Savio to display energy-saving machines at ITMA 2019
Savio is set to display innovative, highly automated, energy-saving, and Industry 4.0 solutions in all textile machines at ITMA 2019 expo, in hall H7, stand A210. The international textile and garment technology exhibition will be held from June 20-26, 2019, in Barcelona. Savio, headquartered in Italy, is a leader in the yarn finishing machine sector.
The company offers winding systems that are ideal for many different needs, supporting customers in the textile challenge and developing new applications to meet their requests. Manmade fibres and elastomeric yarns (single and dual core) have reached a dominant role in fibre demand growth, becoming a very natural part of our life. Savio’s Polar Evolution and EcoPulsarS winding machines can easily process these special and challenging yarns, thanks to special splicing and tension control devices for ensuring perfect joints and perfect package shape, while always monitoring off-standard values, the company said in a media statement.
The requirement for integrated automation in the spinning process is still increasing, because of yarn quality and productivity advantages that such solution offers. Mills request fully automatic link solutions to replace freestanding winders and ring spinning frames (RSF) without doffing devices. This integrated automation drive has led Savio to offer customers new bespoke link solutions, compared to the classic 1-to-1 configuration, to increase this direct feeding flexibility to/fro winder.
The latest solution from Savio is the Multi Link, which connects multiple ring spinning frames to one Savio winder, becoming a tailor-made circuit to link two or three RSFs to one winding machine. A special iPeg tray guarantees the circulation of RSF bobbing to/from winder. This solution optimises space, reduces energy-consumption, and production costs. This automatic bobbin transport shortens servicing paths for the operators and allows an ergonomic material flow. The costs for production, space and energy are reduced, while keeping the quality consistent even with long and multi-connected machines.
Industry 4.0 is the actual trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies. Connectivity, data management, remote machine set-up, and operator real time interactivity: this is the Savio way for smart solutions for textile mills. Nowadays, Savio product development is focused on ‘smart’ components that must transmit data online. The new possibilities offered by the connection of the machines translates into the different levels of Savio Industrial IoT, with the possibility of progressive sophistication (basic, business, or executive). Three different levels of Savio Industrial IoT: different option levels, each corresponding to a different dose of Industry 4.0 applied to Savio textile winding machinery, from simple connectivity and machinery data downloading, to remote machine setup, to operator real-time interactivity.
The leap in quality of textile machinery is evident in the new control systems, which allow for example employees to receive alarm signals directly to their wrist by smartwatch. When one of the winding machines present a problem, the anomaly signal is sent to the operator through a smartwatch, Savio Smart Bracelet, able to communicate also the type of intervention required, thus minimising the break downtimes of machine.
Services are even going mobile. Another direction of technological development concerns maintenance, with numerous systems already connected in real time with the assistance network, to minimise intervention times, also through remote actions via software without having to send technicians on site. Savio Winder 4.0 is also meant as communication between machine operator and service specialist in case of need. (GK)
