New Garnett-e-Controls system launched at ITMA
Sep '11
Garnett Controls Ltd (UK) launched their new generation retrofit control systems for textile machinery at ITMA, Spain aimed at replacing traditional inefficient drive systems with economic, easy to use, and expandable systems.

Utilising the latest in touch screen technology which Garnett pioneered in the retrofit carding sector, the new range of panels are targeted at the company's principal area of activity, carding, spinning and nonwovens, as well as an increasingly wide spectrum of applications both inside and outside the textile sector. Reduction of energy consumption within a plant is a key attribute of the new Garnett-e- Controls system with a number of recent installations returning high savings.

The launch of the latest generation of fibre weight control systems complimented the new operator control interfaces in Barcelona. The new Microweigh XL8+ is the most accurate and advanced card feeding system for carding and technical nonwoven applications including medical textiles where the latest GAMP standards are applicable.

The new model incorporates enhanced data options making on-line quality analysis possible within client's own infrastructure. In addition a new style of efficient anti-vibration mounts is being introduced, further enhancing the proven stability associated with the units.

For higher production applications the Rollaweigh feed control system, which has become a virtual standard in many dry-laid nonwoven plants internationally, provides volumetric continuous control at unlimited production rates. The Rollaweigh 8+ series incorporates a reduction in overall tare weight whilst at the same time enhancing structural stability, and taking advantage of the company's new mounting system.

Data options are increased with seamless integration with the Mill Wizard system, which manages production data from a virtually unlimited range of sources within the client's production plant. The system is modular allowing cost effective initial capital investment whereby clients only pay for what they need, with upgrade modules allowing additional input sources at a later date without the cost of modified mainframe infrastructure. The new hardware and touch screenoptions have also been adopted within Garnett's blending and fibre lubrication systems.
