A.T.E. has always provided the best technology to the Indian textile industry. A.T.E. has helped us throughout the project stage and even now it is closely monitoring the machines through frequent visits and updating us with the latest technical information.
Can you explain your criteria for choosing Truetzschler draw-frames?
During our project discussion we compared draw-frames of several manufacturers. Here Truetzschler had a slight edge over others. We even gathered information from other spinners in the region. It was very important for us to have good draw-frame in our process as it is the last quality check in the process. In conclusion, we found that Truetzschler machines were the best in the market. We are glad that it was a right decision as now we are enjoying the benefits of Truetzschler draw-frames.
Could you please explain in more detail the Truetzschler edge?
Based on our experience of Truetzschler machines, here are the main reasons:
a. Latest technology b. Timely after sales service
c. Consistent and competitive quality output
What is that most important feature which makes the Truetzschler draw-frame mill-friendly?
Features like interchangeability of electrical and electronic components in cards and draw-frames ensure very low down time and less inventory for us. Changing the hank hardly takes a minute and there is no need to replace any gears. All quality and production data can be seen on the colour display along with the running parameters.
Based on your experience will you recommend Truetzschler draw-frames to other spinners?
We strongly recommend Truetzschler draw-frames to everybody. Our technical team is of the opinion that Truetzschler machines are user friendly and very easy to maintain. The sturdy German technology ensures high quality and low maintenance costs.
