Uster unveils new textile fibre cleaning system
The Uster Group, a leading high-technology instrument developer of products for quality measurement and certification for the textile industry, has launched the new Uster Jossi Vision Shield fibre cleaning system. The cleaning system will help nonwoven manufacturers highest quality of textile products for medical, personal care, and hygiene applications.

Typically, fabrics for these sensitive applications are made by the spunlacing process, which starts with the fibre raw material in loose stock form. This is where it is crucial to remove any contaminants, before they reach the fabrication process. The Uster Jossi Vision Shield fibre cleaning system is the solution. It provides maximum detection of contaminants with minimal waste. Located in the ideal position, after fine opening in the blowroom, the system uses latest-technology spectroscopes to pinpoint even the smallest particles of foreign matter in the cotton or man-made fibre raw material.

Covering a much wider wavelength than conventional camera systems, Uster Jossi Vision Shield has the power to identify and remove fragments as fine as a single human hair. At this stage in the fibre preparation routine, detection is enhanced, since the fibre tufts have the optimum opening to prevent any small contaminants being hidden inside them.

Once identified, the foreign matter pieces are automatically ejected by the system, preventing contamination of the spunlaced fabric. Some waste here is inevitable, but Uster Jossi Vision Shield controls this by continuously measuring the speed at which the fibre tufts pass through. It then uses precision valves to time each ejection perfectly, so that only the unwanted contaminant is removed, with an absolute minimum of good fibre being lost. The cost savings for the producer can be significant.

Uster Jossi Vision Shield gives spunlace producers the confidence and security to avoid quality issues in this demanding marketplace. Its technology can cope with both IR and UV light ranges and it can reliably detect various types of foreign matter. All kind of synthetics and even the finest scraps of white polypropylene – otherwise difficult to pick out – are efficiently removed, using the Uster Jossi Magic Eye in tandem with the Uster Jossi Vision Shield.
