Knit Monitoring System
Areas of Savings and Profitability:
Fabric defect scanner:
Using infrared fabric defect scanning reduces yarn and knitted fabric waste considerably by detecting defects immediately. The defects are tagged by location and type for inspection. This increases overall plant efficiency and fabric quality.
Yarn Rate Monitor:
Yarn rate monitoring will detect overfeeds and underfeeds of yarn usage. This will correct density, porosity, sizing and shrinkage issues and can save a considerable amount in yarn usage.
Fabric Quality Improvements:
Fabric quality improvements are seen in the combined technologies of detecting and eliminating fabric imperfections. The technologies used to improve fabric quality are defect scanning, yarn rate monitoring and preventative maintenance procedures and are organized through the Knit monitoring system. Combining these technologies can help to increase your customer satisfaction and leads to increased orders and heightened branding of your company’s reputation.
Machine Speed Increase Allowance:
Increasing speeds with maintained quality and efficiency leads to increased production and efficiency. This is done through maintained awareness of the machine healthiness using real-time data from the Knit monitoring system.
Labor Cost Reductions:
Coordinated communications from Knitter to Mechanic and to the healthiness of all the machines are used to organize the knitting room floor. This increases productiveness of employees and reduces labor costs.
All machine and employee functions are logged and classified for review. Inefficiencies are easily identifiable and addressable. Production becomes smoother and more efficient.
Yarn Quality Improvement:
By using the tools provided by the Knit monitoring system, mill owners have the ability to demand higher quality yarn from their suppliers. This can be done using the historical data generated and with the defective fabric on hand
The TFM software comes with a report generator that gives the manger or owner the ability to instantly create reports. Managers have the ability to save 16 different reports customized to the manager’s specifications.
The TFM software comes with a calendar function built in to help mangers schedule knitters and mechanics. This keeps an updated schedule in real time to help supervisors know who is suppose to be where.
