Automated textile substrate identification.
Home appliances (washing machine, washer drier, laundry ironing machine etc.) need to know the textile substrate composition of the textile products or cloths in order to properly set the parameters of the washing/drying/ironing (laundry) process. The most important parameters of the laundry processes which depend on the textile substrate classification output are the operational temperature, bath ratio, centrifuge speed, and laundry rubbing intensity. Using inappropriate laundry process parameters for a certain textile substrate can lead to a serious damage to the processed garment. Automatically predicting appropriate program provide users an added value, increasing living standard.
Industry laundry machine service providers can automatically recognize laundry type and use appropriate washing program.
Cloth manufacturers or purchase departments can with the non-invasive textile substrate identification verify the quality, composition, and declaration correctness of the input raw materials used during garment manufacture.
