In Barcelona, Saurer will present a range of new products, demonstrating its drive for continual innovation at the upcoming ITMA 2019, which takes place from 20-26 June. With its E³ principle, the company acknowledges its responsibility to create sustainable machinery.

“Our new products require less energy and fewer resources while featuring optimised ergonomics to enhance user-friendliness. In addition, we are increasingly incorporating intelligent technology to augment the human effort. Our focus is on meeting the needs of investors and operators of spinning mills as they strive to reach their goals,” the manufacturer says.

“Since the beginning, our innovations have been the driving force behind our customers’ creations – from yarns to garments, tyres and artificial turf. We also understand that we need to address the unique needs of each client, which could range from funding issues to energy concerns. In addition, a number of Saurer business lines are celebrating anniversaries this year, the most long-lived of which, our embroidery business, was founded 150 years ago.”

Spinning solutions

The innovations that Saurer Spinning Solutions will show at ITMA include new machinery, automation and digitisation technologies, as well as quality-determining components and services. Saurer’s solution approach is also integrated into the product portfolio of the segment.

“The extension of the value chain from bale to package allows Saurer to have complete control over yarn quality along the entire process. While focusing on delivering perfect package quality for each spinning application from one source, we have divided the systems into ring spinning (Zinser System) and open-end spinning (Schlafhorst System),” the company explains.

“Our Zinser System focuses on flexibility and intelligent linkage in high-speed ring spinning and features a new modular structure and intelligent RFID-based material flow. In open-end spinning, the Schlafhorst System embodies versatility with solutions for different yarn structures.”

Innovative technologies

The Saurer Technologies Segment is also presenting an array of innovative products. Its direct cabling machine CableCorder CC5 is in its fifth generation – more economical and features a smart spindle concept, as well as smart quality control and software solutions. Customers in the carpet yarn sector can appreciate the new series of CarpetCabler/CarpetTwister machines.

“We will also be launching the latest generation of the CompactTwister, which has already demonstrated its dominance in the market with sales of over four million spindles,” the company adds.

Entering IIoT solutions market

With the launch of a device-monitoring system for all ball bearings, Saurer enters the market for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions. The system allows the constant condition monitoring of every single Temco bearing within a plant. Identifying positions with possible defects before serious malfunctions occur enables customers to take a proactive approach. “Predictive maintenance based on the real load situation will become a reality,” the manufacturer reports.
