Impact FX, the next generation: Optimisations for increased

From September 2018, all Zinser compact spinning machines
will be supplied with a new Impact FX Generation. The pioneering
features include the enlarged front top rollers and compact
front top rollers with new cots, the original Zinser compact
apron, the built-in leaf spring and the flow-optimised suction
tubes. The new generation of Impact FX reduces manufacturing
costs, improves process safety and produces excellent yarn

Front top roller with 30 mm diameter
and defined offset to the front
The diameter of the front top roller was increased to 30 mm.
Thanks to the larger diameter, the roller can be ground down
more frequently, which in turn increases usability. The defined
offset to the front of +1 mm achieves more precise fibre
clamping. Even floating fibres can thus be more effectively led
into the main draft field – for optimal yarn quality.
The front top roller is fitted with the new AccoSmart
sandwich cots. By a combination of two tailor-made, high-quality
elastomer layers, AccoSmart cots feature higher deformation and
provide larger contact surfaces compared to conventional
one-layer soft cots. A higher degree of abrasion resistance and
a lower susceptibility to tears are thus achieved.
Optimised compact front top roller
The new Impact FX unit has an optimised compact front top
roller with new roller cots and a diameter that has been
modified to 27 mm. The new cots and the greater roller diameter
improve the technical spinning qualities, thereby significantly
contributing to the quality of the yarn. Overall, the compact
element can now be adjusted even more easily and in a more
New suction tube with optimised bracket.
Original Zinser compact aprons
The centrepiece of Impact FX is the self-cleaning compact
apron. The newly developed Original Zinser compact apron has an
optimised inner layer and offers improved running qualities and
a longer lifetime. It can now be economically replaced during
standard machine maintenance.
Leaf spring for secure positioning
The new leaf spring enables the secure positioning of the
Impact FX unit. The optimisation leads to constant compacting
and guarantees a constantly compact yarn quality from spinning
position to spinning position.
Flow-optimised suction tube
Last but not least of the innovations is the flow optimised
suction tube with improved suction effect. It consists of a base
body with an enlarged internal diameter and a matching adaptor.
The new tube reliably avoids lap formation. It is easier to
clean and replace, as there is no longer a need to differentiate
between the left and the right tube. The opening of the tube is
easily positioned accordingly.
