Textile innovations followed by market success

Leading manufacturer of textile machinery and equipment Oerlikon Textile is to showcase its latest outstanding product ideas at ITMA Asia 2008

(PresseBox) (Mönchengladbach, ) At "ITMA Asia + CITME 2008", China's largest-ever textile machinery exhibition to be held from 27 to 31 July 2008 in Shanghai, Oerlikon Textile will occupy a display area of over 1,500 square meters in the "Circle of Success" (Oerlikon Textile in Hall W2 Booth C02-D02 and Oerlikon Textile Components in Hall W2 Booth B06). The slogan reflects the success of the previous "Circle of Innovation", which was a powerful visitor magnet at ITMA 2007 in Munich. Many of the new ideas exhibited there were quickly taken up by the market as they set new technological standards. Oerlikon Textile again intends to excite the industry with the innovation capabilities of its 5 brands at ITMA Asia.

Oerlikon Schlafhorst: Staple fibre spinning at the highest level

At Shanghai, Oerlikon Schlafhorst will be confirming its position as an innovation and market leader with original technological solutions for the ring spinning, winding and rotor spinning sectors. The company will be showcasing plenty of new ideas for yarn package winding and yarn and piecing quality. Following their launch at ITMA Munich, the new Autoconer 5 winding machine and Autocoro S 360 rotor spinning machine have been proving their worth with excellent package and yarn quality and high productivity. Innovative quality solutions will also be showcased in compact spinning technology with Zinser ring spinning machines and the BD generation of rotor spinning machines. A high level of user-friendliness and ease of maintenance, complemented by a comprehensive general service concept, come as standard with all Oerlikon Schlafhorst machines.
