Gama Recycle happy with Truetzschler machines

Truetzschler textile machines have proven to be a hit in giving better quality and production process at Gama Recycle. The company is one of the largest integrated regenerated yarn manufacturers in Turkey, spinning used textiles into regenerated yarns. The company manufactures around 100 tons of yarn and around 50 tons of polyester fibres on a daily basis.

Applications of the yarns produced in three spinning mills of the company range from upholstery, home textiles, and socks to cleaning cloths and packaging. The range also includes special yarns with flame-retardant or antibacterial finish and heavy-metal-free bleached yarns for the food industry. All three plants are equipped with Truetzschler machines that include automatic bale openers Blendomat and various generations of cards with integrated draw frames (IDF2), that contribute to the particularly good quality of yarn, according to a press release by Truetzschler.

Speaking about the benefits of Truetzschler machines, Zafer Kaplan, the owner of Gama Recycle said on Truetzschler blog, “In our plant, we have TC 03, TC 07, TC 11, TC 15, TC 19i, so to say: all types of Truetzschler cards. And we are very satisfied with the quality and the capability of the whole Truetzschler equipment. I would say they are the key machines in the regenerated spinning process.”

Discussing the typical raw materials used in the company Kaplan said, “The bandwidth of the raw materials that we process ranges from textile production waste like rags, snippets or other textile waste to post-consumer material. Millions of tons of old textiles are collected every year, but qualities vary greatly. We mostly buy the rags and snippets in Turkey. PET bottles are mostly imported from all over the world. The quality of the snippets is indeed getting worse and worse in the last years in Turkey. We clearly note more contamination in the production process. The threads of the fancy items in clothing production are of a poor basic quality, unfortunately.”

Speaking about the main challenges of the textile recycling process Kaplan said, “It’s all about good people and the best machinery. We attach great importance to that constantly growing experience of our team, whether management or operator. Also the capability, technology and quality of the production machines are very significant. We have a well-trained laboratory team in our company which guides the operators with constantly acquired knowledge and which controls the whole production process.”
