SSM Schärer Schweiter Mettler will show the latest applications at ITMA Asia, to be held in Shanghai at the National Exhibition and Convention Centre from 15-19 October 2018, including the world premiere of the new drum winder.

After the successful introduction of the XENO-platform in 2016 and the X-Series in 2017, SSM has extended the range of applications on these platforms. With the brand-new drum winder, the power consumption per spindle is lower than ever, according to the company. The small pitch and integrated control cabinet are said to maximise the space utilisation.

“Thanks to the new developed and single controlled motor, it is the ideal machine for an energy efficient rewinding of cones used in the weaving, warp knitting and circular knitting process. The new drum winder, named CWX-W, is also available for assembly winding as CWX-D,” the manufacturer explains.

In the top-quality segment, SSM customers can now benefit from a wider range of applications, such as fancyflex options for the production of slubs and thick and thin effects, controlled overfeed variations, creation of ‘neps’ and intermittent intermingling of drawn textured yarn (DTY). Another benefit is the maximised productivity and profit, when using the DIGICONE 2 for the XENO-platform to increase the dye package density with unchanged dyeing recipes.

“Last but not least, SSM is exhibiting the winding machine for the preparation of low-density muffs made of high-elastic yarns, which enables to preserve the highest possible residual elasticity of the yarn throughout the dyeing process,” the company concludes. “Besides the displayed applications in winding (including assembly and sewing thread winding) and air texturing, SSM provides a wide range of renowned textile machines.”
