Trtzschler Card TC 1 1
THE NEW SUCCESS FORMULA FOR CARDING
INTERACTION OF EFFICIEN CY, QUALITY AND PRODUCTIVITY
The cost pressure in the textile industry grows from year to year. This is also due to the fact that the spinning mills cannot pass on the climbing cotton prices 1:1. At the same time, the quality requirements of the consumers increase. Hence, a future-oriented card must not only set record highs in terms of efciency and productivity, but also in terms of quality. Of key importance is also the handling of valuable raw material. The TC 11 offers optimal material utilisation.

APPROX. 40% ADDITIONAL PRODUCTIVITY AT HIGHEST QUALITY LEVEL


Trtzschler identied the challenges at an early stage and, in response, developed the new card generation TC 11. It meets even highest expectations thanks to characteristics that are unique in high-production carding:  Approx. 40% more production at same compact space  Highest quality due to longest carding section on the market  Lowest operating costs  Lowest waste quantities

FLEXIBILITY TO ENSURE EVEN MORE EFFICIENCY


The TC 11 supports the competitiveness of your spinning mill not only by its excellent productivity and quality, but also by the lowest operating costs. It also features a exibility that allows quick and frequent lot changes without any problems. Even important, quality-relevant settings such as of the ats, carding segments or mote knife, are completed within minutes. Immediately after restart of the machine, T-Con indicates whether and where there is still a potential for optimisation.

This result appeals to sober analysts and the quality conscious: Trtzschler efciency = circumference x width of card cylinder

THE PERFECT SPACE FOR QUALITY AND ECONOMIC EFFICIENCY
LONGER CARDING SECTION = MORE QUALITY!
A simple formula states: The greater the distance covered by the bres on the cylinder, the better the carding quality. With a carding section of more than 2.8 metres, only Trtzschler cards offer optimal quality. It is precisely this carding section that in addition to the ideal number of ats also ensures a sufcient number of carding segments and cleaning units.

MORE CARDING WIDTH = MORE PRODUCTIVITY?


There is a formula for this as well: More width while maintaining roll geometries means generally more productivity. However, the accuracy required in the setting limits the desire for more width. Starting at a certain width, the elements surrounding the cylinder would have to be so massive that the resulting costs would be in no economic relation to productivity.

BALANCE OF QUALITY AND PRODUCTIVITY


We have included everything in the TC11 that Trtzschler stands for: More than 120 years of experience, a team of rst-class engineers, as well as countless analyses, simulations and eld tests. The end result was clear: A working width of 1.28 m represents the perfect balance be tween productivity and efciency. Any occurring forces can be optimally handled up to this width by an intelligent design.

You are searching for optimal efciency?


THE ANSWER IS TC11
MORE ECONOMICAL THAN ALL ITS PREDECESSORS
The technical qualities of the new TC11 are impressive. However, it shows its strengths also in terms of efciency. Compared to its predecessors which were already very good in this regard it offers three tangible advantages:  Best performance/price ratio  Lowest operating costs  approx. 40% more production at same space requirement.

LOWER INVESTMENT COSTS*


Compared to the predecessor series TC 7, the investment costs for carding are considerably lower for the TC11. Simply less cards are required. In addition, this allows a smaller building size and smaller lter.

UP TO 25% LESS OPERATING COSTS*


In the end, the life-cycle-costs determine whether an investment was successful from an economic point of view. In case of the TC11, you do not have to wait very long for a RETURN OF INVESTMENT. Compared to TC 7, your cost advantages in the areas of energy, lter and maintenance result in savings of up to 25%. This equals roughly 152,000 US$ per year.

* approx. 14 cards, 140 kg/h 8,000 operating hours per year. The raw material use is approx. 15,680 t, purchased at a cotton price of 94 USct./lbs.

Perfection can be measured


WITH T-CON
PRODUCTIVITY CANNOT BE INCREASED THROUGH ESTIMATED VALUES
Efcient production requires utilisation of the cards full potential at all times. The prerequisite for this are optimal settings of the work elements. However, this process is frequently carried out when the card is in cold condition and is usually based on empirical values. Changes in ambient temperatures or changes caused by high production quantities are not considered.

