Rieter’s SPIDERweb is a comprehensive spinning mill monitoring and control system, which simplifies economically important decisions. Over 250 customers in 50 countries are using SPIDERweb on more than 12,000 machines, say Huijuan Zhang and Nitin Patil.
SPIDERweb is the only spinning mill monitoring and control system available on the market.
It integrates all processes in a spinning mill, all machine generations as well as all four spinning technologies from the fiber to the yarn.
The system facilitates the making of economically sound decisions concerning the whole spinning mill operation. For 20 years, Rieter has been in the field worldwide with SPIDERweb. The experience gained continues to flow into the further development of the system.
Fault summary / Event history
All events and faults relevant to the production process are displayed in the logbook table and can be sorted by using code, time of occurrence or duration.
No other mill control system offers such exact fault identification. Problem areas are identified fast and accurately and tasks can be prioritised. This saves time and enables high productivity for every individual machine and therefore the entire spinning mill.
A number of machine-integrated sensors are used by SPIDERweb, including the online quality monitor sensor for the draw frame, the yarn clearer sensor for rotor and air-jet spinning processes, and the ISM (Individual Spindle Monitoring) sensors for ring and compact spinning machines. The Quality Manager can, at any time, retrieve the quality data recorded online and presented graphically.
Longstanding expertise acquired by Rieter backs the SPIDERweb diagrams and tables. They can be very easily adapted to meet individual needs. Visual representations of important machine data can save a lot of time and help in making quick decisions (Fig 1).
SPIDERweb, equipped with various modules, fulfills the individual requirements of the spinning mill:
Mobile alert for quick action
- Energy monitoring for optimised consumption
- Quality control for consistent yarn properties
- Climate monitoring for optimal production
- Assistant modules – integrated expertise for rapid analyses
SPIDERweb provides competence in intelligent control of the spinning mill and increases economic viability.
