Sensor for the in-line measurement of textile title variations
ProductN. Schlumberger had previously offered its customers its proprietary Texgate system to measure variations of titles in production. The system was not as successful as had been hoped due to the fact that the measurements drifted over time and required substantial setup work. The company turned to Leti to test concepts for potential use measuring titles. Leti recommended two technologies for further investigation, one a radiofrequency technology, and the other an ultrasonic technology. The ultrasonic technology was eliminated at this stage of the project. RF measurement using a waveguide emerged as the more promising option. However, some questions remain to be answered so that the concept can be validated and a prototype developed.