THE PERFECT SOLUTION FOR IMPERFECTIONS


The patented Trtzschler T-Con lowers the number of imperfections by up to 10%. For this purpose, the actual distances between cylinder, ats and xed carding elements are determined. The results appear on the card display and indicate which settings can be improved. There is no easier way to accomplish perfect card settings and thus optimal productivity.

NO ROOM FOR SAFETY LAPSES


With T-Con, across-the-board settings of safety reserves are a thing of the past. T-Con registers even the slightest contact with clothings and shuts down the card long before a damage can occur. This makes it possible to bring productions closer to an ideal line without taking a risk.

The optimisation options are clearly shown on the screen. The type of bre and production level are taken into account.

Considerably lower operating costs with T-Con Experiences with T-Con show that 10% more production and 10% less IPI in the yarn are possible, which in case of our spinning mill example equals annual operating costs savings of approx. 280,000 US$.

MAGNOTOP
THIS IS HOW SIMPLE OPTIMAL FLAT TOPS CAN BE
SECURE ECONOMIC ADVANTAGES DURING EACH CLOTHING CHANGE
Maintaining consistent high quality requires regular change of at tops. For this purpose, Trtzschler has developed the patented MAGNOTOP system together with Trtzschler Card Clothing. Its clothing strips, which are easy and quick to replace, offer unbeatable economic advantages: Depending on labour costs, savings of 300 1100 US$ per card re-clothing can be realised. Investments in a ats workshop (usually 170210,000 US$) are completely eliminated.

UNNECESSARY FEATURES HIGHER ACCURACY WITHTRANSLATE INTO SAVINGS OUT INITIAL GRINDING
The improved efciency achieved by the easy replacement of the clothing strips without ats workshop results in an immediate reduction of operating costs. Use of the MAGNOTOP system also eliminates the otherwise unavoidable extra costs:  No spare at sets required  No service costs for re-clothing  No transport costs With MAGNOTOP, the clothing strips t perfect from the start. This is due to the reduced toler ances; the clothing strips are attached to the at bar via superstrong neodymium magnets. The usual levelling that compensates deformations caused by assembly can be eliminated. This prolongs the service life by one grinding cycle.

Card TC 11

The perfect points of new at tops are preserved because levelling after replacement of at tops is not necessary.

The clothing strips can be easily replaced without any tools.

14

Card TC 11

Higher efciency
DUE TO FEWER PROCESS STEPS
FEWER STEPS TO REACH THE GOAL
The "best" process steps are those that do not exist in the rst place. Thus, problems can be avoided, errors ruled out and money saved. A reduction of draw frames is of particular interest in the spinning mill. And this is precisely what the Integrated Draw Frame IDF 2 achieves by direct coupling to the Trtzschler Card TC 11 in the rotor spinning mill. Efciency is increased by a multiple. Because the Trtzschler card/draw frame couplings combine all the advantages of the Card TC 11 with a proven and reliable draw frame technology, the quality is improved as well.

ALSO SHORT SPINNING PROCESS


There is no shorter spinning process than feeding the card sliver directly to the OE rotor spinning machine. This requirement is also perfectly met by the Integrated Draw Frame IDF 2.

Card TC 11

15

Open leveller draw frame unit

For rotor spinning, a sliver with a lower level of parallelisation is of advantage; for this reason, the drafts should be kept small. The 1 zone drafting system of the IDF 2 provides an excellent sliver evenness and a signicantly improved yarn evenness. The better quality is evident in the uniform fabric appearance.

SENSOFEED+ and DIRECTFEED: The specialists for optimal feeding


More than 20,000 cards delivered with DIRECTFEED The Tuft Feeder DIRECTFEED is an integral part of the Card TC 11. The delivery roll of tuft feeding is identical to the cards feed roll. Hence, faulty drafts due to wrong or suboptimal settings have no chance to develop. DIRECTFEED utilises the successful Trtzschler double trunk principle: The upper trunk has a signicantly larger volume for a 60180% higher material reserve, whereas the special geometry of the lower trunk and the extended material y form the foundation for excellent sliver CV values. The air outlet comb with direct and permanent suction is positioned right in front of the feed roll. It is only here, just a few centimetres in front of the nip line of the feed roll, that the actual web is formed.

