This paper reports progress on an analysis, carried out at the International Textile Center, of fineness and maturity measurements for the latest generation AFIS machine in comparison with HVI micronaire, FMT micronaire, FMT maturity ratio, FMT fineness and AFIS diameter measurements. Information is presented on the results of correlations among the fibre variables, the use of standard fineness and the predictive power of fineness measurements. It is suggested that more attention should be focused on the meaning and measurement of standard fineness.
