One-stop innovations in spinning and winding

Übach-Palenberg, (PresseBox) - What advances the world's spinning mills? What makes them more competitive? Increasing economic efficiency is a key issue here. Oerlikon Schlafhorst machines are a top priority for spinning mill operators who want to fully exploit their economic opportunities. Oerlikon Schlafhorst has been setting the standard for years: in securing significant economic advantages in spinning mills, in all-round, excellent application and process orientation and in innovative spinning and winding know-how. The Autocoro 8, BD 448, Autoconer X5 and the Zinser speed frame and ring spinning machines are star performers in spinning mills worldwide.

Autocoro 8 and BD 448 set the benchmark in rotor spinning

Oerlikon Schlafhorst is the undisputed market leader in India with the Autocoro 8 and the BD 448. The Autocoro 8's significantly higher economic efficiency sets it apart from machines with conventional central drive technology. A year ago, the Autocoro 8 unleashed a revolution, because this new rotor spinning machine became the first and only machine to spin a yarn at a rotor speed of 200,000 rpm. Indian spinning mills are experiencing productivity increases of up to 25%, machine start-up takes minutes instead of hours, the multi-lot capability is excellent and spinning costs have shrunk considerably. More than 150 machines are already in operation worldwide, opening up new markets and prospects for spinning mills. The semi-automatic BD 448 rotor spinning machine is also the unchallenged market leader in India. With its highly efficient material usage, the machine offers greater economy, requires fewer operatives and energy and boasts a high efficiency rating. This is in addition to producing its proven high yarn and package quality.

Zinser - high ring spinning machine productivity thanks to automatic doffing

Automatic doffing is increasingly becoming a standard feature of the ring spinning mill independently of staff costs and markets. It is becoming more and more difficult to findsuitable staff for work in the spinning mill. Automatic doffing contributes significantly to reducing the staff requirement in spinning mills, and up to 50% of staff costs can be saved through the use of the CoWeMat, depending on the yarn count and bobbin format. Waiting times and machine downtimes are avoided, thus improving the installation's efficiency rating. In addition to the labour savings, the spinning mill's output is increased.

The CoWeMat's fast, reliable bobbin change safeguards the high efficiency rating and ensures the continuous optimum utilization of the ring spinning machines. Zinser ring spinning machines have the most effective and reliable doffer in the world in the CoWeMat. Only this level of reliability ensures that potential can also be exploited. Only operational reliability guarantees the high productivity of the machines.

To reduce the logistical effort in the spinning mill further, the ring spinning machine can be linked directly to the winding machine. This rules out any mix-up of material, meaning that the doffer makes an active contribution to quality assurance too. The direct link with the winding machine also reduces the footprint of the installation as a whole, which in turn reduces the investment costs of the overall mill. This direct link permits perfect harmonization of spinning and winding capacities, resulting in optimum utilization of the whole mill and a higher total efficiency rating.

At ITME India 2012, Oerlikon Schlafhorst is presenting the new ring spinning machine ZinserImpact 71 linked to the Autoconer X5 V. We will thus demonstrate the reliability of the doffer and the system advantages of a linked system in operation.

Autoconer X5 - flexible winding technology for profitable winding and downstream processing.

The quality package of the Autoconer sets the benchmark for individually and flexibly adaptable package quality with maximum productivity. Thanks to its flexible package winding technology, the Autoconer FX has the right answer to every demand, be it for convincing standard package quality, additional benefits provided by FX technology modules or complete freedom of package design with PreciFX. Different automation stages for bobbin processing or cone-to-cone rewinding enable every customer to integrate the right machine configuration for their process sequence. This versatility extends right up to the fully automatic spinning mill, thanks to a direct link with the spinning machine. Process sequences that save energy and conserve resources come as standard, while flexibility and future-readiness are always guaranteed due to the latest sensors, drive technology and electronics.
