SSM debuts two machines at ShanghaiTex

SSM, a Swiss supplier of precision winding machines in the fields of dyeing, weaving and sewing thread preparation, has exhibited two new product launches for the first time at the ShanghaiTex 2017, which took place last month.

“The PWX-CTM, for cone-to-muff, and the PWX-MTC, for muff-to-cone winding, generated large interest,” the company reports. “SSM was very pleased by the high response on their shared booths.”

This year’s show attracted a large number of visitors. SSM Schärer Schweiter Mettler AG, the inventor of the electronic yarn traverse system, was present on the booth of its agent Union Trading, as well as on the booth of Rieter Components. Two machines for the dye package/rewinding process of high elastic yarns had been exhibited successfully.

“The best solution to maintain a high residual elasticity of elastic polyamide (PA) and polyester (PES) draw textured yarns (DTY) after dyeing is the muff dyeing process with integrated SSM leading yarn winding technology,” the company explains.

“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, SSM PWX-MTC offers the proper solution – regardless whether muffs, hanks, dye packages on dye tubes or coreless dye packages are to be rewound.”

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.
