TRÜTZSCHLER EXHIBITS ITS ENTIRE TECHNOLOGY AT ITMA ASIA 2016

Many machines for spinning preparation will be exhibited for the first time in Asia.

With TC 15, 15 % more productivity: A whole range of individual measures ensures a performance increase of 15% compared to the predecessor machine. One example is the new web doffer with significantly reduced tension drafts. The result: Increased sliver evenness and improved running behavior.

With T-MOVE, saving space and increasing efficiency: The new can filling station does more than just save space.  The new moving head allows a can change at high delivery speeds. This improves card efficiency. The service life of the cans increases because they do not have to be moved during can change. Naturally, T-MOVE is designed for the new JUMBO CANS.

TC 10, the most successful card in China: Made in China – for China. The Card TC 10 is the card for the Chinese market. This Trützschler card in the traditional working width of one meter has been specifically designed for the Chinese market.

With IDF 2, Considerable savings due to process reduction while simultaneously improving yarn quality: With the Integrated Draw Frame IDF 2 it is possible to produce cotton rotor-spun yarns in the entire yarn count range without additional draw frame passages. These cost savings are simple to achieve without compromising yarn quality.

TD 9T, TW3IN breaker draw frame; the new concept: The Trützschler TWIN draw frame has no efficiency coupling of the two deliveries. This results in approx. 15% increased overall efficiency compared to double head draw frames.

TD 8, new can changer for the established autoleveller draw frame: Now, for the first time, there is also an underfloor can changer for small cans. This simplifies the operation significantly.

TD 8C is a single head technology with the space advantages of a double head draw frame: The space-saving COMPACT installation of the leveler draw frames is achieved without the disadvantages of conventional double head draw frames.

TCO 12A, comber for automatic lap change and automatic piecing: More flexibility is not possible. The Toyota-Trützschler combing mill offers manual, semi-automatic or fully automatic lap transport. The Comber TCO 12A is equipped with an automatic lap change with automatic piecing.

JUMBO CANS, increase in economic efficiency and quality improvement: The new JUMBO CANS with 1,200 mm diameter hold 43% more sliver than regular cans with 1,000 mm diameter. The new Trützschler cards, draw frames and combers have been designed for this new, more economic can format.

This means less can transports and increased efficiency of the downstream machine due to longer runtimes in the creel. The quality is improved by a reduction in sliver piecings. Depending on the size of the spinning mill, this results in several hundred thousand piecings less per year.

T-BLEND, higher precision at twice the production: When dealing with fiber blends, the accuracy of weighing systems is unbeatable. The new Trützschler development T-BLEND also relies on accurate weighing instead of indirect volumetric measurement methods. Based on a series of measures it was possible to double the performance per weigh pan. The new Modular Fiber Blending System T-BLEND combines maximum precision and high production.

T-SCAN, five technologies work hand in hand for highest separation rates: In the new Foreign Part Separator T-SCAN TS-T5, five detection technologies ensure all-time high separation efficiency:

F-module Detection of colored parts

G-module Detection of shiny parts

P-module Detection of transparent and semi-transparent parts

UV-module Detection of fluorescent parts

LED-module Detection of smallest thread-shaped parts

T-DATA, data quality with Trützschler sensor technology: The quality and production data system T-Data processes more than just the regular data. Trützschler sensors are used to determine neps in the card sliver, distances of carding elements or actual energy consumption of the machines. The web-based T-DATA ensures mobile availability of all these data.

Nonwovens

Trützschler Nonwovens puts emphasis on machines and concepts that are particularly sought-after in the Chinese market. The division provides information on new components as well as progress in processes and products.

A modular system for fiber preparation

Established components and new developments are the modular systems available to customers to arrange their individual fiber preparation.

,For nonwoven installations, the joint development with Trützschler Spinning includes bale opening, high-precision and simultaneously high-productive weighing units as well as the advanced conveyor belt with blending opener.

Nonwovens from the thermobonder – now also structured

A patent-pending, exchangeable structuring shell allows the production of bulky webs with permanent 3D structures during bonding in the through-air thermobonder.

SkyWind – a master roll winder for spunlace systems

Hydroentangled wipes are often produced on large systems. For this area of application, Trützschler Nonwovens developed the master roll winder SkyWind. Equipped with surface drive, it is characterized by robustness, simple operation and high availability.

Wet-in-wet process – nonwovens with special characteristics

Flushable wipes, standard cleaning cloths, coating substrata and technical felts are only a few examples of the end uses for wet-laid and hydroentangled webs. Meanwhile the second Voith-Trützschler system has been successfully put into operation in China.

