The Indian spinning industry is likely to become fully automated in many small steps because it is increasingly adopting automation, believes a leading global textile machinery and solutions provider on the basis of its order intake in the country.

“In the last few years, the Indian market has embraced automation in spinning plants very successfully. We have already completed more than 20 projects for various Indian customers in this segment,” Wilhelm Languis, head - Textile Industry Automation of Neuenhauser Maschinenbau GmbH said in a statement. “I believe that the economy will become fully digitised in a series of many, many small steps.”

Neuenhauser has taken many automation projects in India in the last few years, helping its client companies survive in an extremely competitive market, he said. Its primary markets include India and a few other countries.

Elaborating the importance of Indian market for Neuenhauser, he said the company won its largest order till date for roving bobbin and package transport system with palletisation from Welspun manufacturing facility in Anjar, India last year. This site offers a glimpse on how Project Industry 4.0 - the fusion of information technology and machine building - will affect industrial production in India in the future.

Languis informed that 55 kilometres of track with 944 switches were installed just to transport the roving bobbins in the facility. 872 bobbin trolley trains travel on the track, guided and monitored by more than 1,000 sensors. Over 15 kilometres of cable and 2 kilometres of optical waveguides have been installed, so that the enormous plant can be controlled through a single command centre.

Talking further on automation, he asserted that automation has a far more complex role than is made out. Its purpose is not just to lower payroll costs in textile firms, but also to improve the quality of products.

Automatic Handling System (AHS) also provides them with other advantages, such as safe, high-performance product flow through the entire plant configuration, or better use of compact machines and systems. They also help in maintaining a clean, tidy and efficient manufacturing environment and a safe, ergonomically less burdensome work-flow, he added.

“We are already considering Industry 4.0 for our future developments. We have only started, and we have a long way to go,” he concluded.