The feeding of material slubs leads to a minimal deformation at this point of the tray edge. In the simulation the effective forces are highlighted in colour.

SENSOFEED+ The exible Integral Feed Tray SENSOFEED+ ensures controlled web feeding to the W EBFEED Unit. Its feed table compacts the tuft web and guides it to a knife-shaped feed tray tip. The material at this top allows a partial elastic deformation that occurs when material slubs are fed. This deformation is only a few hundredth of a millimetre and has hardly any inuence on the overall deection of the feed tray. As additional function, the Integral Feed Plate SENSOFEED+ can also include feed monitoring for the card.

WEBFEED: The plus for gentle but efcient opening


The WEBFEED system consists of one large or three opening rolls connected in series. The tufts are opened in a gentler way and to a higher degree than is the case with conventional lickerins. This results in an even and ne web that increases the carding efciency at the actual main working points (between cylinder and ats/ carding segments) during the transfer to the main cylinder. 3 rolls rst roll: Needles 3 rolls rst roll: Metallic wires 1 roll: Needles Fibre pre-opening is of decisive importance for the carding process. Therefore it makes sense here to precisely adapt to the respective application. In the process, the different versions are exible and easy to replace:

e.g. cotton at high production rates e.g. cotton/man-made bre blend yarns e.g. man-made bres + ELS cotton

For a ten-fold durability compared to metallic wires, the needles are made of special steel.

PMS: Adjustment in no time at all


The main cleaning zone of the TC 11 lies in the area of the rst roll of the WEBFEED system. Here, an optimal waste composition requires an accurate mote knife setting. This is exactly what the successful Precision Knife Setting System PMS provides. The knife, which circles around the centre of the needle roll, is innitely adjustable within seconds. Thus, the distance of the knife point to the needles is exactly the same in every position.

There is no need to stop the card, since the setting lever is freely accessible on the left machine side. A glance into the transparent suction ducts immediately shows the success of the readjustment.
With this lever the mote knife is adjusted.

PMS with motor: Perfect setting within seconds


With this system, a small servo motor is the key to increased user-friendliness and precision: The knife can be circularly adjusted around the centre of the rst WEBFEED roll via touch screen and that even while the machine is running. All values can be stored according to lot. For extremely short transitions from one material to the next, the setting values of the PFS and of the PMS system, as well as the speeds of the cylinder roll and WEBFEED roll, can be stored according to lot in the memory of the control.
This small servomotor adjusts the knife circularly around the centre of the rst roll of the WEBFEED.

3.7 m2: The largest active carding area in the market ensures maximum productivity

1.28 m

The new width of the Trtzschler cards of 1.28 m is the result of an intensive development process. Initial analyses concerning an optimal cylinder width revealed the following: A larger width would make the construction so massive that it would no longer be economically feasible. A smaller width wastes productivity. Based on this concept, production parameters of the predecessor model TC 7 were evaluated with the help of T-Con sensors (see page 38), and the new

design was developed. This also includes new statics and the application of new materials. The level of precision used during manufacturing contributes to the growth in productivity. During countless tests the technical concept was tried out, rened and, last but not least, tested as prototype in customer facilities. The results fully met our expectations.

2.8 m: The longest carding section on the market ensures perfect quality
Pre-carding Flat Post-carding

The Trtzschler Card TC 11 features the longest carding section on the market. Carding quality is ensured by optimal distribution over the three carding areas. In this regard, the cylinder area is of particular importance. The main focus is on the revolving at: With an optimal number of at bars, it is responsible for cleaning as well as extracting neps and short bres. To ensure its optimal function, the bre web must be prepared accordingly.

This job is assigned to the pre-carding area with its cleaning and carding elements. The higher the pre-opening, the more intense the carding, which in turn results in increased production. The large post-carding area takes care of the rest, thus ensuring even cleaner sliver and higher bre parallelism.

MAGNOTOP at tops: Magnetic attraction of quality

In the past, each one of the 84 at bars had to be manually handled six times during the replacement of at tops. With MAGNOTOP this is only necessary once which reduces the approximately 14 hours spent by personnel to less than 2 hours.

