50 million cotton swabs/hour with Trützschler cards
Together with Rosink Systeme, Trützschler has been selling installations for the production of card slivers used for making cotton swabs for many years. The web of a Trützschler cotton card is split into four segments. These web sections result in 4 fine card slivers. They have a count of approx. 1.5 g/m. The four slivers are simultaneously coiled into four cans by means of a Rosink Quad Coiler. Thanks to the high sliver quality and the high production of the machine, this system is extremely efficient.
Today, more than 80 Trützschler and Rosink machine combinations are on the market. The sliver that can be produced with these systems is sufficient for approx. 50,000,000 cotton swabs per hour.
To further increase efficiency, FALU has recently introduced cotton swab machines with integrated drafting system. The feed sliver used here has a weight of 3-4 g/m.
To fully utilise the potential of the Trützschler High Production Card in these cases as well, the Rosink sliver splitting system has been adapted to the Trützschler Card TC 11-H, allowing a production of 4 slivers a 4 g/m. Thus, the card production is more than doubled again. All the advantages and control systems of the Trützschler TC 11-H are utilised; they ensure a perfect sliver evenness at maximum efficiency of the total system.
