Uster quality seal proves to be a business asset for mills

The Uster Group, the leading high-technology instrument manufacturer of products for quality measurement and certification for the textile industry, has announced that the Usterised brand has been accepted as a business asset for spinning mills and creates a global circle of excellence, certifying the top-level standards of quality management.

Started in 1967 and expanded 10 years ago, the program requires spinners to meet stringent technical specifications and implement efficient processes for quality yarn production. Today, there are 68 Usterised certified spinning mills worldwide, 21 of which have held the accreditation for 10 years or more.

During 2016, nine more spinning mills successfully passed the audit process and earned the Usterised certificate. Each candidate for membership has to undergo a detailed and extensive examination of its quality management systems. Comprehensive preparation is needed before starting an Usterised application. Uster provides support to the spinning mills throughout, with training courses and visits from specialists to support the mill, ahead of the Usterised certification audit.

To carry out the audit, experienced textile experts assess the mills’ quality management systems. They will recommend improvements in quality processes and consistency and guide spinners towards ongoing analysis routines. Customer feedback is that these audit procedures are a valuable service in themselves, providing deep insights into quality management and overall mill management needs.

Recent trends confirm a growing demand for higher quality and at the same time consistent quality yarn from downstream users in the textile chain. The Usterised quality seal supports this by assuring that certified spinners are capable of meeting this requirement on a continuous basis. The bar is being raised and the criteria for Usterised membership are progressing accordingly.

Usterised candidates must also focus on important details such as a regular sampling plan and the use of yarn quality profiles, as part of the quality management process. To demonstrate suitable customer-oriented systems, spinners will need to work with yarn quality profiles for selected articles, as well as produce test reports using Uster statistics percentile values for their standard yarns.

The Usterised certificate must be renewed regularly. But, unlike some other programs, this requires mills to do more than simply prove again their original quality management standards. At each subsequent audit, Usterised spinners need to show evidence of continuous improvements, which also includes updated testing and monitoring technology. (GK)
