Loepfe, a manufacturer of sensors and monitoring equipment for yarn spinning and fabric weaving processes, will present its portfolio of quality control solutions for the textiles industry at ITMA Asia, which will be held in Shanghai next month. The company’s presentation will include the well-known YarnMaster Zenit+ for winding and the WeftMaster Falcon-i for quality control of high-tech materials.

Various innovative solutions in different areas of yarn quality control will be shown. New measuring results of the YarnMaster Zenit+ OffColor feature collected in cooperation with a customer will be available. The case study shows results in detection of shade variations in polyester.

The increasingly popular yarn defect sensor WeftMaster Falcon-i will also be displayed. After the growing demand noticed from North America, Loepfe says it sees a similar growth in the Asian market for reliable yarn quality control of latest high-tech materials such as carbon fibres, monofilaments, multi-filaments as well as spun yarns in all material compositions.

The optical yarn defect sensor removes smallest knots, fluff, filamentation, thick places and capillary breaks before being interwoven into the fabric. The sensor is being used more and more for safety-critical applications such as fabrics for airbags, tire cords, filtration materials, architectural fabrics and sailcloth where quality requirements are very high.

The Laboratory Solutions corner will also provide information. Loepfe works systematically on its laboratory test instruments. The focus during the ITMA Asia will be on the Yarnmap, which is designed to provide an increase in yarn testing efficiency with regard to time, space, maintenance and operator attendance. All kinds of short and long staple yarns are tested fully automatically while, at the same time, preparation products of the spinning mill can be tested on a second measuring sensor.
