Uster's Jossi fibre cleaning system gains popularity
Mar '17
Uster Technologies, a leader in textile testing and quality control, has announced that its Jossi Vision Shield fibre cleaning systems have become a huge hit among yarn spinners for protection against contamination. The importance of the nonwovens sector for Jossi systems will be shown at INDEX 2017 event in Geneva from April 4 to 7, 2017 in booth 4418.

The Jossi fibre cleaning systems have completed a total of 3,500 worldwide installations. The Uster Jossi Vision Shield solutions are highly effective at removing even the smallest contaminants, including polypropylene. For nonwovens producers, however, the risk of contamination is possibly even greater: in medical and hygiene applications, for example, quality standards are super-critical and zero contamination is essential.

Contaminated yarn is one of the spinner’s biggest headaches, potentially leading to customer claims and rejects when synthetic particles such as polypropylene (PP) remain undetected in cotton until the fabric reaches the dyehouse. Today, the range of Uster Jossi systems is proven to deal with this problem with unbeatable effectiveness, detecting and removing foreign matter from cotton at the spinning preparation stage.

The Uster Jossi Vision Shield 2 and Uster Jossi Vision Shield T systems, using multiple detection principles, eject all polypropylene particles, in a minute. The finest white PP contamination is reliably and efficiently detected with the Uster Jossi Magic Eye in combination with the Uster Jossi Vision Shield. Practically all types of foreign matter, including polypropylene and polyethylene, are eliminated by Uster Jossi Magic Eye with a minimum of waste.

Manufacturers of nonwovens for demanding end-uses, now require an efficient contamination control system, guaranteeing a zero-tolerance standard– for defects bigger than 1mm – in their products. In nonwovens, fibre cleaning is the only way to control contamination – unlike in spinning where yarn clearing can make a final check at the winding stage. Product quality in nonwovens, therefore, depends absolutely on the efficiency of the fibre cleaning system.

Oswald Baldischwieler, product manager fibre cleaning within Uster Technologies said, “Japan is growing as a market for Uster fibre cleaning systems, thanks to these nonwovens applications. The combination of Uster Jossi Vision Shield and Uster Jossi Magic Eye supports the manufacturers to control contamination continuously at a high level.” (GK)