Up to now, replacement of at tops required much time and expenditure. Now MAGNOTOP provides increased speed and cost efciency. The system uses so-called neodymium magnets, which are considered to be the strongest permanent magnets ever: One neodymium magnet, smaller than a cigarette pack, can easily hold or lift a weight of 100 kg. Another decisive advantage: The expensive alloy made of iron, neodymium and boron, retains its magnetic force for many decades.

Quick change of at tops, entirely without tools The at bars of the innovate MAGNOTOP system for attaching at tops are equipped with neodymium high energy magnets in form of strips. On the back of the clothing strips there is a matching thin, exible metal strip. Once positioned on the at bar, the clothing strips remain securely in place, because the magnetic forces exceed the developing carding forces by a multiple. Thus, the fastening is 100 % reliable; on the other hand, the clothing strips can simply be peeled off from the side and removed with little effort.

The MAGNOTOP system was developed in cooperation between clothing specialists from Trtzschler Card Clothing and Trtzschler card developers.

Lower costs, higher quality

With MAGNOTOP, there is no longer a need for inhouse ats workshop, additional space, special machines, service, maintenance and according specialists. This corresponds to savings in investment costs between 170,000 and 210,000 US$. Operating costs are eliminated entirely. Another advantage is the quick and easy testing of new types of at tops. The previous set of MAGNOTOP clothing strips can be reused at any time. The patented MAGNOTOP fastening system also compensates tolerances. This simplies precision setting of at tops even more, which in turn improves the carding results and leads to less neps in the yarn. The direct way to increased time and cost efciency Today, replacement of cylinder and doffer clothings directly on site is a matter of course. In contrast, in the past at bars had to be laboriously removed and transported to a special workshop where they were replaced. MAGNOTOP allows complete at top service directly at the card.

It performs precision at setting during production within just a few seconds. After the initial setting, the PFS system can help maintain precise distances throughout the entire service life of a clothing set. The basic setting is further facilitated by the use of the Flat Measuring System FLATCONTROL TC-FCT.

MULTI WEBCLEAN: The tailor-made solution for each application


Cleaning element This element consists of a mote knife with a hood under permanent suction. It is designed to separate tiny dirt particles, seed coat fragments, dust particles, and bre fragments.

Carding element The carding element consists of two clothing strips in a support (TWIN TOP), which can be equipped with a number of different clothing types and nenesses, depending on application area and raw material.

To ensure optimal carding conditions for each application, they must be adjusted to raw material, production volume and targeted quality. For precisely this purpose Trtzschler developed the MULTI WEBCLEAN system. It allows the individual attachment of ten special elements each in the pre- and post-carding area of the cylinder. Only the rst and last element are specied; the remaining eight elements can be exibly selected according to the required production task.

Continuous suction ensures carding quality and efciency


A permanent suction of all points is standard on Trtzschler cards, ensuring increased clean liness, cost effectiveness and efcient dust removal. The main reason for the efciency of the per manent suction is the low operating subpressure and the low air requirement. At -740 Pa or 4200 m3/h (in relation to a card with 1 m width, this is only 3230 m/h), the values are clearly below those of other systems. This can be attributed to the ow optimisation of each individual duct element an advantage that is obvious not only on paper but also on the machine: Transparent duct parts provide an insight into the suction hoods, even while card is in operation.

Lower energy consumption of the card lter


Reduced exhaust air and less negative pressures lower the operating costs of the lter. Based on our spinning mill example, this results in annual savings of US$ 29,050.

TC-C: A can changer as it should be

The can changer TC-C stands freely in front of the card, without mechanical connection. A service aisle between can changer and card reduces the distances.

Can changer for 500 m/min The can changer TC-C is an alternative to the can coiler that is standard on the Trtzschler Card TC 11. It is designed for cans up to 1500 mm height and 1000 mm diameter. All can changers of the TC-C series are new developments designed for the high delivery speeds of the TC 11. Optimal accessibility and operation The can changer stands freely in front of the card, thus it is optimally accessible from all sides. A service aisle between can changer and card results in shorter distances between the cards. The separate drive allows very ne draft adjustments between card and changer via the cards touch screen. Faulty drafts and sliver breaks due to excessive tension draft are no longer possible. Another plus for user-friendliness is provided by the automatic sliver separation during can changing.

