USTER ZWEIGLE HL400

The USTER® ZWEIGLE HL400 measures hairiness length, so spinners can forecast how a yarn will look and perform downstream. Its sensitive measuring system focuses on protruding fibers in the yarn.

Overview

Yarn hairiness impacts on many aspects of fabric quality for various textile end-uses. The USTER® ZWEIGLE HL400 hairiness tester takes the globally-established ‘S3’ Hairiness value to a new level. It now operates eight times faster than previously – at  400 m/min – with improved accuracy.

Features

  • Displays the number of protruding fibers in seven different length categories.
  • Integrates with the USTER® TESTER 5 and its OH hairiness sensor to cover every hairiness testing requirement.
  • Tests any type of staple yarn.
  • Self-calibrates, to prevent operator error.
