Automatic yarn handling
The laboratory of a spinning mill is in charge for many daily tests. The control of the preparation and spinning process is controlled by the quality manager who is often also responsible for the laboratory. The laboratory operators need to get samples from the raw material and all the machines in order to make sure that the quality is meeting the set standards. If any deviations are recorded, the quality manager has to initiate the required improvement actions or even to stop the production.
In order to be able to perform the numerous tests in the laboratory, the YARNMAP is provided with a yarn handling arm that is able to take the yarn from 24 yarn clamps and guide the yarn to the selected sensors. The operator only has to define the testing program for a specific yarn and start the process. The presence of the operator during the measurement is not needed as all yarn measurements are taking place fully automatically.
