Bräcker to show new spinning machineries at India ITME

November 14, 2016 - Switzerland

Bräcker, Switzerland’s leading supplier of rings and travellers for ring spinning systems and a member of the Rieter Group, is set to present a variety of new textile machineries at India ITME 2016, the India international textile machinery exhibition, to be held from December 3 to 8, 2016, at the Bombay exhibition and convention centre, Mumbai.

The highlight at ITME will be the Berkol multigrinder. The entire range of top rollers and long cots used in a spinning mill can be processed on a single machine. Any execution of centre guided top roller is ground fully automatically on the Berkol multigrinder. With this system, one can achieve a grinding capacity of up to 150 top rollers per hour, while leaving the Berkol multigrinder unattended for as long as 30 minutes. In addition to the automatic grinding of top rollers, with the Berkol multigrinder, one can also benefit from the semi-automatic grinding of long cots with up to 490 millimetres axis length.

Bräcker will also unveil Berkol 63, a new cot dedicated to spinning compact yarns. It enables constantly outstanding yarn values throughout entire lifetime. Excellent fibre guidance is given due to softness of compound without showing lapping tendencies. Besides the introduction of the new cot, other types were optimised to offer highest market standards in terms of price/performance ratio.

The company will also present the new Starlet plus traveller with its improved coating shows a better resistance against corrosion. This is of high importance in challenging spinning conditions like high humidity or aggressive fibres. As a result, the service life can be extended by up to 50 per cent. These travellers, which are suited for the entire yarn count range, are especially recommended for spinning viscose, CO/CV blends, PES, and dyed fibres. During the entire service life, the yarn quality values remain constant.

Other products, which Bräcker will present at ITME, will include Titan and RedOrbit spinning rings, as well as Starlet, Pyrit, and Zirkon travellers. (GK)
