A state of the art Brückner multi-purpose coating line for technical textiles has been successfully commissioned and is operating since the beginning of 2018 at Sri Venkatalakshmi Spinners (SVS) in Udumalpet, a textile town about 70 km from Coimbatore City, in the South of India. SVS was established in 1980 and now focuses primarily on the spinning of different yarn qualities, the manufacturing of various types of fabrics by weaving, circular knitting and warp knitting, and the manufacturing of various coated materials and technical textiles.

SVS strives to maintain its environmental sustainability efforts by generating its own electric power through grid-connected wind mill and it is currently working on a large-scale LT photovoltaic power generator project. After a careful consideration of today’s business, the change in the technological environment and its capability, SVS has established a modern coating infrastructure to become an integrated value-added manufacturer of technical textile products.

The company started its technical textiles production in December 2017 under the name of SVS Advanced Fabrics – (SAF). The project is one of the most modern and advanced production units in India. The company currently mainly specialises in high-tech preparation for digital printing, automotive fabrics, functional textiles for sports and leisure, as well as fabrics for architectural purposes.

SAF has partnered with Brückner Textile Technologies to ensure that the machine will be customised exactly to the company’s needs. Brückner’s local partner, Voltas (Textile Machinery Division) supports the customer with the troubleshooting and spare parts supply. The modern Brückner coating line is equipped with the best in class heat consistency, environmentally friendly heated with LPG fuel.

An integrated Zimmer, Austria coating head with a high precision magnet roller coating head and a screen coating and printing facility, ensures in combination with a Mahlo (Germany) QMS weight measurement system that the coated products (mainly preparation for printing) always meet the specifications consistently at high levels, the company says.

“SVS choose Brückner because it was the clear leader and a strong knowledge partner with a very long history of experience in the technical textiles industry,” explained Gopinath Bala, CEO and Technical Director.

“Brückner had adopted to technical textiles and started providing machinery to the industry way back when Europe started its ventures in technical textiles. SAF is a new company venturing into technical textiles, having a strong knowledge partner in various spectrum of products and processes to support us was the main reason for us to choose to partner with Brückner. Additionally, Brückner’s equipment is of a very high quality, precisely engineered, low-maintenance and consumes the lowest energy levels.”
