Technical Textiles
A Technical textile is a textile product manufactured for non-aesthetic purposes, where function is the primary criterion. It is a large and growing sector and supports a vast array of other industries. Technical textiles include textiles for automotive applications, medical textiles (e.g., implants), geo textiles (reinforcement of embankments), agro textiles (textiles for crop production), and protective clothing (e.g., heat and radiation protection for fire fighter clothing, molten metal protection for welders, stab protection and bulletproof vests, and spacesuits).

Nep Tester
New technique in the measurement of neps in cotton sliver
It is used for the rapid and accurate counting of neps, shells and other impurities in textile materials with a fibre length of up to 100 mm in all stages of the spinning process from raw material to roving sliver. In particular, the instrument is used to verify the condition and proper setting of the carding machines for maximum nep reduction.
The Knowledge and control of the number of neps and impurities during the spinning process helps to improve:
Test Method
The Silver to be tested is fed between adjustable guides into a three roller drafting system. The lengths of the two drafting zones are infinitely variable and can be set according to the length of the fibre to be tested. The drafting system has a high draft and coverts the material into a thin transparent web. From the drafting system, the web is fed over an illuminated screen with four viewing zones. The total length of the web in these viewing zones corresponds to exactly 1cm actual feed.
The operator checks the web through a large magnifying glass and visually counts and classifies the neps, seed coat fragments and other impurities in the four viewing zones. The various counts are manually enters into four accumulating counters. After determination of the number of occurrences at one position, the web is moved forward and stopped at random at several places for additional tests until a sufficient number of occurrences has been accumulated. The number of tests made is counted.
