Vanguard Pai Lung Debuts Knit Monitoring System

Circular knitting machinery manufacturer and services provider Vanguard Pai Lung LLC (VPL), Monroe, N.C., reports its VPL Knit Monitoring System (KMS) offers remote, secure accessibility to plant data and enables plant managers and executives to monitor and manage plant operations and product quality.

The VPL KMS features an infrared fabric defect scanner that immediately detects defects, and a yarn rate monitor to detect yarn overfeeds and underfeeds; and organizes these functions along with preventive maintenance procedures, thereby reducing waste and improving fabric quality. The user can input fabric requirements for a certain style, and the system schedules it and monitors production progress while also enabling production schedule adjustments. The system also monitors and reports details such as downtime and production efficiency; and calculates worker pay according to job performance, accounting for work load, downtime and other factors.
