The fully automatic Autocoro 9 using individual spinning positions technology sets new standards for productivity, efficiency and quality. The unmatched rotor speeds, machine lengths and take-up speeds reduce the spinning cost and energy consumption considerably by a two-digit percentage value.

In addition, intelligent automated processes and Lean Maintenance reduce the maintenance costs. This increases the user-friendliness and saves on personnel costs.

The new semi-automatic BD 7 machine is also in a league of its own, producing impressive packages in Autocoro quality in all package sizes up to 320mm in diameter.
The Autoconer 6 with E³ sets standards regarding energy, economics and ergonomics.
The BD 7 reduces spinning costs and increases profitability by optimized, reduced energy consumption, rapid take-up speeds on all lengths and an improved space utilization.

2.5 million delivered Autoconer winding units – this unparalleled record in the sector sends a clear message: the Autoconer is the synonym for efficient package winding for more than 50 years.

The Autoconer 6 with E³ sets now again standards regarding energy, economics and ergonomics. Additionally with its quality packages and leading automation solutions, the Autoconer offers measurable benefits both during winding and in downstream processing.

Innovations such as LaunchControl, SmartCycle, SmartJet or Eco-Drum-Drive system as well as intelligent sensor technology, smart process control and auto calibration functions have proven their worth in textile practice.

Allma and Volkmann are the world’s leading manufacturers of twisting and cabling machines and will be presenting the CompactTwister – High-performance Two-for-One twisting machine for staple fibre yarns, and the CableCorder CC4 – Direct cabling machine for high quality tire cord.

Both products are characterized by low energy consumption, high economic efficiency and machine productivity as well as high operating convenience and have been certified with the Saurer E³ label for their triple added value. Visitors will be also informed about innovative products and solutions in the companies’ other segments: carpet yarns, industrial yarns and glass filament yarns.

Sedo Treepoint

(Booth: W4 B08)

Top innovations from Sedo Treepoint are the Industry 4.0 and China 2025 automation concepts.
Sedo Treepoint will exhibit technological highlights together with Sedo Engineering. Top innovations from Sedo Treepoint are the Industry 4.0 and China 2025 automation concepts which will increase productivity and energy efficiency.

Having a Sedomat controlling the dyeing machine, this opens the door to the latest technologies for an automatic dye house: with new software applications for energy management, printing management, a deeper integration and higher automation can be achieved. Simulation of production orders can reduce machine downtimes and will give machine operators the best possible plan for production.

As a leading company in color management, the company highlights also recipe software and process optimization to save water, dyestuff and effluent in production. A lot of the know-how can be stored in the system, so that human errors are avoided. By entering rules, automatic optimization will achieve tremendous savings.

Meanwhile, Sedo Engineering shows their new revolutionary way to produce SmartIndigo for denim. It opens up the industrial production of Leuco-Indigo on the basis of electrochemical reduction for the first time. This environmentally friendly process is a global Innovation. The smarter way to indigo is trendsetting for the whole denims industry.

The Swiss based SSM Schärer Schweiter Mettler AG, the inventor of the electronic yarn traverse system, announces their participation of the ShanghaiTex on the booth of their agent Union Trading as well as on the booth of Rieter Components.

After the successful introduction of the XENO-platform in Asia in 2016, SSM has put the focus on the X-Series this year. With the latest application for cone-to-muff and muff-to-cone winding, SSM offers a highly flexible and economical system.

To maintain a high residual elasticity of elastic Polyamide (PA) and Polyester (PES) draw textured yarns (DTY) after dyeing, the muff dyeing process with integrated SSM leading yarn winding technology is the best solution.

The new SSM PWX-CTM enables the preparation of low-density muffs, while maintaining the highest possible elasticity of the yarn throughout the dyeing process.

For the highest flexible and productive rewinding, the SSM PWX-MTC offers the proper solution; regardless whether muffs, hanks, dye packages on dye tubes or coreless dye packages are to be rewound.
Dos&Dye is an automatic system for increasing the productivity of laboratory dyeing cycles.

(Booth: W4 B25)

Dos&Dye is a complete automatic system composed by a Dosorama dispensing machine and a Dyrama robotized dyeing machine able to work autonomously 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Conceived and manufactured by TECNORAMA, the system can manage and perform laboratory dyeing cycles, and increasing the productivity both for laboratory and bulk.

In the laboratory, it reduces the dyeing trials to obtain the exact recipe thanks to the complete reproduction of dyeing cycle exactly as in the bulk machines in preparing, dyeing, soaping and washing.

The right first time result grants the exact recipe coming from the laboratory in order to drastically reduce the corrections after dyeing and the re-dyeing into bulk machines with a huge saving of the time dedicated to a production batch and the increase of the whole productivity of the dye house.

Thanks to the optimization of production processes and to the overcoming of those limits inherent manual management of the laboratory, the system allows to reduce water and energy consumption for an environment friendly approach and for considerable saving of time and money.
