Fabrics makers will already be familiar with the successful, industry-proven solutions Uster EVS Q-Bar, Fabriq Visionand Fabriq Shade, which today are used worldwide to inspect upwards of 60 million metres of fabric per day. At ITMA in Barcelona, in June, Uster Q-Bar 2 and Uster Fabriq Expert have been launched and explained to show visitors.
For fabrics manufacturers, the competitive nature of the textiles market means that reliable quality is a requirement, and defects are unacceptable to their customers. Uster Fabriq Expert and Uster Q-Bar 2 aim to support textile mills in guaranteeing the delivery of the desired roll quality, using the best technology available for monitoring and improving production at the earliest-possible stage.
That includes locating any defects quickly, supporting identification of the root causes and initiating corrective action. The expertise of EVS technology – with intelligent visual detection and fault-recognition algorithms – is now enhanced by Uster’s overall experience in quality management systems for the wider textiles industry, the company explains.
Uster Q-Bar 2 represents the next generation of the original on-loom monitoring and inspection system, offering user-friendly design and operational improvements for weaving. An inspiring Uster design built on years of EVS experience brings many advantages, including indication of the defect location, and better access to make maintenance tasks easier.
The Uster Q-Bar 2 is positioned immediately behind the reed on each machine. This means the operator can respond quickly to alarms and stop signals, to correct problems immediately and prevent quality issues from continuing, thus minimising material waste. A red LED guides the operator to the exact position of defects, and lights at the side of the unit show system status.
