Volkmann will show its energy expertise at Domotex 2013
The Volkmann product line will be providing information on its latest technological developments, which are also setting standards in the energy sector.
The Volkmann product line, located in Krefeld/Germany, belongs to Oerlikon Saurer and is the global market leader of twisting and cabling machines for the production of carpet yarns. Sophisticated know-how, innovative strength and market proximity are the traditional strengths of the Volkmann product line.
Now even more economically efficient – only one work process for carpet cabling and heat setting
With Heat-SET, the integration of heat setting in the classical cabling process, the Volkmann product line sets another milestone in carpet yarn manufacturing. For the first time, it is possible to combine the process steps of cabling, heat setting and winding in a single step. Volkmann Heat-SET now combines both finishing steps in one procedure with only one rewinding process. This has clear economic advantages; it reduces the production time considerably, increases flexibility and also produces a high-quality, classic cabled BCF yarn.
The new e-save carpet cabling technology reduces energy costs by up to 40%
The e-save spindles are used in the new Volkmann carpet cabling machines, they can also be installed in existing equipment as a retrofit package. With the expanded e-save spindle family and an energy-saving potential of up to 40%, the Volkmann product line is setting new standards in the market.
Depending on the yarn count range and supply package diameter, the conditions can be optimised with the e-save spindles. This greatly reduces the consumption of energy and simultaneously decreases the yarn strain. Depending on the quality of yarn, higher spindle speeds can be reached, thus increasing the production.
Become up-to-date in quality and economic efficiency with the retrofit packages
Many of the technological innovations are also available in retrofit packages as ideal additions to existing equipment. Our customer support is happy to be able to offer appealing, economically efficient retrofit solutions for older generations of machines. A range of pioneering technological components have been developed for this purpose. This includes:
- Retractable Hi-Lo-creels improve usability
- Newly developed yarn tensioning systems promote quality and economic efficiency
- E-save spindles provide a better energy balance of up to 40%
Through its excellent ergonomic characteristics, the efficient pneumatic retractable Hi-Lo-creel provides the operator with significantly improved usability. With the newly developed pneumatically central, per machine side adjustable roller yarn tensioner, and the individual yarn tensioners such as the crocodile and hysteresis tensioners for the creel yarn, an increase in economic efficiency and quality can be achieved. The newly developed ball yarn tensioner for the two-for-one twisting machine or the up-twisting of BCF single and plied yarns sets another milestone. The ball yarn tensioner covers the entire yarn tension range. Switching to another capsule, as with the conventional capsule tensioners, is no longer necessary. The tension is easily adjustable in 24 steps and the pneumatic threading is always assured – without additional handling.
With the Volkmann product line and its experienced team staff, our customers always have a strong, innovative and reliable partner at their side, ready to answer any questions concerning twisting.
