Saurer Group’s Allma and Volkmann, the leaders in the world of twisting and cabling technology, are set to show its latest developments in twisting technology for industrial yarns at Techtextil 2017, the leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens, to be held from May 9 to 12, 2017, in Frankfurt, Germany, in stand D02, hall 3.0.
The company will display its two-for-one twisting machine TechnoCorder TC2 for industrial yarns at the expo. In this machine, up to 9-ply yarn constructions can be processed. The innovative FlexiPly device allows for the production of innovative hybrid yarns.
The TechnoCorder TC2 is characterised in particular by its unique flexibility in production, material, and yarn counts of industrial yarns. Self-sufficient spindle drives allow for such production flexibility that individual items can be processed on each separate spindle. With the innovative FlexiPly software, one can economically produce the hybrid yarn constructions expected by the market on the TechnoCorder TC2. Through the use of different materials such as polyamide and aramid and different twists, yarns with new characteristics are created for technical textiles, tires, and mechanical rubber goods (MRG).
A novelty is the extension of the FlexiPly device. The new software allows for multiple constructions of up to 9-ply. The possibility of equipping the machine for processing PE-/PP tapes and monofilaments provides the customers with additional material flexibility. The two spindle gauges 670 and 830 millimetres enormously widen the yarn count range from 235 to 33,000 dtex, enabling both very fine and very coarse yarns to be processed in high quality on the TechnoCorder TC2.
The delivery speed of 400 metres/min is world class in twisting industrial yarns. The TechnoCorder TC2 guarantees excellent yarn quality and allows for twist packages with high density and perfect appearance thanks to the process monitoring, optimum yarn path geometry as well as gentle and low-tension thread guidance. To increase productivity even further, the High Speed Package (HSP) was developed, which increases the unwinding speed to 150 m/min (cross-wound package) and 180 m/min (flanged bobbin) when using a campanello.
Energy-optimised drives and the slim yarn balloon enhance the machine’s energy balance. The innovative spindle concept and ergonomic arrangement of the main elements ensure the particularly high operating convenience. (GK)
