BMS–BarcoVision launches new products at ITMA ASIA in Shanghai (22-26 June 2010)During the ITMA Asia exhibition, which is organized from June 22 till June 26, 2010 in Shanghai, BMS-BarcoVision will exhibit its sensors and systems for the textile industry in the weaving section, Hall E4, Booth A73.
BarcoVision will show the latest version of its Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) for weaving, knitting, tufting and spinning, all based on wireless data collection technology. All of these systems include software modules for real time machine monitoring, production scheduling, fabric inspection, yarn inventory management and traceability. A starter package, WeaveMaster Easy, is now also available as a low cost entry level system with extension possibilities towards a full blown MES system.
The latest version of the Cyclops automatic on loom fabric inspection system has now also been optimized for the inspection of carbon, Kevlar and glass fabrics.

During the ITMA Asia exhibition, BarcoVision also launches a brand new sensor for airjet weaving looms: the Kinky Filling Detector (KFD). This detector, a combination of laser and camera technology, continuously checks the fabric for the presence of kinky fillings (loops) and can stop the loom in case of excessive occurrence of these defects within a certain length of the fabric.
For the first time in Asia, BarcoVision will also present its EnergyMaster system for monitoring the energy consumptions in the plant. Energy has become a very important cost element in the textile manufacturing process. Following the principle of Monitoring & Targeting (M&T), EnergyMaster maps the different energy consumptions (electricity, water, gas, compressed air, steam,…) for further analysis and optimization. The integration of these energy parameters with other MES applications, such as monitoring of the spinning, weaving and finishing operations, provides a perfect insight in the relation between energy consumption and production and allows quick identification of energy saving potentials.
