Automatic recognition of the front and back side of textiles
At ITM, taking place from April 14 through 17 in Istanbul, the German automation and inspection specialist Erhardt+Leimer will present a new camera application for recognition of the front and back side of a textile web. The system named “ELSIDE“ detects the structure of the material even at high production speeds and irrespective of the material distortion; in this way it is able to differentiate between the front and back side. ELSIDE is suitable for use in all textile manufacturing processes in which incorrectly sewn sections can have a negative influence on the downstream process. Before starting production, only a short teaching procedure is required during which the matrix CCD camera captures the structure of the textile web. Afterwards, an alarm signal is issued in the event of incorrectly sewn sections.
Cutting technology, proven a thousand times
Apart from this new solution E+L will present two ELCUT cutting systems from its large range of products for the textile industry: the highly successful BTA80 edge cutting system, sold 1800 times (in pairs) since it was launched in 2013, and the BT 2535 tube slitter with its FE 5204 matrix drop stitch sensor, which reliably detects a very wide range of different drop stitch forms.
In addition, the ELSMART web guiding and spreading system, the ELSTRAIGHT weft straightener and the camera-based ELCOUNT pick and course counter system will be on exhibition.
