Best Choice For Intelligent Process Automation — Rieter’s K 47 Linked To Autoconer X6

The Indian yarn manufacturing company Sri Bhagirath started production with 17 brand-new Rieter compact-spinning machines K 47 which are directly linked to Rieter winding machines Autoconer X6. This enables the company to meet the increasing customer demand for high-quality compact yarns and to benefit from a high degree of automation.

Compact yarns are characterized by high tenacity, even yarn structure, low hairiness and high yarn density. These characteristics are ideal for high downstream efficiency. So, when Sri Bhagirath started planning to modernize its mill, it was clear that the company would once again opt for compact spinning. The K 47 combined with the Autoconer X6 was the best choice for the company.

Naveen Rander, Director of Sri Bhagirath Textiles, says: “The high-level automation with integrated monitoring systems guarantees both: independence from operators and highest quality of our compact yarns.” He also emphasizes the benefit of obtaining all machines from Rieter: “The fast machine installation, excellent technological support and customized service gives us performance advantages.”

High-quality compact yarns with energy-saving production
The K 47, equipped with the unique sieve drum compacting system, energy-efficient technology components and the one-duct system for suction, produces high-quality compact yarns with significantly less energy for compacting in comparison to other solutions in the market. Monitoring systems, such as the air guide element Detect and the integrated Individual Spindle Monitoring system ISM basic, check the running properties of each spinning position. This ensures the highest level of yarn quality, machine efficiency while diminishing operator workload. Thanks to the semi electronic drafting system, the operator effort and time for parameter setting and machine adaption is reduced to a minimum.

Sri Bhagirath Textiles meets highest quality demands with the Rieter compact spinning machine K 47.

Intelligent winding technology for high splice and package quality
The latest generation of the winding machines Autoconer X6 is a significant step towards intelligent and reliable automation. Sri Bhagirath now is much more independent from the availability and reliability of operators and can process high-quality compact yarns on a very efficiently and energy-saving level. The self-optimizing functions of the material flow (intelligent cops sharing), the high cycle rates of the unique optic tube inspector and the efficient upper yarn gripping supported by the unique Smartjet are important advantages for a nearly autonomous operation of the machines. Not forgetting the integrated online-quality monitoring system SPID: It guides the operator to an off-standard spinning position on the spinning machine to make corrections after the winding unit has detected faulty cops. Thanks to this intelligent technology, operators can concentrate on the monitoring functions.

Benchmark in splice quality
With the open prism technology, Sri Bhagirath can cover the complete yarn count range with only one prism (OZ1) with hardly any splice parameter variations while achieving excellent splice quality for its compact yarns. The splice quality with an average splice strength of more than 95% fulfills the company’s high-quality requirements and ensures high downstream efficiency.

With the investment in Rieter’s K 47 and Autoconer X6, Sri Bhagirath can meet its expectations in terms of yarn quality while the high degree of automation makes the mill less dependent on manual labour.