The free arrangement saves space and reduces operating time.

A quality control that does not miss a thing

With TC 11, every metre of card sliver is checked prior to its deposit in the can. This is made possible by extensive, integrated quality monitoring during which the sensor data for all relevant areas are gathered: Sliver count Sliver evenness Spectrogram Frequency of thick places The data is evaluated by the card control, and the results appear in form of a diagram on the touch screen. If predened limits are exceeded, the card shuts down automatically. This type of production control of every metre of card sliver

is clearly superior to random laboratory checks because it is performed permanently and online. Thick places are also reliably detected. Upon request, the quality management can also be supported by additional systems and tools:  he online Nep Sensor NEPCONTROL TC-NCT T permanently records the number of neps, dirt particles and seed coat fragments (option)

With the nep sensor NEPCONTROL TC-NCT, Trtzschler offers a unique solution for permanent quality control: TC-NCT monitors the card web during production and provides concrete information on quality. In the process, every single metre of card sliver is tested. Focus on nep level A camera takes approx. 20 pictures per second of the web under the take-off roll. In doing so, the camera moves about the whole working width of the card in a special, fully closed prole. This optical principle copies the visual percep tion of a person, and is thus superior to indirect measuring methods. A high-performance computer directly attached to the prole evaluates the pictures with a special software, distinguish ing between neps, trash particles and seed coat fragments. With NEPCONTROL TC-NCT it is also possible to establish a distribution prole of the nep and particle level over the working width. Possible clothing damage becomes immediately visible this way.

The camera view of the web with trash particles (neps, seed-coat fragments, trash parts).

This is how the evaluation of neps and trash particles appears on the monitor of the card.

FLATCONTROL TC-FCT: The fast at setting

When it comes to fast and accurate calculation of the distance between cylinder and at, the Measuring System FLATCONTROL TC-FCT from Trtzschler offers numerous benets:  Better card sliver quality due to smaller setting tolerances  Extended service life of clothing  Quick at setting Reproducible, objectively veriable settings   Independent of personal inuences Basic settings reproducible at any time When performing basic at settings with FLATCONTROL TC-FCT, rst the measuring at is moved to the corresponding setting position via remote control. The colour monitor of the computer shows a diagram of the current distance to the cylinder. The technician can now adjust the distance of at to cylinder within seconds considerably more accurate than with feeler gauges. Measurement covering the entire at area Taking the place of three regular at bars, the sensors of the FLATCONTROL measuring at record the distance to the cylinder clothing. All measurement values are automatically saved, wirelessly transferred to a notebook and displayed in form of a diagram. Targeted quality optimisation FLATCONTROL TC-FCT is a measuring system that efciently prevents losses caused by too widely set revolving ats. The setting variation within one card group can also be systematically reduced with FLATCONTROL TC-FCT. The result: Each card works within an optimal range, thus signicantly increasing the quality level.

T-Con: Because card setting must be optimal at all times


The distances of the carding elements to each other are the most important settings at the card. They signicantly inuence the carding and therefore the yarn quality. The setting is made on the standing, i.e. relatively cold machine. Up to now, dynamic changes during operation such as centrifugal forces or increases in temperature are not taken into consideration. In the process, they change the card settings during operation. The actual settings during carding have therefore been unknown so far. This has changed fundamentally with the Setting Optimiser T-Con. Its latest version is applied in the Trtzschler Card TC 11.
The elds highlighted in blue show the recommended optimisations determined by T-Con.

For determining exact carding settings and recommending optimisations The optimisation tool T-Con is a software pack age integrated in the card control. It uses special sensors to obtain measured values, e.g. current temperatures or speeds of carding elements, and carries out a permanent analysis of the operating conditions. On the screen of the card control T-Con displays the current distances and recommends possible optimisations, depending on the bres that are being processed at the time. Fast and efcient setting optimisation The at distance can now be changed within seconds, e.g. via the Precision Flat Setting System PFS, even during production. T-Con determines and displays the new operating condition immediately. The setting of the xed carding segments can also be optimised within minutes without measuring tools. To do so, only the T-Con Spacers precise colour-coded distance elements have to be replaced.

