ITMA Asia in Shanghai - the first exhibition of the complete Saurer Group, proved to be a very successful event for the Group. Being the only machine manufacturer launching three completely new machines, the Saurer booth was attracting a large number of visitors from both China and abroad. The new sustainability label: E3 - the triple added value that was launched in Shanghai, was extremely well received by customers, as the label focuses on all essential features of a machine. The first Saurer press conference held during the exhibition saw the Group´s CEO, Daniel Lippuner and the Business Units CEO´s highlight the drive, passion and innovation with which the Group had entered the exhibit.
During the press conference Daniel Lippuner revealed bits of what Saurer has been concentrating on the first year of the ¨new era¨. The concentration on customers, the decentralization of the internal structure that allows decisions to be taken fast and close to the customer is paying off. The applause the Group received for the new products combined with the new customer oriented drive makes a promise of a bright future. Like every birthday, the first birthday of Saurer on the 4th of July 2014, was celebrated worldwide enthusiastically. The birthday cakes were arranged worldwide for all the employees and festivities included poems to the ¨young one¨ in Germany as well as tree planting ceremonies in India. The pictures that were received were such of happy faces. Passion for people is something that Saurer wrote on its milestones a year ago and smiling faces worldwide confirm that the road taken is the right one. May the continuous years be as successful as the first one. Happy birthday Saurer !
Saurer Schlafhorst: Unveiling crowd pullers BD 6 and Zinser 72
Visitors excited by BD 6 and Zinser 72. The market and innovation leader Schlafhorst presented a comprehensive technology portfolio comprising four machines at ITMA. The new rotor spinning machine BD 6 and the ring and compact spinning machines in the new Zinser 72 series proved to be crowd pullers.
Chairman of the Saurer board Pan Xueping and Saurer CEO Daniel Lippuner unveiled a real eye catcher at the exhibition in the innovative BD 6 rotor spinning machine in the new SAURER livery. With its DigiPiecing piecing technology and highly precise winding technology, the BD 6 bridges the gap between the Autocoro class and the semi-automatic segment. It defines a completely new type of machine with which customers achieve faster, better and more economical production.
The new Zinser 72 ring and compact spinning machines, likewise resplendent in their new livery, were the second highlight. Super-long and super-productive, these machines with up to 1,920 spindles and speeds of up to 25,000 rpm give customers of Schlafhorst unique competitive advantages. At the same time, they save energy due to the new bilateral suction system.
Autoconer X5 occupies an unrivalled position
The Autoconer X5 was once again the focus of interest. Schlafhorsts automatic package winder produces individual package formats at the touch of a button thanks to the globally successful, software controlled yarn displacement system PreciFX.
Customers of Schlafhorst can thus design packages that exactly meet the requirements of downstream processing stages. Efficient, quality packages become a unique feature of successful spinning mills in this way. At winding speeds of up to 2,000 m/min and with the new material flow technology of the Autoconer X5, companies also increase the productivity and efficiency of their entire ring spinning process.
Autocoro 8 - a benchmark in rotor spinning
Last but not least, Schlafhorst also exhibited its flagship in rotor spinning, the Autocoro 8, at the exhibition in Shanghai. The Autocoro 8 with its innovative single-drive technology is still the undisputed benchmar
