Loepfe To Show New Yarn Quality Control Solutions At ITMA:
Loepfe Brothers Ltd., manufacturer of sensors and monitoring equipment for yarn spinning and fabric weaving processes, is set to display its new range of quality control solutions for the textile industry at ITMA + CITME Asia 2016, to be held at the National Exhibition and Convention Centre, Shanghai, China, from October 21- 25, 2016, in booth H1B28.
For the very first time in Asia, the company will inform about the developments in the new LabMaster series. The series consists of measurement devices FIBERMAP, YARNMAP and LabMaster TOP. FIBERMAP measures all fibre-related parameters and delivers the complete fibre profile throughout the whole preparation process of the spinning mill, from bale to finisher sliver. It provides data of standard classing measurements and also measures process-relevant parameters like neps, seed coat neps, trash, and stickiness.
The YARNMAP enables a synchronised measurement of the most relevant yarn properties, like count, evenness, hairiness, and strength. The new management cockpit LabMaster TOP completes the series. It integrates all LabMaster devices into one central data management system. By delivering value-added reports directly on the management’s desk, it is an efficient tool for quality management in the spinning mill.
Loepfe will also present the new yarn clearer generation YarnMasterZENIT+, which utilises state-of-the-art technology, fastest processors, and measuring technology. This extremely reliable product safely detects even the finest yarn irregularities. The new yarn clearers and additional features like nep cluster channel, off-standard bobbin detection, and improved foreign matter detection, enable a 100 per cent online quality control in the spinning mill.
The new online data management system MillMaster TOP, that monitors and analyses the quality data from Loepfe yarn clearers, will also be displayed. The modern software can collect, visualise, and analyse quality data from up to 7,200 spindles in real-time.
For open-end spinning applications, Loepfe will show YarnMaster 3N1. The yarn clearer combines three sensors: an optical sensor for diameter measurement, a F-sensor for detection of foreign matter, and a P-sensor for detection of synthetic foreign matter like polypropylene.
The company will also display the new WeftMaster Falcon-i optical yarn for weaving mill applications. The sensor can detect and eliminate smallest knots, fluff or even filamentation from the weft yarn. It can work with monofilament or multifilament yarns and is insensitive for yarn colour. It is also suitable for high performance yarns such as glass fibre, aramid, carbon, and others. (GK)
