Uster adds new features to Quantum 3 yarn clearer

Uster has introduced exclusive new features to improve fabric quality in a special version of the Uster Quantum 3 yarn clearer and thereby celebrates 50 years of yarn clearing on automatic winders.

“Only 300,000 of the new clearers are available, on a first-come-first-served basis from November,” the Switzerland based company said in a press release.

In line with the continuing global trend for higher quality, the Uster Quantum 3 Anniversary Edition includes extra defect classes, correlated to the Uster Classimat 5.

“These classes can be customised by users to cover specific faults that are no longer acceptable today and the clearers will then identify, remove and report on these defects,” Uster added.

According to the company, the Uster Quantum 3 incorporates unique innovations to help spinners achieve better yarn for better fabrics.

The Core Yarn Clearing option was developed for yarns used in stretch fabrics as these yarns have an elastane core within an outer sheath.

Unique Uster sensors automatically identify areas in the yarn where the core component is either missing or off-centre at a significant level and over long lengths, which enables a potential cause of fabric rejects to be effectively eliminated.

For fabrics made of mélange and coloured yarns, variations in colour and shade are critical and the advanced foreign matter sensor available with Uster Quantum 3 avoids such defects with its Shade Variation.

“Even very small divergences from the base yarn shade can be detected and cleared,” it informed.

As per Uster, hairiness variations in yarn can lead to a 'cloudy' appearance in finished fabric, and this is another quality factor secured by the Uster Quantum 3.

“These clearers incorporate online measurement of true yarn hairiness, so that outlier bobbins can be removed, while mills with linked spinning and winding can now monitor the condition of rings and travelers,” it explained.

A further advance with the Uster Quantum 3 is its connection to the Total Testing Center of the Uster Tester 6, which is facilitated by integration with the Uster Quantum Expert 3 data collection and analysis system.

Information from the winding machine is combined in the Total Testing Center with accurate laboratory data.

This is then interpreted to present management with practical improvement advice and spinners can create their own tailored quality network, extending the analysis options as new instruments are connected.

“The resulting data can be targeted to provide valuable knowledge, such as predicting exactly how a yarn will perform in weaving,” Uster observed.

The connection between the Uster Quantum 3 and the Total Testing Center enables a total overview of mill operations, while the analysis of the data will guide to better quality fabrics. (AR)
