Compact-Spinning Machine K 48

Fully Compacted Yarns Produced with High Performance
  1. Unique Compacting System
  2. Maximum Production Flexibility
  3. High Level of Machine Efficiency

Product details

The compact-spinning machine K 48 produces fully compacted standard and special yarns with highest performance. It is supplied with a device for producing slub yarns as standard.

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

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

Economy

The K 48 only requires around 20% of the compacting energy needed by other comparable 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 individual spinning position. The system ensures a high machine efficiency and can safe about 5% personnel costs.

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

Parameters such as yarn count, twist and twist direction can be easily changed on the operating unit thanks to an electronic drafting system drive. This maximizes production time.

With the WILDload system, tubes are taken from the trolley to the tube loader ROBOload via a loading device which sorts the tubes. This reduces the work involved.

Quality

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

The proven SERVOgrip system developed by Rieter prevents thread underwinding when doffing. This reduces fiber fly and ensures high yarn quality.

Flexibility

The K 48 is very flexible. The machine is supplied with a device for producing slub yarns (VARIOspin) as standard. Systems for producing core yarns and ply yarns are also available on request.

An improved coating on the sieve drum enables various raw materials to be spun. This expands the application range of the K 48.
