Uster Technologies has expanded its full range of quality solutions for primary textile production, following the successful integration of automated inspection systems from EVS (Elbit Vision Systems). On April 25, 2018, Uster announced the acquisition of EVS, a world-leading high-technology supplier for automated vision inspection in the textile industry.

The expansion of capability means Uster is unique as the world’s only supplier of high-tech instruments for quality monitoring and management in spinning, weaving, knitting, finishing and nonwovens. The three EVS systems for vision-based fabric inspection are now presented under Uster branding, Uster said in a press release.

The EVS fabric inspection systems are now presented under the Uster brand, with new names: Uster EVS Q-BAR (fabric quality monitoring system), Uster EVS FABRIQ VISION (fabric quality assurance system), and Uster EVS FABRIQ SHADE (fabric shade optimisation system). They also have a new look – the distinctive and award-winning dark-red and grey Uster design – confirming the identity of the fabric inspection systems at a glance.

Automated inspection from Uster delivers major benefits for fabric producers. The three solutions provide both quality assurance and optimisation of fabric yield in the final product. The high-tech inspection technology means fabric producers depend less on human judgment and can produce consistent, reliable quality.

In the mill, the Uster approach starts with the principle of avoiding off-quality at the earliest possible stage. Here, the Uster EVS Q-BAR detects faults during manufacturing, preventing long-running defects. This early control reduces material losses and removes the need for manual inspection after production. It’s the basis for constant and reliable quality, enhancing the mill‘s market competitiveness.

For optimum quality, a consistently high rate of defect detection is required. Uster EVS FABRIQ VISION ensures reliable monitoring, using automated control during intermediate and final inspection – eradicating the need for manual inspection. The system’s ability to capture any visible defects allows fabric yield to be optimised and prevents claims.

For dyed fabrics, colour consistency is vital – from beginning to end and from side to side of a roll, as well as between different rolls of the same lot. Uster EVS FABRIQ SHADE monitors shade variation in almost any process where colour is critical. It allows fabric producers to deliver a constant shade in the end product, preventing second quality and keeping customers satisfied.

Uster EVS FABRIQ VISION and Uster EVS FABRIQ SHADE also provide a number of options for improving process efficiency, while also optimising fabric yield. Features such as the infrared marker, the cutting-table control, and the laser pointer underline the superior technology of Uster systems.

Uster is the world’s only supplier of quality solutions for the textile industry from fibre to fabric. With EVS, Uster strengthens its portfolio in process monitoring and quality management for weaving, knitting, finishing, and nonwovens. (GK)
