Austria’s technology group, Andritz, has successfully started up its latest-generation tearing line for spinning grade fibres delivered to Sasia at its Ribeirão premises, Portugal. As the first of its kind in Portugal, the machine contains the latest Andritz Laroche innovation for fibre opening, featuring a new-generation pinning configuration.

The scope of supply includes a seven-cylinder Jumbo tearing machine dedicated to spinning grade fibres. Andritz has worked closely with Sasia for more than half a century, offering both cutting-edge solutions for recycling as well as every possible fine-tuning customisation to support Sasia’s goals. Sasia’s plant now has four state-of-the-art Andritz Laroche tearing lines, the company said in a press release.

A pioneer in the textile recycling industry since its foundation in 1952, Sasia is engaged in the circular economy with the aim of reducing textile waste by turning it into usable raw material again, increasing ability to compete as well as promoting innovation and sustainability. This order not only underlines Andritz’s position as the leading supplier worldwide of textile recycling lines, but also highlights its outstanding ability to bring continuous improvement with sustainable solutions and versatility to its customers

“This equipment will drive the company towards greater productivity and to greater value-added production, reinforcing its capacity to develop distinguished products through innovative technologies that contribute to the progress of the value chain,” Miguel Silva, CEO of Sasia, said in a statement.
