This year marks a new milestone for the fifth ITMA ASIA + CITME 2016 exhibition when it opens with the largest show in the series since its inception. A total of 1,673 exhibitors from 28 countries and economies are showcasing a wide array of machinery and solutions to an expected visitorship of around 100,000 during the five-day exhibition. The combined exhibition grosses over 170,000 square meters of exhibition space – 12 per cent larger than the last edition. It is the biggest showing since the first edition. The exhibition held on 21-25 October 2016. Textile Focus Technical Team closely monitored the exhibition. Here we are presenting some latest new technology for the world renowned companies for our readers.

Loepfe Brothers Ltd. presents a comprehensive portfolio of quality control solutions for the textile industry at ITMA Asia held in Shanghai. For the very first time in Asia, the company informs about the developments in the new LabMaster series.


The LabMaster series consists of the two measurement devices FIBERMAP, YARNMAP and LabMaster TOP. Both of them integrate the most important measurements into a single device. FIBERMAP measures all fiber-related parameters and delivers the complete fiber profile throughout the whole preparation process of the spinning mill, from bale to finisher sliver. FIBERMAP provides data of standard classing measurements and also measures process-relevant parameters like neps, seed coat neps, trash and stickiness. Easy sample preparation and large sample sizes result in high efficiency: a throughput of up to 250 samples during an eight-hour shift is possible. The YARNMAP increases the efficiency in the textile laboratory even further. It enables a synchronized measurement of the most relevant yarn properties, like count, evenness, hairiness and strength. In addition, all preparation products can be checked for mass evenness at the same time. The new management cockpit LabMaster TOP completes the series. It integrates all LabMaster devices into one central data management system. By delivering value-added reports directly on the management’s desk, it is an efficient tool for quality management in the spinning mill.
