The Swiss based SSM SchÃ¤rer Schweiter Mettler AG, the inventor of the electronic yarn traverse system, will introduce the new XENO platform to demonstrate its lead in the market. The manufacturer will launch six new products in the Winding & Doubling segments and two in False-Twist & Air-Texturing, the companyâ€™s latest technologies will be shown for the first time at the forthcoming ITMA international exhibition for textile machinery to be held in Milan, Italy, from 12 to 19 November.
The new SSM modular winding machine platform XENO combines dye package winding, rewinding and doubling applications with three different winding technologies. The XENO is available with counter rotating blades (XENO-BW), with friction drive system (XENO-FW) and with high quality SSM yarn guide system (XENO-YW).
With the new platform, SSM is able to offer the three winding technologies for assembly winding as well (XENO-BD, XENO-FD and XENO-YD). Complying to the growing automation demand (due to increasing labour costs) all the XENO machines could be equipped with an automatic doffer system, the company reports.
Another advantage and benefit of the XENO platforms is the enhanced DIGICONE 2 winding algorithm, enabling a 10-20% increase on dye package density with same dyeing recipe.
The unique characteristics of tailor-made high performance yarns is helping such yarns to substitute other classical materials in large range of applications; thereby continually increasing the usage of technical textiles and consequently their consumption, the manufacturer reports.
The SSM DURO-TW precision winder for all technical yarns up to 50â€™000 dtex is said to offer a new level of flexibility and winding quality in one machine, thereby ensuring the fulfilment of all customer requirements.
The assembly winder DURO-TD is said to allow the plying of multiple ends/yarns; independently of them being of the same type or completely different. Optional intermingling guarantees loop-free twists as well as optimal unwinding during twisting, according to the company. The ability to run closed precision winding is said to enable higher package densities, thereby increasing the knot-free length.
From SSM Giudici the brand new TG2 machines will be shown. The TG2 platform comes with an individual, frontal doffing system to allow double-sided concept of the machine (one full package and one empty tube in the cradle whilst a package is being processed).
The SSM Giudici TG2-FT false-twist texturing machine combines a proven texturing path along with a spacing saving machine design. The result is a machine for the cost efficient production of high quality polyamide (down to 7 dtex), polypropylene, as well as fine count polyester yarns.
In combination with the TG2-FT the TG2-AT will be shown as well. The SSM Giudici TG2-AT air texturing machine is designed for the cost efficient production of high quality air texturized yarns made of POY or FDY polyester, polyamide and polypropylene and ranging from fine to medium final counts.
The SSM TK2-20 CT/KTE will be exhibited for Sewing Thread Finish Winding. It combines the established performance of the well-known THREAD KING series with the functionality and operational comfort of modern control and drive technology.
The TK2-20 is said to fulfil the highest yarn processing requirements. Besides of the cone winding (CT) the latest technology for Kingspools (KTE) will be shown. The TK2-20 KTE is a fully automatic Kingspool winder which is a flexible sewing thread finish winder for bonded filaments. Thanks to the fastflex electronic yarn guide system, customers can change the traverse length, the spool size as well as the crossing ratio without big efforts.
SSM operates in more than 62 countries and has an excellent network of local sales & service stations offices around the world to give its global and local customers the support they need to develop and conduct their business successfully.
