Compact-Spinning Machine K 48

Fully compacted yarns produced with high flexibility
  1. Unique Compacting System
  2. Maximum Production Flexibility
  3. High Level of Machine Efficiency

Product details

The compact-spinning machine K 48 produces compact, standard, and special yarns at highest performance. The fully electronic drafting system FLEXIdraft provides extraordinary flexibility to the machine. FLEXIdraft allows easy adjustments of yarn count, twist, and twist direction on the operating unit. 

The total machine uses up to 25% less energy in comparison to other compact-spinning machines. 

The individual spindle monitoring system ISM premium checks the running properties of each spinning position and enables efficient machine supervision. This ensures a high machine efficiency and can save about 5% of the personnel costs.
 

Economy

The K 48 saves up to 80% of the compacting energy as compared to the compacting energy needed by competitors' solutions. This is achieved thanks to the unique compacting system and the energy-efficient components.

The integrated individual spindle monitoring system ISM premium checks the running properties of each spinning position. The system ensures a high machine efficiency and can save about 5% of the personnel costs.

The maintenance costs for the machine are low as the system does not include a compacting apron. It is equipped with technology components that have long service lives.

Quality

The air guide element Detect ensures precise air guiding and monitors the compacting process at each spinning position. This ensures a consistently high yarn quality. 

The proven unique SERVOgrip system makes yarn underwinding for doffing preparation redundant. This reduces fiber fly and ensures high yarn quality.
 

Flexibility

Yarn count, twist and twist direction are easy to adjust on the operating unit. The fully electronic drafting system FLEXIdraft maximizes the production time and allows extraordinary flexibility. 

For all machine lengths, the K 48 can be equipped with devices for slub (VARIOspin), core and twin yarn production. 

A highly abrasion-resistant sieve drum coating increases the application range of the K 48. Different raw materials, blends, and yarn counts can be spun with the shortest time for a machine changeover.
