Continuous Fabric Defect Scanning eliminates waste rolls from running defects. Point defects are counted providing data to pinpoint problem machines/styles.
Prompted Inspection Cycles ensure visual inspection of fabric on a periodic basis for flaws not detected by optical fabric scanners. Yarn Consumption is also continuously measured to maximize fabric yield and eliminating costly yarn overfeeding.
Efficiency Data for Control
Machine Stops are categorized and time stamped providing management with data to determine what variables to address- Machine, knitting elements, operators, housekeeping.
Stop down times are also documented for operators and management to analyze ways to increase efficiency. Machine speed is monitored and compared with standard to ensure machines/fabric styles are running at optimum speed.
