Uster Group relaunches LVI family for fibre testing
Sep '17
The Uster Group, high-technology instrument manufacturer of products for quality measurement and certification for textiles, has relaunched its Low Volume Instruments (LVI) with upgraded electronics and design that play an important role in the industry today, providing essential lab test solutions for companies focused on specific fibre parameters.

For many mills, the Uster LVI family includes instruments, which each cover a particular aspect of fibre quality, with absolute reliability: the Uster LVI 930 length tester, the Uster LVI 960 colour/trash tester, the Uster LVI 975 micronaire tester, and the Uster LVI 920 nep tester provide measurements describing these various cotton quality parameters, while the Uster LVI 940 serves as the control system and data manager.

Even though their key characteristics can be described as “small, slow and affordable”, all LVI instruments show the same accuracy in measurement as the flagship models – because all measurements are based on the Uster HVI and Uster AFIS principles. The re-launched LVI instruments now feature refreshed electronics and an updated design. The Uster LVI 940 introduces even more novelties, connecting the other LVI instruments through a new software package with expanded reports, new diagnostics, calibration, and data storage.

The Low Volume Instruments also serve as the entry point for customers to join the Uster family at an affordable price. Starting with Uster’s unique ‘Think Quality’ approach, spinners are equipped to move up the profitability chain step by step with every additional instrument, towards further control of quality throughout the mill processes.

Whether cotton is classified using LVI or HVI models, the important thing is that the classification takes place. Cotton marketed with no quality tag is regarded as low quality and not to be trusted – and the price suffers accordingly. The benefits of cotton classing are equally valuable to both spinners and traders. Spinners need to get the most out of their purchased raw material with a smart cotton mix. For the right decision on this, proper quality parameters are necessary. The fact that the raw material is the biggest cost factor in a spinning mill is itself justification for investment in an Uster LVI. (GK)
