The Uster Group, the leading high-technology instrument manufacturer of products for quality management for the textile industry headquartered in Switzerland, is celebrating 70 years of operation of Uster Tester machine. Even in its earliest version, this remarkable instrument was a big hit with spinning mills, inspiring a new focus on yarn quality.

Further progress followed in the new millennium, the Uster Tester 6 setting standards even higher by introducing the Total Testing Centre – the gateway to integrated quality management of the complete yarn manufacturing process. For most textile professionals, there is really only one evenness tester, now fulfilling its destiny as the undisputed heart of the entire spinning mill.

Peter Hättenschwiler was a 20-year old apprentice, working in the precision engineering department of Zellweger Uster, a well-established and sizeable Swiss company producing a range of textile testing instruments. The year was 1948 and Zellweger, the forerunner of Uster Technologies, was ready to launch the world’s first yarn evenness tester, the Uster GGP, after four years of development.

Another significant milestone in evenness testing came with the launch of Uster Tester 3 at the Paris ITMA in 1987. ITMA visitors were impressed by the product design and unique features of the Uster Tester 3, which confirmed Uster’s position in the forefront of testing technology. The first hairiness measurement (H) was integrated in the instrument, enabling users to test evenness and hairiness at the same time.

Uster’s future-oriented vision and focus on customer needs has ensured that the innovative pace is continuous, reaching the summit of current technology with the latest Uster Tester 6. Starting with the brand-new digital Capacitive Sensor CS, the speed, range, and precision of measurements is greater than ever. A new hairiness length (HL) sensor combines with OH results to allow full control over yarn hairiness, while the OM for diameter variation, OI for dust and trash and FA for yarn fineness complete the extended test options.

Gabriela Peters, Uster’s product manager yarn testing, played a leading role in the creation of the latest Uster Tester 6, which was launched at ITMA in Milan in 2015. Uster Tester 6 incorporates the Total Testing Centre, for centralised analysis of data from connected Uster testing and monitoring instruments. This allows total quality management of the entire spinning mill.

These continuous outstanding developments underline Uster Tester’s status as a leading global brand. Uster Tester 6 has also added aesthetic acclaim to its high-tech excellence by winning a prestigious Red Dot Design Award in 2016. (GK)
