The third Rieter air-jet spinning machine J 20 was put into operation right on time for the 200th birthday of the company Hermann Bühler AG in Sennhof (Switzerland). On June 29th, 2012 Bühler opened its doors for its customers around the world. The motto of the customer day was: A passion for spinning for 200-years. Around 140 yarn customers and invited guests from around the world were on hand at this occasion, and used the opportunity among others to appraise the Rieter air-jet spinning machine live.
At the beginning of the Bühler customer day visitors had an opportunity to have their photo taken in the red Rieter armchair from "The Comfort of Competence"-campaign.
At the J 20 the principle of spinning with air was explained and the advantages and characteristics of air-spun yarn were discussed. The red Rieter armchair, familiar from "The Comfort of Competence" - campaign, was also on hand by special request of Bühler. The arriving guests walked like stars across the red carpet to the Rieter armchair and had their photos taken on it. Glowing expressions from the start! As official launch of the customer day there was an aperitif at noon, followed by presentations in the afternoon. The audience showed an active interest in subjects such as the processing of raw materials, yarn manufacture and its finishing. During the subsequent tour of the premises the 140 invited guests had an opportunity to view production at Bühler and to see the Rieter J 20 air-jet spinning machine in operation for the first time. The visitors were impressed by the high production speed and automation of the machine.
The Rieter J 20 air-jet spinning machine offers up to 120 high-production spinning units. It can be equipped for separate production on both machine sides, which means that two different yarn qualities can be spun simultaneously on one machine. With the newly developed spinning unit, the J 20 offers a maximum in yarn quality, productivity and flexibility. The unique quality characteristics of air-spun yarn are reflected in benefits for spinning mills, downstream processors and end-users.
