Title: Computer Aided Fabric Evaluation (CAFE) Final Report CRADA No. TC-0760-93

Abstract

The Computer Aided Fabric Evaluation (CAFE) effort was a multi-laboratory effort with a Research, Education, and Technology Transfer (RETT) Participant, the Institute of Textile Technology (ITT). ITT seines as an umbrella organization for multiple industrial textile firms. The range of problems and potential approaches viewed against the wide range of textile products clearly demonstrated the need for participation by a number of DOE resources. Hence, collaboration among the scientists at Argonne National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and Sandia National Laboratory became the key element of the DOE support. The integration of multi-laboratory capabilities resulted in the development of two inspection systems. One system permitted the online inspection of greige goods. the second permitted the online inspection for printed color. Each system when employed should significantly increase the product quality, decrease the frequency of defective textile product manufacture or shipment, increase material throughput, and improve manufacturing efficiency. The objective of this Project was to develop a modular, open architecture automated fabric inspection system which would ensure a migration path for future system growth and provide the best cost profile resulting from competitive vendor support.
