New:  Twist measurement (Sensor CS, OM and OH)

Spinners and yarn users know that twist is one of the most important parameters in producing a yarn. The twist level in a yarn affects the look and performance of the finished product. For 100 % cotton ring and compact yarns the USTER® TESTER 6 offers the unique option to get twist and twist variations (Tu) during the yarn testing routine at a testing speed of 800 m/min. Without any further effort, performance gaps like low speed spindles are identified, independent from the operator and saving additional test time in the laboratory.

New: Frequent occurrences measurement for conductive yarns (Sensor OM)

The unique measurement of USTER® Frequent Occurrences (FO) with Sensor OM allows the objective evaluation of conductive yarns. Analysis of neps, thin and thick places is vital in improving and guaranteeing quality of a yarn. USTER® Frequent Occurrences are available in 12 classes and can be measured at a testing speed up to 800 m/min. All important information at a glance.
