Teijin Aramid has launched a new smartphone app designed to help customers reduce calculation errors with a special conversion tool for the fibre and textiles industry.
Converting metric/imperial units that include yarn-related units such as twist levels and linear densities can lead to serious mistakes, the company says. The Unit Converter App enables Teijin’s customers to convert yarn-specific units, including twist per length, threads per width and linear density to yield. Users can also perform both aramid-related and non-aramid-related conversions, minimising the possibility of any calculation error.
“Converting units is always complicated, and history has shown that this sometimes leads to serious mistakes," explains Otto Grabandt, Global Technology and Application Manager at Teijin Aramid. "When metric/imperial unit conversions also involve yarn-related units such as twist levels, linear densities and yarn yields, moduli and tenacities it becomes very challenging. This app is a free tool for our customers that helps with easy and fast conversion between units, resulting in reduction of conversion mistakes.”
Until now, organisations still use tables and formulas printed on paper to convert units, Teijin reports, and these sheets often only include the basic formulas and leave room for many mistakes. The app can calculate more general categories such as weight and volume, conceptually complex categories such as mass per area and volume per time, and yarn-specific units such as threads per width and linear density to yield. It also processes special textile units.
The new Unit Converter App is available now for iOS and Android smartphones.
