FADIS - The benchmark company for
This year Fadis celebrates its 58th anniversary, a leading
company in the production of precision winding machines, owned
by the same family since its establishment in 1960. The company
specializes in the production of soft winders, rewinders,
assembly winders, hank to cone winders, reeling machines,
spooling machines and elastic yarn intermingling machines for
the processing of any kind of yarn, from cotton, wool and silk
to artificial and synthetic fibers, mixed fibers, intermingled
yarns and fancy yarns.
In the past five-year period, sales have increased to
staggering numbers: +100% with over 30 million turnover in 2017
and 2018 steadily growing. Fadis is now reaping the benefits
delivered by choices made in the past, first of all, investments
in product research and development.
Flexibility and internationalization are two of Fadis’
strategic pillars. The company exports, on an average, 93% of
its production to 70 countries, offering also post-sales
assistance. It has representative offices and several post-sales
assistance offices in many countries, including the possibility
of activating a remote emergency assistance system directly from
the company’s headquarters.
The company made the right choice by keeping the whole
production based in Italy and working with 95% Italian
suppliers: Flexibility in swiftly meeting the customers’ needs,
guarantee of total quality (checks, tests) and the most
prestigious certifications are the company’s strengths.
Still challenges lay ahead of them. Fadis is now working on
new forms of internal organization integrated with increased
digitalization to reap the opportunities and benefits given by
INDUSTRY 4.0. These are ambitious goals as this is a new
revolution that will change again the manufacturing concept.

Evolution and revolution in elastic
yarns: All in one
Fadis was the first company in the world to introduce the air
covering technology in 1987. Today, 30 years later, its Sincro
Multipla Airjet model is considered the benchmark on the market.
The “Queen” version has been completely renovated. This
Sincro Multipla Airjet model foresees the application of an
electronic motorised unwinding device necessary to unwind an
elastomeric yarn with a perfect and regular draw ratio and to
intermingle it through air with a textured yarn.
The air covering process consists of covering an elastomeric
yarn with other continuous textured yarns. This process takes
place through an air flow controlled by a special jet which
opens the fibre of the covering yarn and closes it around the
As one can well imagine, this is a very delicate process
where both the feed tension and the quantity of yarn entering
the jet must be perfectly controlled so as to guarantee a
homogeneous result of the intermingling pointsnumbers and of
To solve this problem, Fadis, once again first in the world,
has developed a technology, firstly introduced at ITMA Milano
2015, that allows the installation and integration of up to 4
electronic “Tens Control™” online tension devices on each
This device allows the user to set and constantly adjust
online the tension of each ply entering the intermingling
process, thus avoiding the continual interventions of the
operator to manually adjust the tension of each feed ply and to
solve nowadays problems of irregular tension during feed bobbins
This version with its high level of technology will satisfy
the most sophisticated production requirements and guarantee the
formation of packages with perfectly stabilized yarn.
Fadis has made efforts to meet the rising demand for new
yarns types with elastic contents, with the introduction in 2016
of the revolutionary SINCRO MULTIPLA AIRJET DUAL CORE which is
the evolution of the Sincro Multipla Air Jet.
This is a unique machine that allows to produce elastic air
intermingled yarns both for direct weft end use on weaving
machines or for ring spinning end use for core spun or dual core
or tri DCore yarns combinations. Other end uses are also hosiery
and circular knitting.
Thanks to its configuration and to a very efficient use of
the space, it is now possible to double the output when using
the machine with take up, up to 115 mm.
In fact, instead of winding one bobbin up to 115 mm on each
spindle, it is now possible to wind simultaneously, two bobbins
up to 115 mm on each position.
This is obtained thanks to the famous Fadis' "open platform
system/ concept" so that, at the same time the machine can be
used to produce on each spindle either one bobbin wound on a 1O"
tube single bobbin or 2 bobbins x 115 mm.
The conversion from 1 take up per spindle to two take up per
spindle can also take place on existing machine.
All this is obtained without compromising on the features of
the machine that are the same as the Sincro Multipla air jet,
that made it so popular. It will also guarantee repeatable
results which have become so essential in lean production
Fadis will be present at ITMA
ASIA + CITME 2018 in Hall 1, Stand E09.
