Loepfe Brothers Ltd., manufacturer of sensors and monitoring equipment for yarn spinning, has completed 19 years of partnership with Ibrahim Fibres Limited (IFL), a Pakistani firm that develops and exports polyester staple fibre and blended yarn. Zafar Iqbal Rana, the general manager of IFL, talked to Joerg Mueller, sales manager Loepfe on the occasion.

Talking about the challenges faced by IFL, Zafar said, “IFL believes that nowadays cost-effectiveness and market competitiveness are the two key factors for the growth of any organisation. Overall, we can say that the lack of digitalisation and modernisation of plant equipment is the fundamental factor for crises in Pakistan Textile Industry.”

Zafar said, “By adapting to modern equipment and techniques as well as the advanced philosophy at IFL, we are able to satisfy our customers with valued products while maintaining cost-effectiveness in operations. Moreover, IFL is also working purposely towards Industry 4.0.”

Discussing on how Loepfe will be useful for Pakistani cotton, he said, “With no doubts, modern markets are concerned and highly sensitive about the quality of products. In such situations, contamination in Pakistani cotton is nothing less than a nightmare for the spinners. Despite the integration of automatic contamination sorting machines in opening and cleaning lines, foreign matter are still making their way up to the winding process. Therefore, it is indispensable for us to include optical based foreign parts detection sensors of Loepfe within our winding process.”

On talking about the benefits of working with Loepfe, Zafar said, “IFL believes that, as a leading manufacturer of optical yarn clearing systems, Loepfe is not only efficient in dealing with all types of yarn faults but also provides vital information regarding the yarn produced with precisely tailored reports which in turn leads to optimisation of the entire process.”

“Being a leading blended yarn manufacturer, we know that the optical yarn sensors made by Loepfe are less affected by TDO (Titanium dioxide) which is present in the polyester fibres. Apart from all the technical product features and benefits, quick and easy access to support and service are also key factors enhancing the productivity of any plant,” he added.

Discussing about the Loepfe yarn and mill monitoring systems impact to enhance IFL yarn quality, Zafar said, “Consistent yarn quality with minimum defects has always remained a prime requirement of customers. For this reason, IFL always believes in using the latest quality control equipment on its machines.”

“IFL believes that the detection and removal of yarn faults regardless of critical conditions and the unique foreign parts detection & removal technology will surely serve to fulfil our commitments. In this regard, standard reports from the MillMaster TOP system are quite helpful in terms of quality monitoring. Here, we compare the data in both tabular as well as graphical format,” he added.
