Rotorcraft AG has been encouraged by the positive response with which, both the upgraded version of Rocos and the newly introduced top arm RT3 received at ITMA 2015.

“We are extremely satisfied, both with contracts concluded, as well as with the great interest of customers from all over the world and the new contacts we established,” Andreas Fischer, head of global sales said.

“Rocos Premium 1.21 HDC is the latest and ultimate in mechanical compact spinning and its features allow for a low end break rate at high speeds, while maintaining superior IPI values,” a press release stated.

“Customers also appreciate the concept of Green Compacting which, due to the lack of additional electricity consumption for low air pressure, is an inherent feature of Rocos,” CEO Frank Gossmann too said.

Rocos Premium applies a concept patented by Rotorcraft and consists of a longer than standard apron cradle, which allows to guide the fibres for a significantly longer path than is the case in any other system.

“In addition, Rotorcraft creates a steeper the position of the steel table after the exit from the middle bottom roller, allowing to move the Rocos unit backwards,” the company added.

“Thus, the drafting plane tilts downwards and the fibres get deflected after leaving the apron nip and this deflection creates friction between top apron and fibres which results in reduction of fluff and improved yarn values,” it explained.

According to Rotocraft, the revolutionary top arm RT3 was especially welcomed by mill managers as they immediately recognised the reliability and ease of handling, which the RT3 introduces to the mill.

“Fixed distances between the front and middle top roller eliminate human error that traditional top arms have due to manual distance setting,” chairman Hans Stahlecker also said.

Change of distance between the front and middle top roller rollers is achieved by simple switching the roller holders, which are laid out in different colours for easy identification.

This switch takes only a few seconds per top arm and so the RT3 motto is, don't check millimeters, check colours,” Hans Stahlecker added. (AR)