This sensor determines contacts between the carding elements.

No chance for clothing damage T-Con also protects the clothings; if the setting is too narrow, a warning appears. In case the metallic wires of two carding elements actually make contact, the card will be stopped immediately before any damage can occur.

Operating costs are considerably lowered with T-Con


Experiences with T-Con show that 10% more production and 10% less IPI values in the yarn are possible, which in case of our spinning mill example equals annual savings in operating costs of approx. 280,000 US$.

The T-Con Spacers can easily be replaced in just a few simple steps and thus enable a reproducible setting of the carding segments.

This sensor monitors the cylinder temperature.

Reliable and user-friendly this is how a control should be


The Trtzschler card control uses a robust industrial computer that records all sensor data and issues according control commands, e.g. to the drive and servo motors. A large colour touch screen facilitates trouble-free control for operators, maintenance specialists and quality managers. Easy to understand and individually congurable The most important advantage of monitor control is the largely language-independent operation via generally comprehensible symbols, diagrams and pictures. At the same time it is possible to display only those operating functions that are currently necessary or useful. In the event of a malfunction, the point of failure is clearly classied and precisely identied by means of a detailed picture or diagram. Continuous quality and production monitoring The control of the Card TC 11 gathers and monitors all machine-relevant data ranging from tuft feeding, card, can changer all the way to Integrated Draw Frame IDF 2.

Operating level: Machine personnel A few simple diagrams and symbols, independent of language, inform the operator about the status of the machine.

Operating level: Servicing personnel Here a variety of password-protected settings can be performed, among other things limit values for all quality shut-downs.

Operating level: Plant manager / Quality manager Here persons with special access authorisation have the possibility to change, among other things, machine congurations and customerspecic data.

Operating level: Trtzschler service technician Trtzschler specialists are able to call up specic data, to perform the service call in a fast and effective manner.

TC-VSD: Innitely variable setting, without compromises


With this method, innitely variable setting of the required cylinder speed, and thus the WEBFEED speeds, is achieved via a frequency converter at the cylinder's drive motor. The control is carried out directly on the screen of the card, which signicantly simplies frequent material changes. Furthermore, the innitely variable rotary speed setting TC-VSD can be used to compensate the wear of the cylinder clothing by a slightly higher cylinder speed, thus maintaining a stable nep level.
With TC-VSD, the speeds of cylinder and WEBFEED can be set innitely variable on the screen.

Perfect interaction of the individual levelling systems


For the production of an even card sliver, a number of measures must interact perfectly: 1. Card feeding In Trtzschler installations, already the material ow to the card is continuously controlled via the CONTIFEED System. Thus, the production requirements of all cards of a line determine the current production of the last machine in the blowroom. The result is a continuous card feeding that forms the basis for an even sliver. 2. Card feeding Additional homogenisation is made possible by the double trunk principle of the tuft feeder. Its continuous, pressure-controlled feeding of the upper and lower trunk prevents unevenness of the card sliver, which for instance can occur during start up and shutdown of the card. In such cases the speed of the tuft feeders feed roll is automatically adjusted to the respective card production. 3. Long-wave levelling Analogous to the sliver mass measurement performed by the sensor in the cards sliver trumpet, the feed roll speed is measured and controlled via a single sensor. It covers the entire spectrum of the regular card sliver counts.

Cutting length without levelling TC 11

The TC 11 guarantees excellent values concerning evenness over the entire length spectrum.

4. Short-wave levelling The Card TC 11 is also equipped with a shortwave sliver count regulation. This system, which is already effective for a sliver length of less than 1 m, considerably improves card sliver evenness. While the thickness of the tuft web is constantly scanned by the Integral Feed Tray SENSOFEED+, the card control calculates a possible adjustment of the feed roll speed from the incoming values.

Four levelling systems adapted to each other guarantee a perfectly constant sliver neness and an excellent evenness.

Better access than ever for efcient maintenance

After removal of the doors, all areas of the card are optimally accessible.

