Fabric producers need to guarantee reliable quality, which requires a consistently high rate of defect detection. Uster EVS Fabriq Vision ensures this is achieved by using automated control during intermediate and final inspection. The system’s ability to capture any visible defects allows fabric yield to be optimized. Real-time process monitoring detects, records and locates all defects in every roll of fabric. Fabriq Vision is able to capture any visible defect, at line running speeds. It can be used in a variety of positions on most manufacturers’ machines. Inspection is objective, accurate and consistent. The automatically generated defect map serves as the basis of improved fabric.
Uster EVS Fabriq Vision provides real-time alerts for operators, showing all defects and automatically creating roll inspection charts. All detected faults are collected in an album for review. Here the operator can quickly mark faults and select those which can be deleted. Users can set their own quality standards for different types of fabric and increase the efficiency of the grading process.
Information on process and product quality, based on data from each fabric roll inspected with the Fabriq Vision or another fabric inspection system from Uster Technologies AG, Uster/Switzerland, is well displayed on the PC screen. Process-related quality problems can be eliminated by immediate reactions and suitable corrective measures. It provides real-time quality statistics, and customizable quality analysis tools make it very easy to recognize problem ’hot spots’.
After final inspection, fabric will often be cut into smaller rolls, which will then be delivered to various customers. Optimized cut control (OCC system) provides a tool for automated cut optimization, as well as additional components which can be installed on any existing de-batching or cutting line.
