Pinter introduces yarn solutions
Pinter Group presented its technology
solutions at ITMA 2019, starting with OptiFil -the last
generation of individual optical yarn sensors. Detecting the
movement of the traveller, OptiFil controls continuously the
status and RPM of each yarn position. All the data collected
from the sensors can be delivered to the monitoring software to
have a complete view of the spinning department in real time.
OptiFil can also be connected to the Roving Stop system to stop
the roving in case of yarn breakages, says Pinter Group.
- The only way to avoid low twist for
100% of the spindles.
- Zero maintenance product.
- Available for 68.75;70 mm gauge.
- Superfast detection and communication
allows to detect breakages in less than one second and
activates the roving stop instantaneously.
- Auto limitation of power supply when
there are more than 12 breakages per section: LEOs intensity
decreases automatically to avoid energy waste.
- LED lights are installed directly in
the PCB card to ensure the robustness of the system.
- In case of dirt or obstacles in
front of the sensor, it will alarm the operator.
Fancyflex Attachment by Pinter Group is a
new revolutionary attachment for producing Mosaic yarn. The yarn
suddenly changes colour, not by dyeing or printing, but by a
change of the fed roving. According to the company, the
transition from one colour to the next is extremely short, less
than 1 cm, so the change is clean and precise. FancyFiex allows
a quick change from normal yarn to Mosaic yarn and backwards.
- Repeatability of the pattern is fully
- The appearance in the fabric is much
cleaner compared to the standard Injection, without the
fibre contamination: no tails of the previous colour are
dragged behind. The length of the programme can be extended
as long as necessary to cover one whole garment
- The attachment can be retrofitted on
any type of ring frame.
- Besides striped yarn, the attachment
allows the production of injected and slub yarn. These
effects can be combined at the same time, controlling
multiple variables such as thickness, length and randomness.
It also allows the production of conventional yarn as well.
