In the run-up to ITMA Asia +CITME 2016, to be held from October 21 to 25, 2016 in China, Nicolai Strauch, press officer for VDMA Textile Machinery Association, representing medium-sized companies in the capital goods industry, spoke to VDMA member companies about their role in developing sustainable solutions from fibre to the final textile product.

Hermann Selker, head of marketing Trützschler group, a specialist in fibre preparation for the yarn spinning and nonwovens industries said, “Our new tool, Wastecontrol, improves the economic efficiency of the blowroom by raw material savings. Wastecontrol is an optical sensor that determines the composition of the waste. The sensor detects how many fibres and how many trash particles are contained in the waste.”

“Our latest automatic rotor spinning machine helps achieve energy efficiency. Its individual spinning drive position cuts the energy consumption of rotor spinning mills by nearly 30 per cent,” said Martin Folini, CEO of Saurer Group, developers of machines for spinning, winding, and embroidering, and Schlafhorst Zinser business unit Saurer.

According to Benjamin Mayer, managing director, Mayer & Cie., builders of circular knitting machines, their oiler system SENSOBlueRS used in knitting machines, helps in less consumption of oil as compared to knitting machines on conventional systems. The patented recycling process is based on cleaning and reusing needle oil that has already been used by the knitting machine.

Hans Gerhard Wroblowski, area sales director South East Asia and head of denim technology at A. Monforts Textilmaschinen, makers of stenter frames and loop dryers said, “Our new machine, Eco applicator, comprises a highly efficient adjustable moistening system that enables thermal energy and resources to be utilised in a target manner. The Eco Line system reduces energy losses and energy use, increases thermal transfer, and keeps the drying energy on the textile material longer.”

Expressing his views on sustainability, Karl Hesse, senior sales engineer for Körting Hannover, producers of caustic recovery plants, said, “Caustic recovery plants make production processes in the textile industry more sustainable and also decrease the operating costs significantly. They help recover the caustic soda used for mercerising at the end of the process, which helps to reduce environmental impact significantly.” (GK)
