VISUAL INSPECTION

 

Sometimes it is necessary to “freeze” the picture with a stroboscope to find out what is really happening on your machine at full speed.

  • raveling edges are very dangerous for spiral fabrics – inspect the edges on the fly
  • keep an eye on contaminations and deposits on the fabric surface
  • web fluttering may cause edge tears and web breaks
  • the remaining fabric life potential is not only determined by the caliper. A visual inspection with a microscope during a machine stop gives additional detailed information of both sides of the fabric
