Rieter is set to present its new systems, components, and services at the India ITME (International Textile Machinery Exhibitions Society) 2022 in Uttar Pradesh, India, from December 8 – 13, 2022, in hall 10, booth H10C11. The company’s technology portfolio is designed to help customers succeed in markets shaped by rising energy and raw material costs.

The company will display the Autoconer X6, the key machine for highest efficiency. The automatic winding machine Autoconer X6 perfectly completes the Rieter ring and compact-spinning systems. The machine serves as the final quality assurance in the ring and compact-spinning process and is key to the performance of the subsequent process stages. The Multilink system with Multilot offers maximum flexibility to handle a different type of yarn. The latest splicer generation OZ1 and OZ2 provides an optimum splice quality based on an open prism. With only two prisms spinning mills can splice the entire spectrum of cotton yarns as well as blends. They are also used for the splicing of cotton-based elastic core yarns in combination with the Elastosplicer. The splice zone exhibits an impressive elasticity in the fabric, the company said in a press release.

Next on display will be the Rieter compacting devices – COMPACTapron, COMPACTeasy and COMPACTdrum. These are the right solutions for every application. Spinning mills can change quickly between ring and compact yarn and offer customers a broader product range. This gives them an edge in the market. Rieter offers solutions for the integration of recycled raw material into yarn production to help close the textile loop and make fashion more circular. Both rotor and ring yarns can be produced with a considerable amount of mechanically recycled fibres.

The company will present the webshop ESSENTIALorder, which visualises which Rieter machines and systems are available inside each spinning mill. It offers a personalised shopping experience and facilitates order management, enabling spinning mills to optimise their internal stock levels. ESSENTIALorder is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Next on display is the ROBOspin, the solution for personnel shortages. The piecing robot ROBOspin reduces personnel requirements in the ring spinning section by 50 per cent. The robot also attains productivity increases thanks to higher spindle speeds at equal or higher efficiency.

SSM is presenting NEO-FD, the assembly-winding machine for precision wound packages for twisting. It meets all requirements for efficient production. The machine features the auto-doffing option and the online back-pressure system for low and high package densities. With ergonomic design and proven technology, the machine cuts maintenance and service costs to a minimum. Temco’s CoolFlow texturing discs offer longer lifetime thanks to a brand-new geometry and the latest polyurethane technology. The texturing discs now generate a disc surface that operates at a lower temperature, resulting in slower ageing and abrasion.
