SSM Schärer Schweiter Mettler AG will show the latest applications at ITMA Asia. Swiss-based SSM Schärer Schweiter Mettler AG is the inventor of the electronic yarn traverse system. Based on the experience accumulated, SSM is able to provide a proper solution for the most economical and flexible yarn production.
After the successful introduction of the XENO-platform in 2016 and the X-Series in 2017, SSM has extended the range of applications on these platforms. With the brand new drum winder the power consumption per spindle is lower than ever (down to 35 watt, depending on parameter settings). The small pitch and integrated control cabinet maximise the space utilisation. Thanks to the new developed and single controlled motor, it is the ideal machine for an energy efficient rewinding of cones used in the weaving, warp knitting and circular knitting process. The new drum winder, named CWX-W, is also available for assembly winding as CWX-D.
In the top quality segment, SSM customer can now benefit from a wider range of applications, such as fancyflex options for the production of slubs and thick & thin effects, controlled overfeed variations, creation of neps and intermittent intermingling of drawn textured yarn (DTY). Another benefit is the maximised productivity and profit, when using the DIGICONE 2 for the XENO-platform to increase the dye package density with unchanged dyeing recipes.
Last but not least SSM is exhibiting the winding machine for the preparation of low-density muffs made of high-elastic yarns, which enables to preserve the highest possible residual elasticity of the yarn throughout the dyeing process.
Besides the displayed applications in winding (including assembly and sewing thread winding) and air texturing, SSM provides a wide range of renowned textile machines.
A detailed overview about SSM machinery and supported applications of the textile process chain can be found under winding solutions.
