Bräcker, a manufacturer of key components for ring spinning machines, will show the latest applications at the upcoming ITMA Asia exhibition, which takes place from 15-19 October in Shanghai. The Swiss company will exhibit its well-known, high quality products and present the latest innovations.

“Bräcker’s products enable spinning mills to increase their production output at an efficient price-performance ratio. The company will demonstrate the ability to generate additional customer value, by utilising its expertise in ring spinning,” the manufacturer reports.

Higher efficiency

The surface treatment of the Onyx travellers facilitates a higher efficiency, according to the manufacturer. The improved gliding characteristic is said to allow for an increase of the spindle speed by up to +1000 rpm and prolong the life of the traveller by up to +50%. On top of that the running-in period is considerably reduced.

The large contact surface between SFB traveller and Orbit ring allows for increased spindle speeds even with fibres like viscose or with fibres, tending to thermal damage, e.g. polyester, the company continues. Higher traveller speeds of 10-20% are achieved, compared to the T-flange ring/C-shaped traveller system. To cover the new demands, the SFB traveller portfolio was substantially expanded in regards of traveller profiles and weights.

Berkol multigrinder MGL and MGLQ

The entire range of top rollers and long cots used in a spinning mill can be processed on only one single machine. Any execution of centre guided top roller is ground fully automatically on the Berkol multigrinder. The multigrinder MGL/ MGLQ is a flexible grinding machine for smaller and medium sized spinning mills with up to 50’000 spindles. Operating the machine is done only from the front side of the machine.