Man-Made Fibers

Trützschler Man-Made Fibers informs about two new developments in the area of carpet yarn systems. The first one is high-performance, three-end machine concept and the second one an inline system for the production of BCF quality yarns from recycled polyester.

M30 – 3 BCF bobbins in one sweep

The M30 is the latest member of the symTTex system family. The 3-end machine completes the range of 2-end and 4-end BCF machines.

Thus, the optimal machine configuration for every application can be custom-made.

R-PET BCF – Carpet yarns made from bottle flakes

Trützschler Man-Made Fibers and EREMA Engineering Recycling Maschinen und Anlagen GmbH have entered into a cooperation in the area of recycled materials, particularly R-PET. For the new inline BCF solution, EREMA supplies a VACUREMA basic system and secondary components that produce a de-contaminated polymer melt. The downstream spinning positions from Trützschler Man-Made Fibers spin the material into high-quality carpet yarns.

Card Clothing

In the area of spinning, our flats selection has been expanded by two products for special applications:

NOVOTOP 58: is optimally suited for the application in the area of fine combed yarns at production speeds of up to 65 kg/h and machine width of one meter. A significant positive influence of the carding process is achieved by improvements in terms of tooth geometry, wire height, surface smoothness and the wire tips themselves. The air flow in the carding zone between cylinder and flat is optimized. This also significantly reduces fiber adherence and fiber breakage.

NOVOTOP 30: The flat clothing NOVOTOP 30 has been newly developed for the processing of coarse and/or dyed fibers and reclaimed fibers for rotor spinning.  It is ideally suited for use with yarn counts below Ne 10 and realizes high production speeds.

The flat types NT 30 and NT 58 are available as MAGNOTOP and CLASSICTOP.

GX1 cylinder clothing: Our new GX1 clothing has been specifically developed for use in the area of carded and combed cotton. Thanks to improved fiber guidance it allows an optimal fiber transfer and thus significantly better nep separation. This new development results in considerably improved raw material utilization.

Cylinder clothing with 717 ppsi: Our newly developed clothing with 717 ppsi achieves particularly good carding results for coarse to medium-coarse fibers, especially in the area of reclaimed fibers. Here it allows an optimal fiber transfer and greatly reduces fiber adherence.

NOVOBOND

In the area of Nonwovens we are presenting our new NOVOBOND clothes. The use of this clothing on the condensed roller is recommended when processing PES and PP with CV blends. The special geometry of the tip ensures a very good web adherence up to high speeds. The NOVOBOND clothes are available with 96 ppsi up to 244 ppsi.

Trützschler and EREMA Cooperate On Inline BCF Systems For R-PET

After having worked successfully together during the past year, both companies have signed an agreement on the cooperation in the area of reclycled materials, especially of R-PET. The cooperation covers BCF lines which produce carpet yarns by spinning reclycled polyester or blends of virgin PET chips and recycled flakes. The overall spectrum of products offered includes a VACUREMA Basic Line and secondary components from EREMA which feed the inline connected symTTex spin positions of Trützschler Man-Made Fibers with a high-quality polymer melt.

For cost reasons, recovered secondary raw materials, such as flakes from used PET bottles, have long been a popular commodity in both the plastic and in the fiber industry. Since the quality of the raw material plays a decisive role when spinning thermoplastic polymers, the bottle flakes have to be treated with special care. EREMA’s VACUREMA technology offers modular solutions with a vacuum reactor, a directly connected single-screw extruder and a high-performance filter for this process step. The high quality of the melt with respect to viscosity (IV value) and purity lays the foundation for top-quality filaments. The upstream processes have little impact on the directly following spinning process, since only small pressure fluctuations occur during backwashing or screen changes. Trützschler’s R-PET-spinning technology is based on the proven system components for spinning primary chips. The process involves the well-known spin packs and the double-shell godets, the HPc-texturing system and the fully automatic winder. Existing customers will appreciate the use of the same key components for operation of the R-PET plant.

The support of process and product development for recycled polyester through process engineering in Winterthur is part of the package.

Last year, Trützschler and EREMA jointly developed a carpet yarn plant for BCF yarns from recycled PET on customer demand. While the reactor, the extruder and the polymer filters were delivered by EREMA, Trützschler Man-Made Fibers was responsible for spinning, drafting and winding. The plant is very flexible, so that both yarns from 100% recycled material or blends with PET primary granules can be spun. The BCF yarns are used for various applications.
