New UK mill picks Zinser & Schlafhorst technology
Mar '16
Culimeta-Saveguard is setting up one of the most modern cotton spinning plants in the world to produce yarns by installing machinery from Saurer Zinser and Saurer Schlafhorst.

“Culimeta-Saveguard is setting up the plant in the historic buildings of the former Tower Mill in Dukinfield in Tameside, Greater Manchester,” a Saurer press release said.

Culimeta-Saveguard is investing almost £6 million in the new Tower Mill in order to be able to produce premium yarns for UK companies and the raw material will be imported from Barbados, India, Egypt and USA.

“The state-of-the-art machinery for the planned spinning mill comes from Saurer Zinser in Germany,” the press release informed.

Culimeta-Saveguard has ordered Zinser 351 2Impact FX compact spinning machines and will be spinning ultra-fine combed cotton compact yarn in counts from Ne 60 upwards.

The roving will be delivered by the roving frame Zinser 670 and yarn winding will be done on the Saurer Schlafhorst Autoconer 6.

According to Saurer, Culimeta-Saveguard decided on Zinser in order to be sure of meeting the high quality requirements of its exclusive customers.

“The modern Zinser ring spinning machines were therefore the first choice for the production of ultra-fine, combed and compacted cotton yarn,” the German company observed.

The Zinser 351 2Impact FX is fitted with an Impact FX self-cleaning compact unit, while the compact spinning technology combines ultimate process reliability with superior quality and high cost effectiveness.

"We are proud that ring spinning machines from Zinser are being installed in the first new cotton spinning plant to be erected in England," Burcu Sevinis, product manager at Saurer Zinser said. (AR)
