SSM Schärer Schweiter Mettler AG, the Swiss inventor of the electronic yarn traverse system, has demonstrated eight new product launches for the first time in India at the ITME show, which took place in Mumbai from 3-8 December 2016.
SSM displayed a total of five machines, showing eight new product launches for dye package / rewinding, assembly winding, air texturing and sewing thread finish winding. According to the manufacturer, the SSM X-Series winding solution for increased flexibility generated a large interest, and the company was overwhelmed by the number of visitors.
One of the most interesting application was the introduction of the DIGICONE 2 winding algorithm, which is said to enable a 10-20% increase on dye package density with same dyeing recipe, which is only available on the SSM XENO-platform.
From SSM Giudici came the DP5-T, which was exhibited in a special single-execution showing fancyflex for the production of slubs, and thick and thin fancy yarns, which gained a large interest, the company reports.
Finally, the SSM TK2-20 CT (for cones), KTE (for Kingspools) and TT (for tubes) finish winder for sewing threads (with an electronically controlled tuck-in device) concluded the range of machines shown in Mumbai. Besides the showed applications, SSM can provide solutions for false twist texturing, air covering, draw winding, yarn singeing and conventional covering.
The Schärer, Schweiter and Mettler companies merged in 1989 to become SSM. In 1999, Stähle-Eltex and SSM merged to develop air texturing technology and to strengthen their leadership position in the marketplace.
With HACOBA as its partner, SSM is also able to offer a complete range of sewing thread finishing machines. The company can also offer a complete portfolio for processed yarns.
Since 2012, SSM Schärer Schweiter Mettler has taken over the activities of Giudici, Italy. Giudici’s strong market position in the field of false twist texturing of high quality fine count Nylon yarns, an application that complements SSM’s established leadership in air texturing, will further expand SSM’s business in the chemical fibre processing industry, the company believes.
