This year marks a new milestone for the fifth ITMA ASIA + CITME 2016 exhibition when it opens with the largest show in the series since its inception. A total of 1,673 exhibitors from 28 countries and economies are showcasing a wide array of machinery and solutions to an expected visitorship of around 100,000 during the five-day exhibition. The combined exhibition grosses over 170,000 square meters of exhibition space – 12 per cent larger than the last edition. It is the biggest showing since the first edition. The exhibition held on 21-25 October 2016. Textile Focus Technical Team closely monitored the exhibition. Here we are presenting some latest new technology for the world renowned companies for our readers.
The fully-automated, double-sided air-jet spinning machine with 200 spinning units, up to 6 robots and a delivery speed of 500 m/min ensures economical and flexible production. The recently showcased J 26 automated air-jet spinning machine at ITMA + CITME 2016 has striking advantages among other air-jet spinning machines. The P 26 polyester attachment ensures 100 % polyester spinning with long running intervals without manual cleaning. High performance is supported by the piecing preparation system with reduced piecing time. The winding unit ensures optimal package build-up and therefore higher package weight. Technological innovations and adapted settings enable to produce soft Com4®jet yarns.
With the new P 26 attachment 100 per cent polyester can be spun on J 26. The P 26 system applies liquid to the fibres in front of the twisting zone. This liquid creates benefit for reducing polyester deposits on the technology components, prolonging production times with stable yarn quality, higher yarn strength, lower yarn hairiness, etc. The P 26 system is connected to tap water which is filtered so that no sediments can enter the system. The integrated Rieter clearer Q 10A checks the yarn quality. Special clearing channels monitor the P 26 system at each spin unit.
