The latest edition of USTER’s TESTER 6 features QUALITY EXPERT digital functionality to support integrated data-based improvements throughout the spinning mill, connecting and interpreting information from a range of different instruments. In the latest release of USTER’s TESTER 6, Sensor OM technology measures Frequent Occurrences (FO) in yarns and analyzes neps, thin and thick places, yarn evenness, diameter, density and shape – all vital quality parameters for conductive yarns. Meanwhile, twist can be measured as a simple by-product of yarn testing for 100 percent cotton ring and compact yarn – giving producers information about all relevant parameters as part of one laboratory procedure.
Measurement data from USTER TESTER 6 correlates with USTER® STATISTICS global benchmarks. Available in an app for iOS, Android and Windows 10, the new app version 1.4 features an enlarged database of the most popular yarn styles, 100 percent cotton, compact yarns for knitting applications, extended FAQs, and enhanced readability.
