Tatham's TS System - driving costs down worldwide…..

Feb '11
Tatham, manufacturer of specialist technology for the textile industry, is offering a variable machinery drive system designed to cut energy consumption by up to 50%. Tatham's TS System is intended to offer the latest drive control technology to help customers achieve significant energy and operational savings.

Contrary to fixed speed motors, which always operate at full speed, variable speed drive systems use drive converters to adapt to their operating requirements. The Tatham designed system only draws the amount of power necessary at that particular point, thereby significantly reducing operating costs.

A variable-speed drive converter also eliminates the current spikes generated during acceleration and torque surges, ensuring less wear on the mechanical system components. This soft starting and stopping reduces stress on the complete drive mechanical transmission line, increasing the machine's operational lifetime.

Specifically designed for the textile industry, the TS variable speed drives are used in carding machines, crosslappers, needlelooms, spinning and twisting frames. The range also includes TS and TSe weight control technology and crosslappers.

Jim Kelly, senior electrical engineer, said: “A TS drive system will directly replace any mechatronic DC drive or standard DC drive, with the latest AC variable speed drives offering the most practical solution both technically and economically. The drives are completely synchronised and do not require feedback devices, allowing finite control of the machine at all speeds.”

A centre of excellence for system design and implementation, Tatham has the capacity to upgrade any carding machine worldwide with drives and weight control. The technology is suitable for most applications and, as all products are designed for a particular function, Tatham can tailor the specification to meet the customer's exact requirements.

Following numerous installations worldwide, the Tatham TS System has become a benchmark for leading edge design and operational performance. Recently the TS drive has been used in a Hergeth Crosslapper in Malaysia, a UK medical textile line, a carbon fibre line in USA and a number of woollen card in the UK. Tatham also has agents in most territories, enabling the manufacturer to easily interact with its international customers.

Tatham has a strong customer base for its TS drives in the US, China, Australia and Malaysia. Overall the company exports 80% of its products to countries including India, South Africa, New Zealand, China and throughout Europe.

Tatham director Tim Porritt believes forming partnerships is key to future success: “Last year we set up a new business with Stewarts of America to provide perforation machinery. We provide engineering skills together with drive technology to deliver enhanced perforation solutions to the worldwide industry.

“Recently we have completed projects in the water and aggregate industries and look forward to developing strong partnerships in these areas.”

Tatham Limited product portfolio also includes medical fibre processing equipment, retrofit engineering for woollen cards (intermediate feed, creel, condensers), textile engineering, spares and service.
