Uster Sentinel – The ring spinning optimization system
Detecting faults at source with Uster Sentinel has enabled Ibrahim Fibres to extend the quality and performance benefits from ring spinning right through to the winding stage with Uster Quantum clearers. This is making a great difference to both quality and productivity across the mill.
End-break downtime in spinning has reduced by 80%, while clearer cuts at winding are 19% less than previously. Overall winding efficiency is up by 1%.
Mr. Muhammad Zafar Iqbal, General Manager of Textile Plant 4, says Uster Sentinel makes its operators’ lives easier too. They are guided logically to each break, instead of having to patrol monotonously. This means the operators are working more efficiently. Already they have been able to optimize operator assignment, increasing the work area of each by 35% after only a short time – and expect this to reach double the original level in future.
