A.T.E. launches automation division for textile mills
A.T.E., an engineering group offering solutions in manufacturing, industrial sales, distribution, and services, has launched an automation division under its TEG (Textile Engineering Group) business unit. The division has been launched as a direct response to customer’s requests that A.T.E. help them improve the performance of their installed machines.

Textile mills continuously seek to automate their processes and upgrade their machine and process controls so as to produce with better quality and lower costs. In some cases, they accomplish their goals through the purchase of new equipment, or through machinery overhauls with new parts. In other cases, the path to improvement requires a tailor-made approach – as the mills have machines that are in generally good mechanical condition, but need new kinds of control, or add-on systems for automation. Such customised projects in textile mills require to be executed by reliable partners with in-depth textile knowledge.

A.T.E., endowed with deep domain knowledge in textile engineering and textile processes, has built-up a team of experts to undertake automation and upgrade projects. Machines are upgraded using modern retrofits and the latest software, resulting in significant improvement in the performance of these machines, both in terms of productivity and quality, the company said in a media statement.

A.T.E. can undertake machine upgrade/automation of textile machines like weaving preparatory like sizing and warping machines; processing like Stenter/merceriser/dyeing ranges/pad dry/pad steam; denim processing lines, and POY/FDY winders, extruders, PSF lines, bale press, chip conveying, and drying for synthetics.

Apart from custom machine upgrade/automation, the automation division has also in its portfolio some productised solutions, such as a fancy yarn system, Fancy Spin, to add value to yarn, which would help mills realise higher value for their yarn. Another such productised system is the pre-reduced indigo dosing systems for denim manufacturing (bulk as well as portable). These dosing systems help in maintaining consistent quality without any shade variation along millions of meters of denim produced and also help in reducing the load on the wastewater treatment plant.

“We have a team of experts with long experience in executing such projects smoothly. Customers can count on us for excellent support at all times of the project execution, and also post execution,” Vikas Banduke, vice president – automation, who is responsible for this new business at A.T.E. said.
