Savio Macchine Tessili Spa is a hundred-plus years old company, established in 1911 at Pordenone, Italy. Savio is the first manufacturer to come out with a breakthrough concept for energy saving in winding: suction on demand.
Savio introduced the new concept winder EcoPulsarS at ITMA at Milan, Italy, in 2015. The unique EcoPulsarS is designed to save up to 30 per cent of the energy used to wind yarn. The EcoPulsarS has no common suction fan - which in the case of conventional automatic winders works all the time and is an energy guzzler. Instead, in the EcoPulsarS each individual spindle has a small suction fan and a waste collection chamber which work only when the yarn end breaks. In other words, when the productive motor (drum motor) is in normal operation, the suction motor does not operate, resulting in significant savings in energy.
In addition, unlike conventional automatic winders with common suction fans, the EcoPulsarS does not need any trench for hot air discharge, which results in reduced civil work for EcoPulsarS installations. Instead, suction is generated close to the application according to the requirement in all spindles, the preparation station, the stripper area, etc.
Flexible cycle - independent operation of upper arm, lower arm and splicer
Intelligent on/off modulation - anti-patterning device that works only on critical diameters
Tensor - online tension monitoring system
Integrated panel - with 15" monitor
Possibility of centralised monitoring
High speed preparation stations
Intelligent feeding system
Modular layout - possibility of providing second station in between the machine for proper distribution of cops
Exclusive features of EcoPulsarS
Suction on demand - individual suction arrangement - offers up to 30 per cent power savings
Increased productivity - up to 10 per cent
No common suction fan and so no exhaust trench required
CCS - Controlled Cut System - for less/no repeat cycle
High suction pressure on consecutive attempts
Flexibility of positioning wax - above/ below clearer
MESDAN 985 - newly designed air splicer - with 2 air controls
Double damper tension device - with finger system; more precise and effective
Cyclone waste collection - not disturbing production; no need to stop machine for cleaning
New designed heavy duty cradle with touch sensors
LED illumination for faster reach and identification
To maintain high quality standards, most of the components used in the Savio winders are manufactured within the Savio group:
Drum, twin splicers from Savio
Electronics and PCBs from Eutron
Electronic Yarn Clearers (EYC) from Loepfe
Air, water and thermal splicers are from Mesdab
- Monitoring software from BMS Vision
Savio is the only winder manufacturer having a huge set up in India for after-sales support.
The service headquarters at Coimbatore with more than 30 qualified engineers and a fully loaded spares centre is in operation to extend customer support after sales. A well-equipped electronic lab is situated at Coimbatore for PCB related support. The technical support office helps customers on trials on simulated conditions on customer materials for better results. The facility also has a training centre and showroom of machines to train the customers' technicians in depth. A similar service office with training facility is also available at Ludhiana with a dedicated team of experts. Offices at locations like Ahmedabad, Bhopal, Guntur and Kolhapur take care of regional service activities.
With its relentless focus on research and development, Savio has always been the front runner in bringing new technologies to the textile industry, for example:
First to introduce link (introduced with very first model, Espero)
First to introduce 72 spindles machines when others were at 60
First to introduce 80 spindles machine
First to introduce 110 spindles machine
First to come out with the concept winding EcoPulsarS with suction on demand
SAVIO has an installed base of 180 EcoPulsarS in India, which includes some leading mills, namely Trident Group, Vardhman Group, Sutlej Group, Ramco Group, Sudarsham Mills, Laxmi Mills, etc.
A.T.E. and Savio joined hands in 2016 to bring the best the technologies to the Indian textile industry. The Indian textile industry has welcomed this partnership as it combines technology, service, experience and expertise of both the leaders that would help the industry in a big way in its modernisation drive.
