At Booth 103/b in Hall 3 visitors will
find the exhibits of the Austrian company Lenzing Instruments GmbH & Co
KG, offering solutions for the quality control within the fields of
filament, fibre, nonwovens, and film production. Lenzing Instruments
develops, manufactures and markets testing equipment for laboratory use,
at-line use close by the production as well as online systems. Filament
producers will be interested in viewing and testing the characteristics of
DTI 500 and RAPID 500.
PROMPT is an
online system, which gives real time online feedback on some of the most
vital properties of synthetic filament yarns, such as titer, evenness,
interlace, broken filaments, yarn defects, yarn breaks, fluff and spin
finish. PROMPT features the MFS, a Multi Function Sensor, with which all of
the above properties are monitored simultaneously. The MFS can be used in
combination with the OLT, the online tension sensor for continuous real time
feedback of the absolute yarn tension.
500 is a robust stand alone instrument for the determination of draw tension
or draw elongation on the running yarn, giving the operator quick feedback
about the molecular orientation of the yarn and thereby predicting its
performance in further processing. For the quality control of interlaced
yarns, Lenzing Instruments has developed RAPID 500.
is a table top instrument, which determines the number of nodes over a
certain length, their split distance as well as the tenacity of the nodes
automatically. The measurements with DTI 500 and RAPID 500 can be carried
out on the work floor, directly after the filament has left production. This
increases the possibility to react quickly to malfunctions in the production
process, reducing waste. Both instruments conform to ASTM norms.
NMR determines the spin finish content (FOY/OPU) on fibres and filaments by
means of the technique of Time Domain NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance).
Based on modern analytical technology, ALFA NMR features fast, accurate,
non-destructive and solvent-free analysis. The hand-held unit OPUMAT is the
ideal tool for a quick and easy check of the oil pick up on the running
Vibroskop 400 and Vibrodyn 400 are
Lenzing Instruments two pioneers within staple fibre testing: First
developed in the 60’s, having gone through several updates since then,
they now belong to the worlds most used instruments for the determination of
titer and tensile properties of staple fibre. Vibroskop 400 and Vibrodyn 400
meet all international standards (ASTM, BISFA, ISO, DIN, …). Additionally
to the already existing quality control systems for the nonwovens sector,
Instruments now also offers the
VDM 01, a standardised vertical measuring system for thickness measurements
of voluminous fleece cloths and plastics, both in the dry and in the wet
state. VDM 01 corresponds to DIN EN ISO 9073-2. Lenzing Instruments is
represented in India by the Mumbai-based Tirupati Technik.
