Uster unveils Tensorapid 5 & Tensorapid 5-C yarn testers
The Uster Group, a leading high-technology instrument manufacturer of products for quality measurement and certification for the textile industry, has announced the launch of fifth generation of the Uster Tensorapid 5 for staple yarn and the Uster Tensorapid 5-C for filament yarn. The new testers deliver accurate and effective tensile testing performance.

Operating according globally-accepted standards for both staple and filament yarn parameters, the Uster Tensorapid 5 is a universal strength and elongation tester, with a testing speed that is steplessly adjustable between 50 and 5000 mm/min. With a 500 N or 1500 N measuring head, the instrument covers the complete range of force and elongation testing, including all known tensile test procedures.

The Uster Tensorapid 5 has an automatic function with the capability of handling 40 samples. In case of a problem during feeding, the test continues and the customer has the option to repeat the missing position at a later stage. This ensures a high sample throughput, user friendliness and test efficiency. The Uster Tensorapid 5 is configured for ergonomic sample preparation on the side which makes it fastest and most convenient for the operator. Vertical yarn guides allow for user-friendly operation. A limit editor shows the essential information, focusing on exceptions and outliers –ideal for presenting the most important details at a single glance. Customised reports and long-term reports are in line with the well-known Uster Tester 6 user interface.

Integration of results with Uster Tester 6 allows users to profit from intelligent alarms through the total testing centre. Smart reports integrate results from both evenness and tensile tests, providing an overview of the quality being produced. This enables fast reaction by the quality manager, to minimise complaints. The result is a complete mill quality system, integrating data from fibre, yarn, and tensile testing procedures, both in the laboratory and in-process from the Uster Quantum 3 yarn clearers.

The Uster Tensorapid 5-C is tailored specifically to high-precision filament testing, incorporating unique software covering the essential quality factors of strength and elongation. Information about the first break of a filament helps spinners guarantee high speeds in subsequent processes. The determination of yield point and natural draw ratio particularly help POY yarn producers to reduce claims. (GK)
