Kalra, Director (Technical and Sales) at Surat-based Rima Machines (P) Ltd. “Apart from manufacturing two-for-one (TFO) twisting machines for traditional textiles, Rima Machines also produces TFO’s for producing technical textiles like tarpaulins, tyre cords, hoses, fishnets, etc., where heavy denier yarn is used. Most of these machines are customised as per the requirement of the customer and are available in spindle pots ranging from 70 mm to 400 mm, with the capability to run 20 or even 15,000 denier yarn.