The TC 11 sets benchmarks in terms of maintenance-friendliness. Thus, the doors can be disassembled without tools in just a few minutes. The drives are concentrated on the right side of the machine. The operators are protected by a central safety locking system. Conventional drive covers that can obstruct maintenance work are completely eliminated. Replacement of the WEBFEED Unit is also very simple because it can be replaced in one part. The same applies to the Integral Feed Tray SENSOFEED+. It is also possible to disassemble the complete at cleaning device and the web dofng within shortest time. And, since the can changer has no mechanical connection to the card, cleaning work is simplied in addition to operation.

Targeted maintenance management The card control is a valuable tool for the service technician during maintenance tasks, like clothing care or regular lubrication. Example clothing change: The card control shows this early enough on the screen. Example error detection and recovery: The control offers special tools for this as well. Example operating conditions: In addition to the distances of the card elements as determined by the Setting Optimiser T-Con, for instance rotational speeds, speeds or negative pressures are also displayed.

Maintenance efciency due to digitally controlled servo drives


Meanwhile more than 25,000 Trtzschler cards are equipped with completely maintenance-free servo motors as standard feature. They are used for doffer, web dofng unit and can changer. Another advantage of the digital servo drives is their high efciency, which reduces electrical power losses. Furthermore, they provide a maximum of speed and control accuracy at low speeds, which results in improved sliver CV values. The control of the digital servo drives communicates directly with the card control.

Costs for energy consumption (example 130 kg/h)


Compared to cards that operate without individual drives, Trtzschler cards allow for signicant energy savings. In our spinning mill example, this equals more than 43,000 US$/year.

TC 11-S: The best man-made bre card ever

The spinning mill example Our ctional spinning mill example for manmade bres clearly shows the savings potentials that can be achieved with Trtzschler technology. It features more than 10 man-made bre cards, with an annual production of 160kg/h per card during 8,000 operating hours. This equals a raw material use of approx. 12,800t. The following preinvestment analyses are in reference to this spinning mill example

Usually card development focused primarily on cotton processing. Hence, it came as no surprise that the production capacity of cotton increased signicantly from card generation to card generation: In the coarser yarn segment, the 100 kg/h limit was quickly exceeded. The productivity of man-made bre carding, however, stagnated. This is exactly the reason why Trtzschler chose another path: From the beginning, the current card generation was developed simultaneously for cotton and man-made bres. The Card TC 11-S is the result for man-made bre processing. 12-fold difference: Differences between man-made bre card and cotton card

Extremely resistant: The bre-guiding elements The reviving agent used for many man-made bres has an aggressive effect on paint and base metals. As a result, paint may peel off and metal surfaces may become sticky, thus impairing optimal bre ow in the card. This leads to production limits and frequent production interruptions in cleaning work. On the Trtzschler Card TC 11-S, all plates in the tuft feeder and in the transfer section to the card are made of stainless steel. All covering elements relating to cylinder and doffer consist of high-precision aluminium elements. An anodizing process protects these parts from the aggressiveness of man-made bres. In the can changer, hosepipe and coiling plate made of stainless steel ensure gentle sliver guidance and sliver coiling.

Modied WEBFEED: Higher efciency, quality and service life


The enhanced WEBFEED system for the TC11-S is substantially different from the cotton card. For high production application of cotton, a preopener system with three rolls is essential. For processing man-made bres there is another solution: A newly developed WEBFEED with only one large single roll, featuring a 50 % larger diameter, special needling and a novel surface nish. These measures combined contribute to the signicant production increases. Simultaneously, the WEBFEED system results in improved yarn quality with an average of 30% less imperfections. Another advantage of the especially for manmade bre processing developed needle roll is its signicantly longer service life. It is approximately ten times that of a clothing roll, thus with greatly improved efciency.
The bre-guiding elements, as in this case the feed trunk, are made of stainless steel.

Service cost comparison of lickerin


In the course of 10 years, the clothings in our spinning mill example must be re-clothed about 20 times per card. During the same time frame, a needle roll is maintenance free.

