Uster Completes Integration of EVS


Quality solutions across the full range of primary textile production – from fiber to finished fabrics – are now offered by Uster Technologies, following the successful integration of automated inspection systems from EVS.

This expansion of capability means Uster is unique as the world’s only supplier of high-tech instruments for quality monitoring and management in spinning, weaving, knitting, finishing and nonwovens. The three EVS systems for vision-based fabric inspection are now presented under Uster branding.

On April 25th this year, Uster announced the acquisition of Elbit Vision Systems (EVS), a world-leading high-technology supplier for automated vision inspection in the textile industry. Since then, both organizations have been working to integrate EVS into the Uster Group. This phase was completed on October 1st, when EVS started operations under the name of Uster Technologies Ltd., based in Caesarea, Israel.

EVS fabric inspection systems are now presented under the Uster brand, with new names: Uster EVS Q-Bar (fabric quality monitoring system), Uster EVS Fabriq Vision (fabric quality assurance system) and Uster EVS Fabriq Shade (fabric shade optimization system). They also have a new look – the distinctive and award-winning dark-red and grey Uster design – confirming the identity of the fabric inspection systems at a glance.
