Modern testing with the Use of computers

In modern textile testing labs, almost all kinds of testing processes are done with the help of microprocessors and electronic components.

Connecting them with computers also added more features, accuracy, easy calculation of complex sums, and data record options.
The following are the main benefits of modern laboratories with autonomous computers.

  1. Easily record all testing results. Computers directly record output data via an analogue-to-digital converter to existing instruments.
  2. Remove errors of testing like human error to noting down data and manual calculation errors.
  3. Collected data are processed automatically and represent graphical output with certain kinds of templates that will ease reading and comparison.
  4. By specific graph or template, quality grade, variation in quality, quantity range and their variation can easily track.
  5. Maximum value, minimum value, mean value, centre value, and range of testing output data are clear easily.
  6. By analyzing these data, any action or feedback will be easy to take.
  7. The ability to adjust the zero level for the instrument automatically. This can be done, for instance, by taking the quiescent output as being the zero level and subtracting this from all other readings.
  8. The chances for performing all intermediate calculations together with any statistical calculations become more accurate and easy in the case of multiple tests. 
  9. Final output or testing data can be printed and its report can be easily shared.
  10. Testing becomes more accurate and less time-consuming specifically in the result data process and its analysis.
  11. In a fully automated system, setting ranges, speeds, tensions, and zeroing the instrument can all be carried out without the intervention of an operator. 
  12. The settings are usually derived from sample data entered at the keyboard.
  13. The automation of steps in the test procedure enables an improvement to be made in the repeatability of test results owing to the reduction in operator intervention and a closer standardization of the test conditions. 
  14. The precision of the instrument is then dependent on the quality of the sensors and the correctness of the sample data given to the machine. 
  15. To be generally acceptable automated instruments have to be able to carry out the test to the appropriate standard or have to be able to demonstrate identical results to those that have been obtained with the standard test method. 
  16. It is still possible even with advanced automation for results to be incorrect for such simple reasons as wrong identification of samples or failure to condition samples in the correct testing atmosphere.
