'Sustainable technology: key for energy saving'

In the run-up to ITMA Asia +CITME 2016, to be held from October 21 to 25, 2016 in China, Nicolai Strauch, press officer VDMA Textile Machinery, representing medium-sized companies in the capital goods industry, spoke to VDMA member companies about how their technologies and concepts can be best put to use for resource efficiency and energy savings.

André Wissenberg, vice president, Oerlikon Manmade Fibers Segment said, “Our latest WINGS technology (Winder Integrated Godet Solution) reduced average energy consumption by 40 per cent per ton of the POY yarn type (Pre-oriented Yarn). The manufacture of textile products and components, machines and systems used for this are traditionally associated with many unfortunate environmental consequences. By applying the latest in scientific and technical expertise, we help to reduce these negative effects to a minimum.”

Jan Siebert, head of Rieter, leading supplier of systems for short-staple fibre spinning said, “The new RSB-D 50 single-head drawframe generation offers a hitherto unattained level of productivity of the highest quality, compared to its predecessor. The new coiler CLEANcoil-PES extends the cleaning cycle for critical polyester fibres by at least 100 per cent. The patented drive concept ECOrized uses 25 per cent fewer belts, saves up to €1,000 in energy costs annually and allows higher output speeds for polyester and combed wool, for example.”

Talking about technological solutions for sustainability, André Imhof, CEO Autefa Solutions, that covers automation and nonwoven technologies said, “The EnRec, Energy Recovery technology for ovens has being continuously improved over the last years. Among the first we equipped complete factory roofs with thermal solar panels to pre-heat the air to 100°C. Since the sun does not send you a bill, it is almost free of charge. We installed block heating power plants to use electrical energy produced by a gas generator and get heat for the ovens free of charge.”

Eric Schöller, managing director, Groz-Beckert said, “The new modules in our expanded warp knitting range. When they are used together with a Groz-Beckert knitting machine needle, perfectly coordinated tools are guaranteed. This, in turn, means that processes run smoothly in every sense, and are not interrupted by errors, thus ensuring maximum productivity while conserving resources.”

Thomas Laissle, product manager, Weko said, “Surface coating is part of the standard procedure in the paper, textile, printing or foil industries, for example. With our rotor, which works like a rapidly rotating disc, the corresponding liquids can be applied without contact and continuously according to a precise quantity specification.”

Axel Pieper, CEO Brückner Trockentechnik said, “We offer for our customers solutions saving resources and energy and helping thus to minimise the ecological footprint. For the finishing of elastic fabrics, we developed an indirect gas heating system with a unique heat-recovery. This system saves energy and prevents the yellowing of elastic fabric despite using a gas heating.” (GK)
