Here we are presenting some latest new technology for the world renowned companies for our readers.
The Swiss based SSM Schärer Schweiter Mettler AG, inventor of the electronic yarn traverse system, continued their trend-setting tradition with the presentation of breakthrough technologies.
After the successful introduction at the ITMA in Milan, SSM will show their latest technologies and inventions for the first time in Asia. Special focus lies on the new XENO-platform with the enhanced DIGICONE® 2 winding algorithm, enabling a 10- 20% increase on dye package density with same dyeing recipe. For the first time ever the SSM X-Series will be shown to the public. The machines (TWX-W/D, PWXW and PSX-W/D) are the most economized winding solution, reduced to the max yet maintaining highest flexibility for any cost efficient winding application.
Machines for the following applications will be presented:
- Dye Package Winding/Rewinding (including Technical Textiles)
- Assembly Winding (doubling)
- Air Texturing
- Sewing Thread Finish Winding
Besides the displayed applications, SSM offers renowned machines for False Twist Texturing, Air Covering, Draw Winding, Yarn Singeing and Conventional Covering. Together with the introduction of the XENO-platform and the X-Series, SSM is demonstrating their market leadership. SSM looks forward to inspiring and interesting discussions concerning open projects using their latest developments.
