Schlafhorst delivers Autoconer 6 to first customer

The first of the Autoconer 6, Schlafhorst's new automatic package winder has been delivered to customers at the beginning of the year.

“The German textile machinery manufacturer had presented the Autoconer 6, geared to E³ at ITMA 2015,” a press release said.

According to Schlafhorst, E³ is synonymous with triple added value in the energy, economics and ergonomics categories.

A string of unique innovations has enabled Schlafhorst to reduce the energy consumption of the Autoconer 6 by up to 20 per cent compared with its predecessor.

A key contributory element here is the new Eco-Drum-Drive System in the self adjusting winding unit.

Due to the latest drive and bearing technology, the Eco-Drum-Drive System saves a considerable amount of energy.

“In addition, the suction system motor and frequency inverter always work at the most effective operating point due to improved performance efficiency,” Schlafhorst observed.

The new Autoconer 6 also achieves a double-digit increase in productivity and even the basic Autoconer 6 model is 6 per cent more productive than its predecessor.

It has the LaunchControl, the latest process intelligence for a slip-free, self-optimised start-up, while higher acceleration and faster deceleration of the winding system are possible.

In combination with the new suction tube, another innovation; SmartCycle cuts unproductive cycle times, while upper yarn faults are reduced as far as possible, while optimised cycle sequences minimise downtimes.

TensionControl, the standard yarn tension control system on the Autoconer 6, prevents unnecessary tension breaks during bobbin unwinding.

With the technologically optimised, high-performance Speedster FX module and the new SmartJet function with which the doffer supports the upper yarn search, an additional 6 per cent productivity can also be gained.

“Intelligent sensor technology and smart process control push the textile-technology limits outwards of its own accord and winds at the most productive settings virtually without any operator input,” it informed.

The functional design and optimised process sequences minimise downtimes and malfunctions, so that manual intervention by the staff is practically unnecessary.

Autocalibration of the splicer feeders and suction tubes relieves the burden on the operators substantially, because manual settings are rendered superfluous.

The X-Change doffer assumes additional functions too as with Tube Check it detects tubes that are not round via laser and removes them automatically.

This not only enhances the package quality, it increases staff safety and effectively aids the upper yarn search with Smart-Jet, meaning that operator intervention is rarely required.

Even the time and labour-intensive consumption measurements for optimising the energy utilisation of processes are no longer required on the new Autoconer 6. (AR)
