Tufting is a type of textile weaving in which a thread is inserted on a primary base. It is an ancient technique for making warm garments, especially mittens. Measuring thickness and basis-weight profiles in cross-machine direction enables manufacturers to verify inline tufting quality and grammage/density.
These products typically require tailored add-ons that you might need to check.
Products and solutions built upon Hammer-IMS’s measurement systems are connectable through a software suite fitting your inline needs. The software is called Hammer-IMS Connectivity 2.0. It enables an intuitive experience while monitoring your production. It features configuration of all devices that Hammer-IMS provides, real-time measurement visualisation, data-save functionality, calibration routines and various modules for various measurement tasks and materials.
The CURTAIN mechanical mounting frames are O-type or C-type based traveling or fixed measurement frames. They are designed to contain up to 4 sensor-head pairs of the Marveloc 602 product family for inline applications. The frames feature a rigid structure, which does not suffer performance loss due to sensor-head misalignment, which is a typical killer for non-rigid frames. The frames contain an enclosed space for insertion of one Marveloc 602 processing unit. The Marveloc’s wiring can be concealed in dedicated cable conduits. If a traveling frame is requested, it is mounted on a linear-drive unit including a motor drive to enable full coverage of the material’s width. The multi-head nature enables a short mean time between measurement, and small line clearances for broad production lines.
