, without increasing waste. (AR)
