Loepfe debuts Falcon-I sensor to monitor yarn defects

Textile machinery manufacturer Loepfe has launched Falcon-I sensor for monitoring an individual yarn for finest knots, fluff, filamentation, smallest thick places or even capillary breaks.

According to a Loepfe press release, the newly developed Falcon-I sensor is installed, either before or after the weft feeder.

It also adds that the thread can be monitored by using sensitivity levels, to be set manually or automatically.

Loepfe says that automatic mode determines the sensitivity level itself as the sensor is insensitive to vibrations which can be disturbing, especially with laser measuring devices, and may cause false stops.

“When contamination is severe, the sensor can also be installed ‘Upside Down’ which allows most reliable and constant monitoring,” it informs.

The thread is guided virtually contact-free through the optical measuring field by yarn guides before and after the sensor and a stop is triggered for defined faults.

“The colour of the thread to be monitored also has no influence on measurement reliability,” the Switzerland based textile machinery producer informs.

Loepfe further informs that it is possible to monitor the latest high-tech materials, threads like carbon, without problems with the Falcon-I.

Monofilaments, multifilaments as well as spun yarns in any material composition can be processed and conductive materials can also be processed without restriction.

The housing of the sensor is made from shielding material so that any existing static or electromagnetic fields will not affect measurement reliability.

The Falcon-I sensor is microprocessor-controlled and therefore provides many options for connection to evaluation modules.

Loepfe says it is today a global leader in manufacturing optical yarn clearers for automatic winding machines and that many years of experience have enabled the development of the new Falcon-I sensor.

According to Loepfe, the Falcon-I not only complements various available knotless weaving concepts, but can also be used in many different processes down the textile production chain. (AR)
