New Trützschler Card TC 11 to take centre stage in ITMA

Trützschler Spinning introduces a newly developed card in Barcelona, the TC 11. Card development is an ongoing process with Trützschler. New findings and ideas are immediately integrated in the current production. However, traditionally a larger step is taken on the occasion of the ITMA in Europe by introducing a new card type with clearly improved production and quality parameters. In Barcelona, this will be the Trützschler Card TC 11.

The new Trützschler Card TC 11 stands for low capital expenditures and low production costs. This was made possible by a larger carding area and unprecedented accuracy. The result is a 30 – 40% increase in productivity.

Naturally, the established roll diameters of the predecessor machines have been adopted. The same applies to the cross-section of the carding elements and flats.

The capital expenditures for the cards, the building and the filter system are lowered. Increased card production means fewer cards. This results in a reduction of capital expenditures. Therefore, the performance per square meter building area increases. This means lower investments for new buildings. Or it allows a carding capacity increase in the same space by replacing the cards.

Operating costs are reduced due to lower capital costs, lower power consumption and smaller filter systems. The specific power consumption is at the lowest level. With the TC 11, savings of approx. 20% electrical energy for each kilogram carded sliver are realised. This adds up to 2,000.- to 4,000.- € Euro per card and year. The filter system is also more compact and uses smaller fans. Thus, it uses less electrical energy.

The machine has been completely new designed. It takes just one look at the structural design to reveal the new concept. The card frame supports only the drum directly. Our experience with the Trützschler Setting Optimisation System T-Con has led to a new way of attaching the preopening roller and the doffer. Thus, thermally induced changes to settings are reduced. The sensor and software based T-Con system is of course also an integral part of the Card TC 11.

During development it quickly became obvious that the required accuracy cannot be achieved with conventional flats. Therefore, the Trützschler MAGNOTOP system is exclusively used for the TC 11.

In addition to increased production, these measures also result in a quality improvement. Never before was card sliver cleaner, free of neps and uniform.

The man-made fibre card TC 11-S was simultaneously developed with the TC 11. This machine is equipped with special clothings and features one needled licker-in with increased diameter. All fibre-carrying elements are made of stainless steel.
