Loepfe’s portfolio of quality control
solutions for the textile industry
Loepfe will be present at Hall 1
Booth C24, with a comprehensive portfolio of quality control
solutions for the textile industry and 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 to ensure an interesting visit to
the Loepfe booth for all visitors. New measuring results of the
highly precise YarnMaster ZENIT+ OffColor feature collected in
cooperation with a customer will be available for spinners. The
case study shows impressive 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 sees a similar growth in the
Asian market for reliable yarn quality control of latest
high-tech materials such as carbon fibers, monofilaments,
multi-filaments as well as spun yarns in all material
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 interesting
information. With Swiss precision, Loepfe works systematically
on its revolutionary laboratory test instruments.
The focus during the ITMA Asia will be on the YARNMAP which
provides a tremendous 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.
