Suessen QSS Rates Raw Material Qualtiy

Spindelfabrik Suessen GmbH, Germany,
now offers the QuickSpin System (QSS) for evaluation of raw material quality prior to spinning. The
system enables accurate prediction of yarn properties and processability, even when evaluating very
small fiber samples, according to the company.

Consisting of two separate units — Microdust-Trash Analyzer (MDTA 3) and QuickSpin Unit
(QSU) — QSS provides data as to a fiber’s cleanability, opening behavior, cohesion and stickiness;
as well as influences and tendencies coming from various raw materials. It also makes it possible
to develop cost-effective blends of different fibers.
