The Saurer Group, Switzerland’s leading globally operating technology group focusing on machinery and components for yarn processing, has launched the new Autoconer X6 winding machine with latest features. The new machine comes with the revolutionary Bobbin Cloud material flow system based on radio frequency identification (RFID) technology.

The E3-certified machine is distinguished by even lower resource consumption and increased production. With its outstanding winding technology, the Autoconer is and remains the globally recognised benchmark for quality yarn and package production.

Characteristic features of the Bobbin Cloud include the decentralised processing aggregates and the material flow designed in a round loop. Like during a pit stop in Formula 1, the bobbins and tubes automatically move to the processing aggregates positioned along the guideways. In order to increase cycle speed and capacity, several bobbin preparation stations, which operate in parallel, can be installed. The winding units are supplied reliably with prepared bobbins directly from the Bobbin Cloud. The entire circuit functions as a material storage area.

The new optical tube inspector with infrared sensor is another important feature necessary for increased process reliability. Through noncontact scanning, it reliably detects single yarns and all yarn structures even at high cycle rates.

Bobbin Cloud and RFID technology form the basis for a future-orientated direct link between Autoconer and ring spinning machine. A key feature is the integrated online quality monitoring system SPID. This means every spinning mill now has the opportunity to establish its quality level at the highest standard. Optimum machine networking and more intensive process automation are becoming the new standard.

The Autoconer X6 offers attractive energy consumption reductions of up to 20 per cent, which is mainly due to its high energy efficiency. All components and functions have been optimised in terms of this. These measures include improved aerodynamics in the airflow, state-of-the-art drives with high efficiency levels and the unique Power on Demand
vacuum control.

Energy monitoring, which continuously monitors compressed air and energy consumption online, helps the operating personnel to optimise winding processes in an energy-efficient manner and thus reduce costs.

The Autoconer X6 conserves the most valuable resource, the yarn, through perfectly coordinated winding and cycling processes. The upper yarn sensor, aerodynamically optimised suction nozzle, SmartCycle with intelligent cycling sequence and SmartJet in the doffer work in perfect harmony. The Autoconer X6 has been consistently designed for maximum economy. Extra-long machines with up to 96 winding units increase productivity per square metre. The Bobbin Cloud reliably supplies all winding units along the entire length with material at the highest cycle rates. (GK)
