USTER® QUALITY EXPERT: Impressive
throughout the mill
At Matesa, both shop floor and
top floor benefit from comprehensive analysis.
Trusted information is crucial when
decisions have to be made and solutions found. In the spinning
mill, production efficiency and business profitability depends
on reliable data measurement and sophisticated analysis.
Translating that into practical advice makes life easier for
every level of management. That’s why USTER® QUALITY EXPERT has
become indispensable at Matesa Textiles in Turkey.
With eight yarn factories comprising
120,000 spindles and 10,000 rotors, it’s clear that a spinning
company on this scale needs quality data to be handled
automatically. Laboratory results and in-line data from winding
must be centralized and then analyzed. “USTER® QUALITY EXPERT
has become an essential helper to us,” says Buket Çelebi, Head
of Yarn Facilities at Matesa.
It’s a high-pressure job, working for one
of the biggest textile brands in Turkey. Achieving an output of
140 tons of yarn per day, performance optimization and cost
reduction are permanent challenges to manage. “I trust practical
analysis and interpretation of combined data as offered by USTER®
QUALITY EXPERT. It goes beyond mere data collection and supports
me towards targeted improvements in each aspect of yarn
production, throughout the mill,” says Çelebi.
“I’m convinced connecting to USTER®
QUALITY EXPERT is the route to effective decision-making and
preventive process optimization in textile mills.” Her opinion
is supported by the list of USTER® laboratory and in-line
systems linked to the USTER® QUALITY EXPERT. Connecting all
spinning processes makes everything transparent and comparable.
“We take advantage of the full-scale mill analysis, which can
identify quality and productivity trends, working proactively to
prevent faults and foster improvements,” says Çelebi.
