ITMA Asia in Shanghai will take place just before the “first birthday” of the new Saurer Group. This is the first time for the Group to gather all business units under the Saurer umbrella on one booth. On roughly 800 m2 in hall W02 / booth F01 Saurer will display novelties in all business Units.

They will show a new Zinser ring spinning frame and a new generation Schlafhorst BD rotor spinning machine, new features on our Schlafhorst winding and Saurer embroidery machines, a new product from the Jintan preparation side and as always, the components brands will display several new innovations. As a part of the Saurer philosophy of innovation and sustainability, Saurer has created a new label: E3 - the triple added value that will also be launched on ITMA Asia in Shanghai. 
The new Saurer Group is one of the world’s largest textile machinery and component manufacturers, with sales around 1 billion Swiss francs and 3‘800 employees. The group has nine locations in Germany, two in Switzerland and six in Asia, close to the main textile markets of the world. In the last 9 months since the separation from Oerlikon Group the new Saurer Group has been reorganizing itself and decentralized the organization. Result is only a small Corporate overhead and strong Business Units, enabling important decisions to be made close to the customer and implement fast. Furthermore, Saurer has launched a comprehensive program to increase Customer satisfaction, which already is bearing the first fruits. All in all Saurer is focusing on what is most important in the business: the customers. This is also clearly visible in the number of new machines, features and components Saurer is bringing to ITMA Asia in June.

Ground breaking innovations in productivity, product lifetime and service are borne out of the Group’s passion for its products. With constant focus on customers’ needs Saurer Group strives for excellence in all areas. As part of the philosophy of innovation and sustainability Saurer Group is proud to launch the new E3 label for Energy, Economics and Ergonomics and the ITMA Asia in Shanghai in June.

Allma and Volkmann will be presenting innovative products and solutions for the sectors of staple fibre yarns, carpet yarns, tyre yarn, technical and glass filament yarns.

E³ – triple added value

E³ stands for Saurer’s product philosophy with the concept of triple added value: energy, economics and ergonomics. Energy efficiency is an absolute must for every company. The twisting and cabling machines from Allma and Volkmann speak for themselves with their low energy consumption and efficient use of resources. Allma and Volkmann machines excel with their high cost-effectiveness, which is achieved through faster production speeds, a reduction in the outlay for investment and air conditioning and low operating and maintenance expenditure.

Setting benchmarks – CompactTwister with E³ technology

In the CompactTwister, the Company presents their high-performance twisting machine for staple fibre yarns with E3 technology, which impresses with its triple added value through the factors of energy, economics and ergonomics. It is possible to achieve savings in energy of up to 40% thanks to the eco drive concept and the eco spindle technology with adjusted spindle combinations. Productivity of the CompactTwister is 30% higher thanks to faster delivery speeds of up to 120 m/min. Operating costs are reduced on account of lower expenses for energy, floor space and maintenance. The ergonomic benefits of the CompactTwister are better operating convenience due to improved winding geometry, central adjustments and handling aids as well as a reduction of about 50% in noise emission. The CompactTwister covers all number ranges and, due to high yarn and bobbin quality, provides optimum conditions for the utmost in added value, both today and tomorrow.

CableCorder CC4 – Twist & Save with E³ technology

With its pioneering technology, the CableCorder CC4 cabling twister provides energy savings of up to 50% in the tyre cord cabling process. As energy costs constitute by far the greatest block of expenses in the overall cabling process, these savings represent a revolutionary cut in production costs for producers of tyre cord. Cutting energy consumption also reduces the heat load in the production facilities, which in turn leads to a reduction in the costs for air conditioning. Greater cost effectiveness is further improved by 50% less thread breakage, better quality and high machine efficiency. The added value for machine operators comes from a decrease in noise emission in the workshop and shorter operating times due to simple handling of the machine.

Embroidery – Textile creations for the future.

Epoca 6 pro – the successful embroidery machine

Epoca 6pro opens new dimensions with regard to adjustability and performance. A machine which is custom tailored for an era where orders are getting smaller and smaller but the demands and requirements are growing continuously. In addition, the orders need to be produced with fewer personnel and in a considerably shorter time. With the Epoca 6 pro, we have a product which fulfils those requirements.
The new concepts for drives, configuration and thread-cut guarantee maximum productivity and absolute reliability. The average production speed for the Epoca 6 pro is up to 30% higher, while retaining absolute reliability and top quality for embroidery. The unique options for adjusting the machine set the benchmarks in shuttle embroidery. The innovative, rapid thread-cut, which is fitted with the new individual actuation and secure thread trap system, results in minimum yarn waste. This means that the most complex patterns can be produced economically with extremely different yarns.

SoutacheHead – the new Saurer soutache system with application heads

You can embroider one-of-a-kind patterns using the innovative soutache head and keep the areas being embroidered conveniently in view while maintaining full flexibility. The motor-driven application heads mean that you can achieve production speeds of up to 500 rpm It is easy for users to position and gain access to the heads, with the results that downtimes during production and retooling are drastically reduced. The multifunctional soutache wheel allows the most diverse materials to be processed: from the finest soutache cord, a huge variety of braid widths, right through to technical yarns.

Saurer Jintan

At ITMA ASIA + CITME 2014, Saurer Pre-Spinning business unit Saurer Jintan will be presenting for the first time the new JSC326 carding machine with up to 50% productivity increase.
Carding area has been increased with 60% comparing to the traditional machine thanks to a wider and raised cylinder. This results in an increase of the output by 50% under the same carding conditions. A new type of length and short auto-levelling (auto-adapting adjusting) will ensure constant sliver output with easy weight adjustment. The independent frequency converting transmission has now a removable cover plate, which allows easy speed setting and gives technological flexibility. Consequent feeding; carding length can be adapted to different fibre lengths and causes less damage to fibre.
The length of the licker-in waste collecting area outside the machine can now be easily adjusted. Synchronous belt with removable cover plate made out of high accuracy extrusion aluminium alloy, is easy to disassemble. Ergonomics has also been improved with easy operation icon interface.
