Solving pilling issues with Value Module mill analysis
Even world-class yarn producers like Nahar Spinning Mills Ltd are not exempt from the difficulties created by external market and commercial conditions. In recent times, the rising prices of raw materials, as well as some actual shortages, have created real challenges. In this environment, manufacturing costs have increased. At the same time, falling market prices for yarns have added to the pressures on all spinners.
That’s where some specific solutions prompted by the Quality Management Platform from Uster have been instrumental in improving detailed – but significant – aspects of the company’s production processes.
Nahar Spinning Mills, located at Malerkotla in the state of Punjab, India, has top-rated spinning and R&D facilities, as well as a fully-equipped laboratory with latest instruments, including Uster Tester 6.
Uster Quality Expert has been a key element in maintaining quality consistency for Nahar. Unit Head Mr. Mukesh Rustagi (General Manager), mentions particularly the importance of the system’s ready-made and easy-to-use database, which automatically enables quality comparisons based on both inline and laboratory data.
“Trend monitoring is just a click away.” he says. “The Quality Management Platform helps us trace and track quality deviations in the fastest time, which is vital in avoiding unnecessary losses.”
The Value Modules provided through Uster Quality Expert have driven insights into critical issues such as pilling analysis, in which the Yarn Prognosis module guided notable improvements. As a result production of B-grade yarn was minimized and the confidence of key customers was enhanced by the assured yarn quality levels being delivered.
