USTER QUANTUM 3 Anniversary Edition

The USTER® QUANTUM 3 Anniversary Edition is packed with valuable new and well-established features for optimized yarn quality.

On the 50th anniversary of the first yarn clearer for automatic winding, USTER is launching a special edition, limited to 300,000 clearers, available on a first-come-first-serve basis.


Smart Limits for splice distribution

Smart Limits with the USTER® QUANTUM 3 Anniversary Edition automatically check that clearing limits are aligned with splice distribution. Alarms indicate possible problems, for better quality and winder efficiency.

Core Yarn Clearing

Core yarn produced with sections of missing or off-center elastane is a serious problem, potentially causing huge waste of fabric downstream. Core Yarn Clearing uses unique USTER® sensor combinations to identify significant problem areas with the core component. The Core Yarn feature is only available with the Foreign Matter option.

Connecting to the Total Testing Center™

The latest USTER® QUANTUM EXPERT 3 builds the link between USTER® QUANTUM 3 Anniversary Edition and the Total Testing Center of USTER® TESTER 6. This combination provides a total mill overview. Quality exceptions can be traced, based on integrated data from the clearer and all other processes. For example, USTER® QUANTUM 3 information can be combined with laboratory test data to predict the weaving performance of a yarn.
