Uster is displaying two new features of the Uster Tester 6 and total mill optimisation through the Quality Management Platform at ITMA 2019, in hall 6, booth D201. The leading textile and garment technology exhibition is being held from June 20-26, 2019, at Barcelona, Spain. Uster is the leading provider of quality management solutions from fibre to fabric.

The new feature includes the facility for measuring conductive yarn through the Frequent Occurrences (FO) feature of Uster Tester 6, and the high-speed assessment of twist and twist variation as part of a single yarn testing routine. Uster Tester 6 hosts Uster Quality Expert, the ultimate digital solution for integrated data-based improvements throughout the spinning mill, connecting and interpreting information from a range of different instruments in the unique Quality Management Platform, according to a press release by the company.

Conductive yarns have become more important in the past decade in fast-growing markets such as protective wear, fitness clothing, and healthcare. Manufacturers of protective clothing in particular need to deal with public institutions and tenders. In this competitive environment, the supplier’s reputation is crucial – and it depends largely on consistent quality to avoid costly claims. Until now, it has not been possible to measure the quality of conductive yarns – a real issue for spinners in this field. Uster stepped up efforts to include measurement of conductive yarn in Uster Tester 6. Sensor OM is now used to measure Frequent Occurrences (FO) in these yarns. It analyses neps, thin, and thick places, yarn evenness, diameter, density, and shape – all vital quality parameters for conductive yarns.

The manual and often subjective measurement of twist has been regarded by spinners as a task to be avoided if possible. But the twist level in a yarn is a critical quality parameter that affects both the look and performance of the finished product, as well as the productivity level, so spinners would benefit from integrating twist in their normal testing routine. Now, this important parameter can be measured as a simple by-product of yarn testing for 100 per cent cotton ring and compact yarn – giving producers’ information about all relevant parameters as part of one laboratory procedure.

Uster Tester 6 is the only yarn testing instrument on the market with the option to obtain Twist and Twist variation (Tu) data during yarn testing, at a speed of 800 m/min. This information enables spinning mills to react quickly to identify performance gaps such as low-speed spindles. Developed by experts in the technology department of Uster, these innovations extend the capabilities of Uster Tester 6 still further.

Measurement data from Uster Tester 6 correlates perfectly with Uster Statistics global benchmarks, essential for every yarn producer or trader. Available in an app for iOS, Android and Windows 10 since October 2018 – it is already one of the most successful apps in textiles. Now the new app version 1.4 is in app stores – with an enlarged database of the most popular yarn styles, 100 per cent cotton, compact yarns for knitting applications, extended FAQs and enhanced readability.
