Saurer adds value to Autocoro 8 with E³ philosophy
At ITMA ASIA, Saurer had unveiled its E³ brand which stands for Energy, Economy and Ergonomics and which offers textile manufacturers triple added value and helps hike profitability of textile companies.
“E³ also helps the customers of Schlafhorst to improve their competitiveness, increase sales and profit and capture new, lucrative market share,” Saurer said in a press release.
E³ is being followed up by Schlafhorst, a manufacturer of spinning and winding machines by gearing itself to the relevant targets of the spinning mills like energy, economy and ergonomics.
“The customer's yarn production should consume less energy, generate a higher economic return and make fewer demands on operators,” it added.
According to Saurer, applying the principle of E³ on the Autocoro 8 led to double-digit cost reductions and productivity increases.
Citing an example, it said, the revolutionary single-drive technology of the Autocoro opened up new horizons for rotor spinning mills by smashing barriers imposed by central belt drives and revolutionising rotor spinning.
The single drive is of supreme importance for energy efficiency as the rotor drive accounts for half of the energy consumed by conventional rotor spinning machines.
As rotor speeds increase, energy consumption goes through the roof on belt-driven machines risking economic efficiency of production of mills that use centrally driven rotor spinning machines.
Saurer added that only the Autocoro 8 has been able to liberate spinning mills from this destructive predicament.
The Autocoro 8 with its revolutionary single-drive technology and new energy-optimised motors uses 20 per cent less energy than the most energy-efficient conventional belt machine at the same rotor speed.
The saving is even greater at high rotor speeds, which has made double-digit cost reductions possible thereby achieving economies on a scale that hasn't been seen in the industry for years.
The Autocoro 8 offers other economic successes with innovative operating options such as Seamless Lot Change and PilotSpin, which eliminate idle running when changing lots and winding sample packages.
Integrated piecing at the spinning position using SyncroPiecing reduces waiting times and increases machine efficiency.
Higher take-up speeds or spinning settings with more frequent piecing cycles thus become more economically viable.
DigiWinding packs at least 10 per cent more yarn onto each package with the same package diameter, normally signifying better machine utilisation and also 10 per cent less packaging and 10 per cent lower shipping costs.
The Saurer Group is a leading, globally active textile enterprise focusing on machinery and components for yarn processing.
Saurer has a turnover of around CHF 1.0 billion and has 4,000 employees working in plants in Switzerland, Germany, Turkey, Brazil, Mexico, USA, China, India and Singapore. (AR)