T-Con for TC 11-S: The right chemistry

Obviously thermal inuences affect the carding of man-made bres different than processing of cotton. Without the systematic evaluation of T-Con data during extensive trials this would not have been discovered. For instance, the rule the tighter the at setting, the better the result, does not apply to man-made bres. On the contrary; here it is essential to maintain a certain minimum distance. It prevents electrostatic charges that have a negative effect on carding quality and subsequently also on yarn quality. Hence, the T-Con system for man-made bre carding uses new algorithms and thus provides the basis for precise setting recommendations. The result is a clearly increased production.

Comparison of carding costs


The high productivity of the Trtzschler man-made bre card TC 11-S signicantly reduces production costs. In our example, annual savings of 216,000 US$ are possible even in a low-wage country.

TC-MMF: Application set for tuft blending and cards with changing bres
There are many blends of cotton with man-made bres, be it with polyester, viscose or polyacrylic. With the Optional Set TC-MMF, they all can be processed on the Trtzschler Card TC 11. The TC-MMF features stainless steel surfaces that take the particular bre-metal friction values into account. Its clothings are specically designed for cotton/man-made bre blends, thus eliminating the settling of nishing. An important distinguishing feature is also the number and type of carding segments of the MULTI WEBCLEAN system. Because the carding of a blend containing polyacrylic requires, for instance, more segments than the carding of cotton/viscose.

The clear quality advantages can be conrmed in the laboratory.

The integrated draw frame: Concept with savings potential


The Integrated Draw Frame IDF 2 with automatic can changer

The production-related and economic advantages that can be achieved with the Integrated Draw Frame IDF 2 are enormous: requires less space, requires less cans, simplies can transport, lowers power consumption and reduces personnel and operating costs. Due to increased sliver adhesion and adapted ber orientation, the slivers have a better running behaviour in downstream processing than draw frame slivers.

The strength of the IDF 2 system is also apparent in its design. Thanks to the space-saving arrangement of the draw frame unit above the can changer, it requires no more space than a regular can changer. The IDF 2 allows processing of all bers common in rotor spinning. For coarse and mediumne high-quality OE yarns up to Ne 24 we recommend the combination of TC 11 and IDF 2. This solution offers improved yarn quality and increased economic efciency.

Levelling quality without compromises Immediately before being fed into the drafting system, the card sliver is scanned by the reliable Trtzschler sliver sensor; then it is levelled via the drafting system. The close physical proximity of measuring point and drafting system

ensures reliable levelling of the draft. A second sensor is positioned immediately behind the drafting system. Here the sliver is permanently checked to ensure that every metre deposited in the can corresponds to the required quality.

Never before was a fully-edged leveller draw frame more compact


The use of a simple drafting system at the card was never a satisfying technological solution since only a fully-edged levelling draw frame could guarantee a high degree of quality. Trtzschler combined the compactness of a simple drafting system with the performance of a leveller draw frame. The characteristics:  Maintenance-free, digitally controlled servo drives  High levelling dynamics through low mass inertia  Draft up to 200% (2-fold)  Delivery speeds up to 700 m/min  Controlled material storage for trouble-free can changing Trtzschler quality sensors in the feed and  delivery area  Permanent monitoring of sliver quality The drafting system is integrated in the production ow / sliver run and consists of reliable components of the Trtzschler draw frame. This includes also technical highlights, like for instance the pneumatic load of the top rolls. Very good accessibility The casing of the Integrated Draw Frame IDF2 can be opened quickly without tools. For operation and maintenance purpose, it is simply ipped open in front and back. This ensures quick and uncomplicated performance of service work.

Top rolls in the open drafting system

The service life of the top roll coating is doubled Savings are also achieved with the top roll coatings in the new IDF 2. On the one hand, the top rolls are now in an asymmetric position in the drafting system, while at the same time the loading cylinders are symmetrically arranged in the proven way. This facilitates easy turning of the top rolls by 180 after the coatings wear off, thus doubling their service life. On the other hand, the drafting system has been modied to a 1 zone drafting system to improve sliver quality. In addition, the optimization effort and thus the service costs are lowered by very easy settings. A strong motor A more powerful maintenance free levelling motor makes the IDF 2 more dynamical and a llows it to react faster.
