In ring spinning, one of the highlights will be the EliTe Compact Set, a compact spinning system, which can be installed on nearly all types of ring spinning machines. The system includes various innovations resulting in better yarn quality and increased productivity. An example is the Eli Tube Concept: as the fibre path within the drafting system is off-centred and the slot inclination is varied from left to right depending on the machine side, the use of top roller cots and aprons can be doubled. The main goal of this and the other innovations is increasing lifetime of the components and reducing maintenance costs. The EliTe Compact Set can be equipped with the optional Eli Twist enabling the production of compact two-ply yarn on ring spinning machines. Eli Twist is highly suitable to spin two-ply core yarns.
Suessen will also present various new Premium Parts for rotor spinning machines. The new Twist Trap Navel is a modified navel with a patented twist-retaining element. The navel, which is applicable to all types of Spin Boxes, provides an additional false twist, which results in better spinning stability. The production increases by 10 per cent to 15 per cent due to the possible twist reduction. Another new Premium Part is the PS7 Twin Disc. There is substantially less flexing work between rotor shaft and disc, as the width of the disc is reduced from 10 mm to 7 mm. Due to the lower energy consumption – up to 11 W per spinning unit are possible depending on the rotor speed – the pay-back period of this innovative component is very short.
