Employ Uster Technology expertise to optimize yarn quality
Feb '08
As most of the world's textile production capacity has shifted to Asia, inefficiencies along the textile supply chain seem to have grown in proportion to the distances involved. That makes it tougher than ever to ensure that material supplies are up to required quality standards at every stage of the production process.

Uster Technologies has identified significant quality costs at almost every step of the textile value chain – in total equal to more than 10% of the final sale value. And these costs are especially damaging if they arise from problems at the start of the process, in yarn spinning. They can result in expensive end-products having to be scrapped or graded as seconds.

Today, more and more companies are acknowledging that they have to become closely involved in the quality assurance of their entire supply chain. They realize that it is vital to control quality, right back to the spinning process. The quality achieved there has a massive influence on the economics of the end-product.

Poor quality in yarns can be attributed to several causes, which can be classified in two main groups:
• Insufficient quality management systems in the spinning mills, which are simply unable to produce reliably at consistent quality levels
• Failure of the yarn buyers or users to specify the precise yarn and fiber quality parameters required for the subsequent production steps and the product end-use

For many years, USTER has been assisting all kind of textile companies -- from yarn spinners to retailers -- to address issues caused by poor-quality yarns and fibers and thus reduce quality costs sustainably.
