Switzerland-based inventor of electronic yarn traverse system SSM (Schärer Schweiter Mettler) will be exhibiting at the forthcoming Techtextil exhibition for technical textiles and nonwovens, Germany, May 9 to 12, 2017.
The Schärer, Schweiter and Mettler companies merged in 1989 to become SSM. SSM is an established leader in air texturing. The company can also offer a complete portfolio for processed yarns. The unique characteristics of tailormade high performance yarns helps such yarns to substitute other classical materials in a large range of applications, thereby continually increasing the use of technical textiles and consequently their consumption. Despite this overall positive scenario, production lot sizes can vary greatly, from large ones for standard yarns to small ones for specialties. Managing such variances poses a challenge for any producer.
The SSM DURO-TW precision winder for technical yarns offers a new level of flexibility and winding quality in one machine. The assembly winder DURO-TD allows the plying of multiple ends or yarns. Optional intermingling guarantees loop-free twists as well as optimal unwinding during twisting. The ability to run closed precision winding enables higher package densities, thereby increasing the knot-free length. SSM also offers the complete range of sewing thread finishing machines.
