The total package of major advantages of USTER® TENSOJET 5 is the industry’s ultimate tensile tester, being a key element in the growth of a spinning mill’s profitability.
USTER® has launched TENSOJET 5, in which the concept of tensile testing extends to provide a total package with precise measurement of the yarns strength, reliable protection against quality claims based on the performance forecasts in later processes.
A yarn should be able to withstand downstream processes without any compromise in efficiency and no stops. High speed knitting and weaving exert the greatest stress and strain on the yarn, whatever the fabric application maybe. So the strength and elongation characteristics must be suitable for fabric making process as well as application and end use which requires tensile strength values.
Weave-ability and profitability
USTER® TENSOJET 5 operates at a speed of 400 m/min and integrating with the Total Testing Center, delivers a new range of overall benefits to both quality assurance and profitability for yarn manufacturers. It performs 30,000 tests per hour predicting weak places in the yarn.
Total Testing Center: the claim-free system
USTER® TESTER 6 integrates results from both evenness and tensile tests providing results of the quality being produced. Through connected laboratory instruments data analysis allows fast decision-making, guaranteeing customer satisfaction with the yarns being delivered. The Total Testing Centre thus aims to provide a ‘claim-free’ system for yarn producers.
Clear visualizations of weaving performance is provided in the form of objective grades by results of USTER® TENSOJET 5 and USTER® QUANTUM 3 strength testing and yarn quality parameters respectively. The weaving performance information is then ranked on a scale from one to five Qs (grades), allowing spinners to identify batches with a high risk of yarn breaks during weaving.
