SSM launches 8 new products
SSM showed eight new product launches for the first time in India at the ITME. The SSM X-Series generated a large interest. SSM was overwhelmed by the number of visitors.
The Swiss-based SSM Schärer Schweiter Mettler AG, the inventor of the electronic yarn traverse system, continued their tradition of trend-setting with the presentation of breakthrough technologies. SSM displayed a total of five machines, showing eight new product launches for dye package/rewinding, assembly winding, air texturing and sewing thread finish winding.
One of the most interesting applications was the introduction of the DIGICONE® 2 winding algorithm, enabling a 10-20 per cent increase on dye package density with same dyeing recipe which is only available on the SSM XENO-platform. On the other hand the SSM X-Series are the most economized winding solution, reduced to the max yet maintaining highest flexibility for any cost efficient winding application.
From SSM GIUDICI came the DP5-T which was exhibited in a special single-execution showing fancyflex™ for the production of slubs and thick & thin fancy yarns which gained a large interest. Finally the SSM TK2-20 CT (for cones), KTE (for Kingspools) and TT (for tubes) finish winder for sewing threads (with an electronically controlled tuck-in device) concluded the range of machines shown in Mumbai. Besides the showed applications, SSM can provide solutions for false twist texturing, air covering, draw winding, yarn singeing and conventional covering.
