Uster Statistics celebrates their 60th anniversary this year.
Today, these global benchmarks have legendary status throughout the industry as an objective measure of quality. The development over the decades provides a reliable monitor of how quality demands in textiles have increased. For instance, a typical yarn with a 50% quality rating back in 1964 would need to register much better evenness to reach the same level half a century later. This comparison is made using Uster Statistics Percentiles for comparing the quality of spinning mills worldwide.
Looking ahead, the ongoing expansion of Uster Statistics will continue with the inclusion of many more quality parameters such as Hairiness Length Classification in the 2018 edition.
