At ITMA 2019 from June 20th to 26th in Barcelona, Saurer will present a range of new products, demonstrating its drive for continual innovation to customers and the industry.
The innovations that Saurer Spinning Solutions will show at ITMA include new machinery, automation and digitization technologies as well as quality-determining components and services. Saurer’s solution approach is also integrated into the product portfolio of the segment. Managing the spinning value chain from finalized package down to fibers gives Saurer a knowledge base that translates into a competitive advantage for customers. For Saurer, the solution consists of more than just machinery. Automation, digitization, service, training, consulting and even project financing are integral parts of a smart offering, conceptualized with customers’ top-of-mind requirements.
The extension of the value chain from bale to package allows Saurer to have complete control over yarn quality along the entire process. While focusing on delivering perfect package quality for each spinning application from one source, the systems have been divided into ring spinning (Zinser System) and open-end spinning (Schlafhorst System). Zinser focuses on flexibility and intelligent linkage in high-speed ring spinning, and features a new modular structure and intelligent RFID-based material flow. In open-end spinning, Schlafhorst embodies versatility with solutions for different yarn structures.
The Saurer Technologies Segment will also present an array of innovative products. Customers in the carpet yarn sector will need look no further than the new series of CarpetCabler/CarpetTwister, which is capable of fulfilling any requirements with ease. This Segment will also be launching the latest generation of the CompactTwister, which has already demonstrated its dominance in the market with sales of over four million spindles.
Saurer will also offer complete top-down embroidery solutions. Customers can complete each step of the ennoblement process, from the first drawing of the design to the final stitch on the Epoca 7 machine. Its HeadLine application system, also incorporating a new laser head that can cut virtually any fabric, allows customers to produce limitless designs. Automation features have resulted in a dramatic increase in productivity.
With the launch of a device-monitoring system for all ball bearings, Saurer enters the market for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions. The system allows constant condition monitoring of every single Temco bearing within a plant. Identifying positions with possible defects before serious malfunctions occur enables customers to take a proactive approach.
In its elastomer components business line, Saurer is fulfilling customers’ requests for a ring-spinning cot with a hardness of 68 Shore A, completing the range of Accotex J-series cots from soft to hard with different lifetimes for different applications. The latest air-jet spinning aprons feature redesigned composition of the inner layer in combination with a newly designed knurled structure, resulting in even gentler yarn treatment.
