Schlafhorst Bases BD 380 On Integral Concept
Germany-based Schlafhorst, a subsidiary of Saurer GmbH & Co. KG, reports its new BD 380
semiautomatic rotor spinning machine which features up to 352 spinning units achieves rotor speeds
of up to 110,000 revolutions per minute (rpm) and take-up speeds of up to 180 meters per minute.
The NSB 38 spinbox, combined with the new Value Line spinning component range, improves yarn
quality parameters, producing yarn that, for example, is 20-percent stronger than yarn spun using
conventional comparable technology, Schlafhorst reports. The spinbox also features an optimized
aerodynamic fiber flow and efficient removal of trash particles.
According to the company, the TexParts rotor bearing, adapted to rotor speeds exceeding 100,000 rpm, contributes to machine productivity and reduces energy usage by 5 percent. The machines new winding head features an optimized drive technology and yarn guide, enabling winding of packages of even density that contain up to 15-percent more yarn than conventional packages.
As an option, Schlafhorst's Fancynation fancy yarn device can be incorporated into all spinning units or only into some machine sections.
