Production commenced in the plant in Vadodara, in Gujarat, in mid-September. Morarjee Textiles has ordered a fully automated production line from the German textile machinery manufacturer. It comprises seven brand-new ZinserSpeed 5A machines each with 160 spindles in 220 gauge, 22 ZinserImpact 72 machines with 1,824 spindles each and 22 Autoconer 6, type V package winders.

“We are proud that this Indian textile company, which is steeped in tradition and manufactures to the highest quality standards, has decided in favour of the new Zinser 72 ring spinning machine and the new ZinserSpeed 5A from our Indian manufacturing plant,” says Ralph Knecht of Saurer Zinser.
