Pioneer in foreign matter

Loepfe is since 1991 pioneer in foreign matter detection.

The redesigned YarnMaster Zenit F sensor technology ensures

a ­unprecedented foreign matter clearing precision.

The yarn body is illuminated sequentially from several angles

in ­order to fully evaluate the faults. Signals resulting from reflection
and transmission are ­computed so that yarn diameter differences

are compensated and foreign matters made visible.

LOEPFE successfully implements the wide know-how for all sorts

of applications. Disturbing foreign matters are reliably detected
and cleared in raw-white, dyed as well as mélange staple yarns.

By using an additional clearer setting, off-standard bobbins are
