USTERâ€™s Think Quality approach now takes in automatic fabric inspection, bringing much-needed precision and security to demanding technical textiles applications â€“ and to all weaving mills where quality matters. Quality standards everywhere are increasing all the time: in sectors such as the automotive industry, zero-defect levels are already mandatory. Applications such as airbags, headliners, upholstery and tire cords require flawless quality, continuously. But there are also many other textile industry segments that must fulfill the expectations of demanding customers. In todayâ€™s production environments, automated quality solutions are essential.
Automation: for trust and profitability
USTER offers two systems, ensuring that fabrics meet the quality standards required to protect fabric makers and finishers from costly claims and damaged reputations. Both systems also add valuable extra benefits. The USTERÂ® Q-BAR 2 fabric quality monitoring system prevents waste, while the USTERÂ® EVS FABRIQ VISION fabric quality assurance system significantly improves the first-quality yield for all applications. USTERÂ® Q-BAR 2 and USTERÂ® EVS FABRIQ VISION make a real impact on the business success of users â€“ a fact confirmed in numerous installations worldwide. Across a range of different applications and businesses, these users share a common verdict: automated solutions for fabric inspection have earned their trust.
Quality and minimum waste
USTERÂ® Q-BAR 2 is attracting attention through its elegant and slim design, developed for simple installation on existing weaving machines. It represents the latest generation of on-loom monitoring and inspection systems, offering operational improvements for weavers. Positioned directly above the reed on each machine, USTERÂ® Q-BAR 2 is ideally located for the earliest detection of fabric defects. This allows the operator to respond quickly to alarms and stop signals. Correcting problems immediately prevents quality issues from continuing, minimising material waste.
USTERÂ® Q-BAR 2 categorises and saves fabric faults, creating a â€˜defect mapâ€™ for each roll, which can be recalled and reviewed later via the intuitive touchscreen. The system offers different classification possibilities and allows rolls to be categorised according to number, size and position of defects, as well as customer criteria. It also grades rolls automatically. In summary, USTERÂ® Q-BAR 2 reduces the need for post-weaving inspection for most applications.
