How It Works
The Instrumar Fiber System gives you unprecedented insight into your operation’s fiber production and quality.
Now you can detect fiber defects when they happen, monitor your entire production anywhere in your plant and transition your lab from spot checks to investigating specific problems with directed, intelligent testing.
The Instrumar Fiber System enables you to identify issues in yarn quality while it is being processed. The fiber sensor, installed on manufacturing equipment from any OEM, enables continuous real-time quality monitoring and allows for immediate intervention by your plant staff.
With just one small electromagnetic sensor mounted on each threadline, powered by Instrumar’s sophisticated analytics software, the Instrumar Fiber System gives you detailed insight and control over your production like never before.
Simple and intuitive dashboards communicate real-time production metrics at a glance, in an easy-to-understand graphical format.
From the plant floor to the executive office, our graphical displays work with any screen – stationed or mobile. The Instrumar Fiber System can even works with your existing sensors, allowing you to import and display their data as well!
The Instrumar team is committed to achieving the efficiency and sustainability goals of our clients. With the Instrumar Fiber System, your processes are leaner, you have fewer customer quality claims, and your product is more sustainable.
The traditional lab testing process is time-consuming and less accurate than Instrumar’s intelligent sensors. And, because the system is working while the yarn is in process, your production staff can intervene before the defects even happen.
The Instrumar Fiber System gives you unparalleled, plant-wide insight and control over your operations. See the benefits of real-time quality management and how it can transform your fiber production!
THE INSTRUMAR FIBER SYSTEM PROVIDES A WIDE RANGE OF FEATURES AND A HOST OF BENEFITS AT ALL LEVELS OF YOUR ORGANIZATION – FROM THE PLANT FLOOR TO THE EXECUTIVE OFFICE.
The Instrumar Fiber System is suitable for a range of fibers and their weights. Our technology has been refined through decades of in-plant experience, monitoring a variety of man-made fibers from 20 – 6000 dtex.
Our sensors are made with durable aluminum housings and industrial-grade components that have been designed for (and proven) in harsh plant environments. Operating under high yarn tensions, speeds, and abrasive polymers, our sensors are also well suited for recycled feedstock. Some of our Instrumar sensors have been in operation for 20 years!
SELF-CLEANING & LOW MAINTENANCE
Instrumar sensor elements are continuously cleaned by the fiber running over them, eliminating the need for scheduled, manual cleanings. Signal intensity remains constant throughout the life of the sensor.
Flexible Installation Locations
A discrete (7cm x 7cm) sensor footprint means the Instrumar Fiber System can be installed in a variety of locations – even those tight, hard-to-reach spaces – on machines from any OEM.
The Instrumar Fiber System works on a “plug-and-play” principle. Individual sensor units can be easily and quickly swapped out in the rare event of failure, with quick rebooting to minimize machine downtime.
INDUSTRY STANDARD COMPONENTS
The Instrumar Fiber System uses Devicenet communications protocol and standard industrial controllers commonly employed by fiber plants around the world.
