Uster to make one millionth Uster Quantum 3 yarn clearer

May '17
The Uster Group, the leading high-technology instrument manufacturer of products for quality measurement and certification for the textile industry, is set to produce its one millionth world-leading Uster Quantum 3 generation of yarn clearers. The Group provides testing and monitoring instruments, systems, and services for textile production.

The latest version of the Uster Quantum 3, which offers new features targeting intelligent quality management at specific, fashion-oriented applications. Pioneering concepts such as Smart Limits and the Yarn Body, have made the clearer an attractive choice for more than thousand mills worldwide, and the introduction of the Uster Quantum 3 anniversary edition in 2015 has increased that appeal significantly.

Spinning mills need to act fast to take advantage of important fashion trends. But yarns which hit the spot in terms of aesthetic appeal must also meet the exacting quality standards required in certain of these specialised applications. The latest edition of the successful Uster Quantum 3 yarn clearer addresses both these demands, thanks to new features which allow spinners to deliver yarns which are on-trend and also on-quality.

Core Yarn Clearing and Colour/Shade Variation are unique innovations which put spinners in control of quality and avoid claims and complaints in important applications such as stretch denim and sportswear, and in the newly-fashionable market for mélange and subtly-coloured yarns.

The Core Yarn Clearing feature with Uster Quantum 3 is the first-ever automated solution to monitoring and assuring the quality of yarns with an elastane centre encased by a cotton or synthetic outer. Fabrics with stretch and fancy slub effects created in this way continue to be extremely popular in both fashion items such as denim jeans and in functional garments and sports clothing.

Common problems when producing these yarns can occur when the inner elastane component is either missing or positioned off-centre within the wrapper element. The Core Yarn Clearing feature uses powerful sensors and algorithms to detect any such problems and ensures that downstream customers receive a stretch yarn which perfectly meets their specifications. Using the built-in Smart Limits facility, the correct tolerances can be set quickly and easily, so that any bobbins containing core defects are blocked and removed.

The new Shade Variation feature of the Uster Quantum 3 overcomes several potential problems which can lead to unacceptable colour and shade differences. This is particularly important for spinners operating in the growing market for mélange and colour-effect yarns. Here, human error can cause bobbins of differing colours or shades to be accidentally mixed in a single yarn lot. Today, latest technology in the Uster Quantum 3 and its Shade Variation (SV) facility provides a separated clearing channel which deals specifically with colour deviations. (GK)
