Oerlikon Textile Components has chosen the ITME 2012 in Mumbai as the platform to launch the PK 2630 SHE.

Texparts® Zero Underwinding - A system to prevent underwound ends

There are four outstanding arguments for the Texparts® Zero Underwinding system:

The first advantage is a reliable clamping of the yarn ends. The smart design provides sufficient clamping force at all times. A preloaded spring ensures secure yarn clamping.

The second advantage is a fail-safe yarn cutting. With the steel yarn cutter safe cutting is achieved. The solid metal yarn cutter retains its superior cutting quality. Even challenging yarns can be cut simply and safely.

The third advantage is a precise and long-lasting function. The centrifugal ball principle ensures a precisely defined opening and closing speed. A uniform and sufficiently large clamping and opening gap is guaranteed at all times.

The fourth advantage is an easy handling. In case of maintenance the easy and quick replacement of the Texparts® Zero Underwinding system is possible by maintaining the spindle upper part.

Daytex Shrinkage Belt - New edge enables to optimize customer benefit Today about 80 % of all textiles, which are sold on the market, undergo a shrinking process. The main application still lies in the area of heavy fabrics such as denim for example but today also dress shirt fabrics are being pre-shrunk. The majority of knitted fabrics are systematically protected from shrinkage with the aid of this process.

To achieve the best price-performance ratio for a belt, two factors must be reached: an efficient utilization of area as well as a maximum lifetime of the belt. Belts all over the world are sold per unit length (US$/inch). This means that finding the right belt width also means finding the optimum price and/or area usage. The smaller the difference between the overall belt width and the working face width, the more efficient the use of the belt. This difference is defined by the belt edge shape. The latest feature from Oerlikon Textile Components, the Daytex® Curved Edge, optimizes the area usage. Alongside the area utilization, the edge shape also has a decisive effect on the life time of the belt. The new Daytex® Curved Edge shape greatly supports the durability of the belt. The new shape is completely free of sharp edges, which can easily become starting points for the formation of cracks.
