Since 2008, a combined show known as “ITMA ASIA + CITME” has been held in China, scheduled to take place every two years. Taking off in Shanghai, the milestone event features the unique strengths of the ITMA brand and China’s most important textile event -CITME. This move to combine the two shows into one mega high-quality event is strongly supported by all nine CEMATEX European textile machinery associations, CTMA (China Textile Machinery Association) and JTMA (Japan Textile Machinery Association). The fifth edition of the combined show will be held from 21 to 25 October 2016 at the new National Exhibition and Convention Centre (NECC) in Shanghai. Leading textile machineries manufacturing companies showcase their latest innovative technologies in this show. Textile Focus technical team is presenting innovative technologies comp anywise.
Novibra, the leading company in spindle technology and the biggest exporter of spindles worldwide, will present several innovative solutions for spinning mills at ITMA Asia in Shanghai.
Spindles in modern ring spinning machines reach speeds of up to 25,000 rpm. In these high-speed applications energy consumption is an important issue. Novibra is now introducing the new LENA (Low Energy consumption and Noise Absorption) high-speed spindles. LENA design has been developed from well-proven Noise Absorbing System Assembly (NASA), which ensures minimum neck bearing load, vibration and noise level at high speed. The unique wharve diameter of 17,5 mm and the footstep bearing diameter of 3 mm lead to a lower energy consumption. LENA is designed for tube lengths up to 200-210 mm.
Another new product presented at ITMA Asia is the clamping and cutting crown CROCOdoff, which is also available as the version CROCOdoff Forte for coarse yarns. The crown is operated by the spindle speed and has been designed for machines with autodoffer. The improved design of the “teeth” guarantees a reliable clamping and cutting of the yarn. In addition, the CROCOdoff reduces the risk of yarn breakage during start-up, decreases energy consumption, minimizes material loss and reduces maintenance. CROCOdoff is suitable for the use with new machines as well as an upgrade for existing machines.
