The Bible of the Ring Spinning Industry

(PresseBox) ( Fellbach, )
It is not without pride that Oerlikon Textile Components with its product line Texparts looks back on nearly 40 years of the paperback book. It is safe to say, without exaggeration, that virtually every ring spinning mill in the world is familiar with the paperback featuring Oerlikon Textile Components. If it is not known under the term Paperback, then under "the Almanac of the Ring Spinning Industry" or the "Bible of Ring Spinners".

The first edition of the book was published in the seventies, at that time still by SKF. Even in those days the paperback contained a listing of all components, including recommendations on application and settings. The paperback was first published by Texparts in 2001.

The technical drawings shown with product dimensions support the selection process of the correct spare part. The user is often unsure which sub-components are part of his pendulum arm, for instance. This information is in the book, clearly arranged. Thus, for example, each pendulum arm includes a description indicating the type of top rolls (LP), cradles (OH) and clips (OCL) to be used.

The practical paperback can be found on the desks of spinning managers or maintenance supervisors. What Texparts bearings do I need for the spindle drive of my ring spinning machine? What is the correct order number? How do I find the ideal pressure setting for my new pendulum arm Texparts® PK SE? What type of clips should I use for changeover to fine yarn Ne 120? How often should I perform an oil change on my Texparts® CS 1 S spindles? How do I calculate the twist multiplier Alpha English? What type of Accotex® top roll covering do I need for medium yarn count when processing a polyester cotton blend? When and how should I grind my Accotex® coating?

The answers to these questions and many more can be found in the practical guide on over 400 pages.

A new edition is published every 4 years. Traditionally, publishing coincides with the European ITMA. Since the Munich issue in 2007, the book has been published in the Oerlikon look. The product line Accotex with its cots and aprons for the staple fibre industry is included since that time as well.

The Almanac is available as CD or in paper form. In Barcelona, a new edition of about 3000 books wait for you with refreshed content in English and Chinese. Visit us at our stand. We will be happy to provide you with your personal copy.
