Uster introduces Tester 6 at DTG 2016

Switzerland based Uster is introducing the Uster Tester 6 at the Dhaka International Textile & Garment Machinery Exhibition (DTG) which began from January 28, 2016.

Pahartali Textile & Hosiery Mills Ltd (PTHM) is supporting Uster in presenting the new Uster Tester 6 and is among the earliest customers for the tester and who has already reported that advantages have exceeded expectations.

“At the launch at ITMA in Milan, the new Uster Tester 6 received a very positive feedback, so we are eager to show this latest Uster innovation at more shows,” Sivakumar Narayanan, head of marketing within Uster said.

Explaining the reasons for adopting the Uster Tester 6, Mahbubul Alam, COO of PTHM said, “It was clear from the beginning that our laboratory must be equipped with Uster fibre and yarn testing instruments.”

“The company already uses Uster HVI 1000, Uster AFIS and Uster Autosorter in its quality management regime and we were seeking to replace the Uster Tester 4, installed in 1998,” he added.

“What at first seemed like an upgrade requirement has now opened up a whole new world of yarn testing,” Alam observed.

“The testing speed of 800 metres per minute is already an appreciated improvement but the advantages arising from the Total Testing Center have exceeded our expectation regarding this investment,” Alam noted.

According to Uster, the Uster Tester 6 is the gateway to the Total Testing Center, in which its precision laboratory data is interpreted by the Uster Quality Expert software.

“It is then integrated with information from yarn clearers to provide a complete picture of spinning mill operations for the entire production volume,” the company also explained.

As per Uster, analysis of this data by Uster Quality Expert is the key, examining all quality parameters to guide spinning mills towards fact-based decisions on improvement actions.

“The scope of these features expands as further Uster instruments are linked to the system,” the Swiss company too observed.

Innovative extra support for management comes in the form of Assistant Q, an intelligent helper service which has been likened to recruiting a new staff member with 65 years of Uster know-how.

“Part of the Total Testing Center, Assistant Q simplifies complex issues and takes over repetitive tasks, so managers can concentrate on the wider goals,” the company noted.

The Uster Tester 6 incorporates a hairiness technology, which combines Sensor HL and Sensor OH and evaluates the vital hairiness parameter at high-speeds.

“Together with the established Sensor OH, spinners now have a complete hairiness analysis, giving the best possible assurance against quality claims,” Uster stated.

A number of novel features have also been introduced in the Uster Tester 6 for rapid fault-tracing and quality management, with all designed to minimise downtime and optimise quality in both yarns and fabrics. (AR)
