In its 19th year, the international textiles industry exhibition ShanghaiTex will take place from 25-28 November 2019. Saurer Twisting Solutions will welcome customers and will focus on the highly efficient FusionTwister for staple fibre yarns.

“The FusionTwister sets the benchmark for the cost-effective production of two-for-one twisted staple fibre yarns. In order to achieve this, we have taken into account the three main factors affecting our customers’ profitability, namely energy, economics and ergonomics,” the company reports.

The machines’ reliably low energy consumption is an important characteristic for decision-makers, the manufacturer adds. Achieved by means of an optimised spindle drive, as well as a great variety of spindle and feeding sizes for all kinds of applications, it is the main element in the equation of production costs.

Power consumption and costs are closely related, with energy efficiency positively influencing the return on investment, since it is daily challenge to process the maximum feeding weight while keeping electricity usage at a comfortable level. “The machine’s short set-up times, fast air threading and easy handling were key considerations with regard to optimising ergonomics,” the company explains.

With the computer-controlled servo drive system, customers are said to have a high degree of flexibility to wind the yarn onto cross-wound packages with a large variation in shapes and density. Other features adding to the FusionTwister’s versatility are the software upgrade and newly designed computer panel. This is designed to result in better readability and more flexibility, while creating the base for the Saurer mill management system Senses.
