Uster, the Switzerland based high-technology instrument manufacturer of products for quality measurement and certification for the textile industry, has introduced five new and improved systems for quality-minded spinning mills, at the ongoing international textile machinery fair ITMA 2015 in Milan.

'Managing a spinning mill with quality in mind' is the unique Uster concept behind the launch of five new systems—Tester 6, Jossi Vision Shield 2, Sentinel, Quantum 3 anniversary edition, and Tester 6-C800, the company said in a press release.

The total testing centre Uster Tester 6 represents an enormous leap forward in this renowned instrument series. Setting new standards in evenness testing, it works with greater accuracy and reliability than ever, at a test speed of 800 m/min.

Specially-developed sensor technology in Uster Tester 6 is future-proved for extended capabilities. The system allows spinners to prevent quality claims, flagging potential problems with its product consistency alert, customised for the specific materials and conditions in each mill.

The combination of accurate laboratory testing data with information from online monitoring of 100 per cent of production is a huge breakthrough. Tester 6 incorporates the Uster Quality Expert management tool, creating the brand new Total Testing Center. Spinners can build their own tailored quality network, to analyse and optimise performance. Each new instrument extends the possibilities as it connects to the network, offering features such as predictions of fabric appearance, pilling resistance and weaving performance.

New sensors and sophisticated image analysis are at the heart of the Uster Jossi Vision Shield 2 – the ultimate defense against cotton contamination. The system can locate and remove the smallest particle of contaminant with class-leading detection of both coloured and white polypropylene and other synthetics, the company said.

The new Efficiency Booster with Uster Jossi Vision Shield 2 transforms fibre cleaning into complete waste management. The result is better quality, with much less waste – a massive benefit to the mill's bottom line. It works by creating an accurate 'fingerprint' of a clean cotton tuft, and matching detections against this, to ensure that only contaminated cotton is actually ejected, even when dealing with the densest tufts.

The new Uster Sentinel, the successor of Uster Ringdata, offers full-scale optimisation of the entire ring spinning process – the core of yarn manufacturing. With intuitive reports on every parameter influencing end-breaks, Sentinel has the full story about ringframe performance. Clear visuals highlight exact reasons for breaks, prompting fast and easy problem-solving.
