N. Schlumberger to showcase latest wool spinning knowhow
Hall 1A, Booth R4
World leader in manufacturing of textile machinery dedicated to processing of long fibres, N. SCHLUMBERGER will be showing its leading and latest technologies. Machinery on show from the France based company include the GC40 chain gills, GN8 intersecting drawing machine, ERA 40 combing machine and the new range of worsted and semi-worsted cards.
The GC40 chain gill is a high performance drafter with speeds of up to 600 m per minute, while offering high productivity and quality. The GC40 offers optimal textile control at high speeds and has a high cleaning system and comes with a drafting head with a light moving assembly.
There are 2x60 numbers of fallers and pinning is done through round of flat pins. It has a nip distance of between 32 to 65 mm, with delivery speed of up to 600 m per minute. The machine has drafts between 3-12 and total installed power of 12.8 - 15.6 kW and auto leveller range of +20 to -30 per cent.
The machine needs low maintenance costs, thanks to an optimised mechanical design and is very user-friendly when considering man/machine dialogue. It is also possible to do telediagnostic?s of the machine, which is available as an option.
The new range of worsted and semi-worsted cards are adaptable for wool between 17 and 33 µ. They incorporate a progressive process technology, while respecting the wool fibres. They come with a hopper with continuous flow and constant feeding density and also an integrated suction and also with a possibility of input auto leveller.
The cards come with high power for removing burr and have a low ?Inactive angle?, for a high material yield. The high productivity is based particularly on swift high speed; optimal use of the carding surfaces and working widths up to 3.5 m.
In the ERA 40 combing machine, progressive combing is achieved by a circular comb pinned over 360° and turning at a constant speed by producing tops, featuring new quality standards. It has precise and recordable adjustments, ensuring consistent high levels of cleanliness, while offering reduced operational and maintenance costs.
The ERA 40 works on a specific combing principle, while being very gentle on the fibres and offers fairly high production efficiencies of more than 50 kg per hour for 21/22 µ wool. Adjustments of the nip distance and other parameters are possible from the machine screen or remote, without stopping the machine. The GN8 intersecting drawing machine has been designed and developed on a new intersecting based on the latest design of the chain gill drive, combined with the universal drafting head of GN series. It is designed to process wool or any kind of wool like fibres and is particularly adapted to process delicate, fine and short fibres such as cashmere, silk or fibres with low cohesion.
