Uster will present a combined solution to control contamination in nonwoven materials at Index 2020, in Geneva, Switzerland from October 19-22, 2021. The first of these is the Uster Jossi Vision Shield N solution that helps textile brands overcome small contaminant particles hidden inside bigger bundles of materials. The solution is a result of surveys, close collaboration with international nonwovens companies and countless hours of field tests.
The solution can be easily installed as its slim design fits perfectly into existing lines – and readily copes with the high output of standard production lines. For best detection results, the fiber cleaner is tuned to identify the typical contamination types in nonwovens, including colored fibers.
The built-in spectroscopes of Uster Jossi Vision Shield N operate on a much greater wavelength range. This enables detection of contamination within the ‘invisible’ range of infrared and ultraviolet light, and even contamination fragments of the same or similar shade as the fibers themselves.
The second solution launched by Uster is the EVS Fabriq Vision N, the nonwovens quality assurance system which ensures a consistently high rate of fault detection using automated inspection during the production process.
Uster EVS Fabriq Vision N enables seamless integration of an inspection system into any production process – and ideally into nonwovens manufacturing lines – detecting contamination, holes, irregularities and any other defect. Installation is simple and flexible: a fixture bar bridges the full width of the process line, holding as many spectroscopes as required for the application.
