Saurer's Path-breaking Innovations @ ITMA
The Textile magazine|October 2019
Saurer Group is a leading globally operating technology group focusing on machinery and components for yarn processing. As a company with a long tradition, Saurer has always been a leader in innovation. Today, Saurer comprises the two segments Saurer Spinning Solutions and Saurer Technologies.

Saurer Spinning Solutions offers high quality, technologically advanced and customer-specific automation solutions for processing staple fibre from bale to yarn. Saurer Technologies specialises in twisting and embroidery as well as engineered and polymer solutions. With annual sales revenues of EUR 1.1 billion, 4,300 employees, and locations in Switzerland, Germany, Turkey, Brazil, Mexico, the US, China, India and Singapore, the strongly growing group is well positioned to serve the world’s textile industry centres.

For Saurer Group, ITMA 2019 was a platform for launch of path breaking innovations and future technologies in yarn manufacturing. Saurer also celebrated some important milestones during the show.

One of the most important launch at ITMA was the new mill management system ‘Senses’, which is a new innovative control and analysis tool. Senses allows to collect and analyse the production, quality and machine data. The advantage is total transparency and the optimization of production processes. The result is enhanced efficiency and increased profitability.

Autoairo, the game changer

Autoairo, the new game changer in air spinning, was the biggest attraction at the Saurer booth. The Autoairo air-spinning machine defines new benchmarks in productivity, efficiency and especially automation in the lucrative air-spinning market. The interest from visitors and the spinning industry in general has been overwhelming.

The Autoairo has autonomous spinning positions with individual drives, integrated intelligence and a digital piecing unit. Twenty-four piecing operations can be carried out simultaneously with SynchroPiecing 24. Compared to other machines on the market, the piecing capacity of the Autoairo is roughly twice as high. The Autoairo requires 40% less space than air-spinning machines with a one-sided design. This means that spinning mills’ floor area can be smaller, which reduces construction and air conditioning costs. In this way, the return on investment is accelerated. With MultiLot, up to four lots can be spun on the Autoairo at the same time. In addition, seamless lot changes during ongoing production are possible. With PilotSpin, test packages can be manufactured while the other spinning positions simply continue with normal production. LED strips at each spinning position signal, among other things, that cans need to be replaced soon. This ensures rapid intervention by personnel without the need for cumbersome tours of inspection.
