Techtextil is the leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens and will again attract many expert visitors to Frankfurt from 9 to 12 May 2017. In a recent release Saurer Group has informed that its subsidiary Allma is delighted to welcome customers and visitors to its stand D02 in hall 3.0 and inform them about the latest developments in twisting technology for industrial yarns. On the two-for-one twisting machine TechnoCorder TC2 for industrial yarns for example up to 9-ply yarn constructions can now be processed. The innovative FlexiPly device allows for the production of innovative hybrid yarns.

High-quality premium yarns with more flexibility

The company has informed that the TechnoCorder TC2 is characterised in particular by its unique flexibility in production, material and yarn counts of industrial yarns. Self-sufficient spindle drives allow for such production flexibility that individual items can be processed on each separate spindle. With the innovative FlexiPly software users can economically produce the hybrid yarn constructions expected by the market on the TechnoCorder TC2. Through the use of different materials such as polyamide and aramid and different twists, yarns with new characteristics are created for technical textiles, tires and mechanical rubber goods (MRG).

The release informs that the new FlexiPly software allows for multiple constructions of up to 9-ply. The possibility of equipping the machine for processing PE-/PP tapes and monofilaments provides the customers with additional material flexibility.

The two spindle gauges 670 and 830 mm enormously widen the yarn count range from 235 to 33,000 dtex, enabling both very fine and very coarse yarns to be processed in high quality on the TechnoCorder TC2.

High productivity and top quality

The company told that the delivery speed of 400 m/min is world class in twisting industrial yarns. The TechnoCorder TC2 guarantees excellent yarn quality and allows for twist packages with high density and perfect appearance because of the process monitoring, optimum yarn path geometry as well as gentle and low-tension thread guidance. To increase productivity even further, the High Speed Package (HSP) was developed, which increases the unwinding speed to 150 m/min (cross-wound package) and 180 m/min (flanged bobbin) when using a campanello.

Energy-optimised drives and the slim yarn balloon enhance the machine’s energy balance. The innovative spindle concept and ergonomic arrangement of the main elements ensure the particularly high operating convenience.
