Rotorcraft shows next-gen spinning frame at ITMA Asia
Nov '16
Rotorcraft, an innovator in spinning technology based in Switzerland, presented its new ring spinning frame called Next Generation Spinning (NGS) at the ITMA Asia 2016 exhibition. This spinning frame meets all the requirements of a 21st century mill and lacks setting screws in order to avoid any operating errors, which are common with ring frames.

The setting of the drafting system of the new spinning frame is achieved by using exchangeable elements in different colours, while the distance between the drafting system and the spinning ring remains constant. Bottom aprons can be replaced individually while the frame is running. Additionally, a low-pressure channel is built in between the working elements of both sides of the spinning frame, rather than above the frame. The channel is large enough to fit the suction tubes as well as the low-pressure elements for pneumatic compact spinning.

The two sides of the frame work independently, and all bearings of the working elements are sealed for life. The result is equalised tension and evenness of yarn at a constant production speed. This allows the mill to produce good quality yarn and achieve a high overall output.

The next generation of compact spinning systems Green Compact was also on display at the company's booth at ITMA Asia. This system attains the yarn quality improvements introduced by the first generation of compacting systems, while saving $6 to $8 in energy cost per spindle per year. It therefore performs more economically and sustainably compared to old generation compacting systems. (KD)
