Right fiber, right fabric – automatically

USTER offers a combined solution for nonwovens quality control

Nonwovens producers need their products to be flawless – but they know this objective takes some doing in practice. ‘Ordinary’ fabric inspection routines simply can’t deliver: only automated systems using high-performance spectroscopes are able to achieve the required standards, ensuring that quality is always significantly better. So, nonwovens manufacturers might be interested to hear first hand at the upcoming INDEX from the only provider of an effective fiber and fabric quality monitoring solution.


EDANA and INDA, the leading global nonwovens associations, recently issued the 2021 edition of their ‘Standard Procedures’ guidance for nonwovens and related industries. These authoritative documents aim to define, in technical terms, relevant products – including 107 individual test regimes. This special article covers a range of intermediate measures and test processes for spunlace and other nonwoven technologies – leading ultimately to products with top class designations.

Pure fibers only
Nonwoven materials can’t really be better than the fibers they are made of. But there is a real threat to the quality of nonwovens caused by contamination. Fiber cleaning is the solution and bundle size is the key detail: small contaminant particles can hide inside bigger bundles, making them especially difficult to locate when the material is more compressed. USTER® JOSSI VISION SHIELD N is ideally positioned in the line to overcome this, directly behind the fine opener. This ensures that the fiber bundles pass the spectroscopes in their most open state.


USTER® JOSSI VISION SHIELD N is the result of surveys, close collaboration with international nonwovens companies and countless hours of field tests. Installation is easy, since the fiber cleaner’s 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.

USTER® Q-BAR 2 – The formation monitoring system

Key people, key data

The introduction of the latest Mill Dashboard might seem like just another of many new features with USTER® QUALITY EXPERT. But this one can bring significant changes for operators in spinning mills. The new version of the Mill Dashboard presents key data directly to key individuals in the spinning mill, so they can react rapidly to any quality deviations. It also ensures greater transparency on the shop floor. 

The latest release of USTER® QUALITY EXPERT is available for connection – and all key quality parameters from laboratory and in-line instruments can be displayed, targeted to individual needs and preferences.
