When it comes to tuft blending with T-Blend, Trützschler relies on blending accuracy and reproducibility. The self monitoring system convinces with flexible application when blending natural and man-made fibres of different lengths, finenesses and colours. Compared with previous Trützschler tuft feeding installations, the performance of the pans of the new tuft blending system has doubled. The filling process is automatically optimised and weighing is performed more quickly due to a vibration-free threepoint suspension. All of this combined results in increased weighing per unit of time and more volume per discharge. Naturally, the evaluated information is also made available to the higher level Data Management System T-Data.

To ensure the observance of the blending ratio, the only technologies considered suitable are those that precisely weigh the individual components. For this reason, the new Trützschler tuft blending installations T-Blend are also based on the weighing principle. TBlend allows exact dosing of the individual components and – during the second step – blending to a homogeneous material. Thus, precise adherence to the blending ratios over long periods of time and/or within a lot is ensured. The result is always a perfect dosing of the blending components. This rules out a gradual deviation, like for instance with volume measurement, that cannot be avoided due to deviations in degree of opening or ambient atmosphere. Blendcontrol monitors each individual discharge and automatically and permanently corrects any deviations.
