SSM with MAKVIZ highlights DIGICONE® 2
-Advanced winding algorithm
precision winding – developed by Schweiter in the 1970s –
combines the advantages of random winding and precision winding.
In Hall 4, at Expo Centre Karachi, SSM is highlighted latest
DIGICONE® step precision winding. The ratio between double
strokes and number of revolutions is kept constant for a certain
diameter range in the latest DIGICONE® step precision winding.
The crossing angle varies only slightly within a range of ±1°.
This results in an enhanced package density that does not change
with increasing package diameter. So the building of pattern
zones is avoided and the package maintains a stable structure
without any ribbons. Due to this stable structure, the risk of
complete layers “slipping off” during the unwinding process of
dyed packages, as known with random winding, is completely
The introduction of the XENO platform opened new
possibilities for optimizing the winding algorithm. Thanks to
this new machine platform, SSM could also release DIGICONE® 2,
enabling an increase of dye package density by another 10–24%
with unchanged dyeing recipes.
