Fiber Applications

The Instrumar Fiber System is helping a range of fiber producers produce better, more profitable fiber for a variety of applications, and is making them a better supply partner for end customers and brands across the globe.

PROVEN PERFORMANCE

The Instrumar Fiber System is suitable for a wide range of fibers and weights. Our technology works seamlessly with a variety of fibers from 20 – 6000 dtex. The powerful analytics software and actionable alarms can be customized to track only the production metrics and critical information important to your unique fiber production. Our customers have benefited from substantial reductions in expensive customer claims and extensive labour savings associated with maintaining yarn quality.

“WHEN I’VE GOT INSTRUMAR RUNNING, I CAN’T CREATE ANY BETTER PRODUCT THAN THAT.”

carpet applications

The Instrumar Fiber System efficiently detects common production problems that lead to inconsistencies including poor tack, lost (or low carbon) antistat filament, worn or contaminated components (e.g. airjets), winder problems and operator errors.

Additional machine data signals can be integrated to detect problems such as dosing levels, yarn tension, etc.

INDUSTRIAL applications

The Instrumar Fiber System accurately and immediately detects filament migrations caused by string-up errors, doffs and can even notice migrations that occur during winding but which can self-correct inside the package – making them undetectable in the lab or by differential weigh.

Raw material conversion is significantly improved by detecting quality problems immediately and continuous machine positional efficiency metrics help pinpoint poorly running positions in need of maintenance.

TEXTILE applications

The Instrumar Fiber System accurately and immediately detects the most common problems that lead to dye inconsistensies and machine downtime due to positional breaks. Our textile customers deploy their Instrumar-equipped texturing machines for their most critical, value-added products (such as automotive fibers). By doing so, some have completely eliminated expensive lab testing on critical end-use products that had previously required checks on every package.

recycled feedstock

Our highly robust sensors and thread-guides are proven to withstand the abrasion from recycled materials. The IFS is able to quickly and accurately identify common issues with recycled feedstock like blown filaments, meaning less costly line breaks.

Our flexible and dynamic algorithms help you assess and record acceptable percentages of recycled feedstock for each unique product or even by individual customer order.
