Oerlikon Saurer Hosts Open House In Suzhou, Ships 200,000th Allma Cabling Spindle

Germany-based twisting and embroidery machinery supplier Oerlikon Saurer — a segment of Oerlikon Textile GmbH & Co. KG, Germany — recently hosted an open house at its showroom in Suzhou, China, to present the new Allma TC2 cabler for industrial yarns. Guests from China, India and other Asian countries were taken on a tour of the facility before viewing demonstrations of the new machine.

The company reports the Allma TC2 has been designed to meet the high-quality demands of the market while also operating in a highly flexible way with new spindle technology and winding units. Yarns including polyamide, polyester, polypropylene, polyethylene and aramids in a wide range of counts from fine to coarse may be cabled using the TC2. The machine operates at speeds of up to 450 meters per minute, and can produce even small lots and samples economically. According to the company, the PrimePac twist packages produced on the machine feature a homogenous density, precise length measuring for large running lengths and better unwinding properties.

Customers may visit the Oerlikon Saurer technology centers in Suzhou or Kempten, Germany, to conduct their own trials using the TC2 cabler.

In related company news, Oerlikon Saurer recently shipped its 200,000th Allma cabling spindle to China-based tire cord and industrial yarn producer China ShenMa Group Co. Ltd. At the recent Suzhou open house, representatives from ShenMa were presented with a gold-plated cabling spindle to mark the occasion. Allma's Head of Sales Wolfgang Schoeffl thanked ShenMa as well as all of Allma's global customers for their loyalty and confidence in their products.

Representatives from Allma presented a gold-plated cabling spindle to representatives from ShenMa to commemorate the 200,000th shipment of an Allma cabling spindle.
