SSM, a Swiss supplier of precision winding machines in the fields of dyeing, weaving and sewing thread preparation, will show its newest textile machines at ShanghaiTex for the first time, next month. The exhibition is held in Shanghai from 27-30 November, at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre.

After the successful introduction of the XENO platform in Asia in 2016, SSM has put the focus on the X-Series this year. With the latest application for cone-to-muff and muff-to-cone winding, SSM says it offers a highly flexible and economical system.

To maintain a high residual elasticity of elastic polyamide (PA) and polyester (PES) draw textured yarns (DTY) after dyeing, the muff dyeing process with integrated SSM leading yarn winding technology is the best solution, according to the manufacturer.

The new SSM PWX-CTM is said to enable the preparation of low-density muffs, while maintaining the highest possible elasticity of the yarn throughout the dyeing process. “For the highest flexible and productive rewinding, the SSM PWX-MTC offers the proper solution; regardless whether muffs, hanks, dye packages on dye tubes or coreless dye packages are to be rewound,” the company reports.

Besides the displayed applications, SSM provides a wide range of textile machines. The company is based in Horgen, Switzerland, and is a subsidiary of the Rieter Group. SSM comprises the companies SSM Schärer Schweiter Mettler AG in Horgen and subsidiaries in Italy and China.
