Truetzschler’s TC 19i card a hit in textile markets
April 27, 2020 - Germany
The intelligent Truetzschler card TC 19i
has been proved a hit in customer applications in key textile markets. TC 19i achieved up to 40 per cent less yarn imperfections and new potentials for productivity increase for customers. At the same time, TC 19i demonstrated significant raw material savings of up to 2 per cent at a steady yarn quality level.
Badsha Textiles is a leading textile conglomerate and producer of a range of high-quality carded, ring and open-end yarns in state-of-the-art spinning mills. The company trusted Truetzschler
to deliver on its promises regarding the performance of TC 19i – and has not regretted its decision yet. In a production of cotton ring yarn, for example, the TC 19i achieved a reduction of yarn imperfections of minus 35 per cent at a production of 90 kg/h, according to a Truetzschler press release.
“The gap between cylinder and flats is crucial to ensure quality. In conventional machines, the minimum gap which we could get was 3 thou (thousandth of an inch). The TC 19i makes it possible to get 1 thou. Keeping such narrow carding gaps, which are thinner than a piece of paper, is decisive to achieve maximum quality and productivity, especially in processing cotton. Moreover, this process has become fully automatic. Before using TC 19i, skilled technicians had to optimize the gap after dismantling the machine. But now it is done using software efficiently and precisely. The advantage of quality adjustment in a running carding machine was quite unimaginable before. With TC 19i it can be done effortlessly,” MD Moshiur Rahman, general manager at Badsha Textiles said.
In other key textile markets, such as Turkey, Uzbekistan, and Mexico, the TC 19i demonstrated similar significant advantages in terms of quality, productivity, raw material savings and handling and energy efficiency. It showed up to 40 per cent less yarn imperfections in carded ring yarn, and even more than 50 per cent less yarn imperfections in combed ring yarn and rotor yarn manufacture – and this at high production levels between 75kg/h and 100 kg/h.
“We observe that our customers create more value from their raw material with the TC 19i, and are able to increase productivity and quality flexibility. Moreover, the results are independent of technician, temperature, wire condition, or production rate. Only a few clicks on the display are necessary, and the intelligent card sets and keeps the ideal carding gap automatically and permanently,” Markus Wurster, global sales director at Truetzschler said.
“At the heart of the intelligent card is the T-GO gap optimiser. In combination with our T-CON sensor system it enables our card to know and adapt the real carding gap at all times during operation and under changing production conditions. No competitor card can achieve this. The TC 19i is the first intelligent card and an economic and ecologic solution for the demands of state-of-the-art spinning preparation,” Armin Leder, director of Truetzschler’s global R&D department said.
