Fadis highlights evolution and
revolution in elastic yarns
Fadis is one of the first companies in the
world to introduce the air covering technology in 1987. Today,
30 years later, its Sincro Multipla Airjet model is considered
as the benchmark on the market.
It is important to highlight that 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 the air with textured yarn.
The air covering process consists of
covering an elastomeric yarn with other continuous textured
yarns. This process takes place through an airflow controlled by
a special jet which opens the fibre of the covering yarn and
closes it around the core (elastane). 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 to guarantee a homogeneous result of the
intermingling points numbers and their strength.
To solve this problem, Fadis, once again
first in the world, has developed a technology, that allows to
install and integrate up to 4 electronic “Tens Control™” on-line
tension devices on each spindle.
This device allows to set and constantly
adjust on-line 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
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.
Furthermore, the demand for new yarns
types with elastic contents is on the continuous rise and, once
more, Fadis is the forefront of new trends with the introduction
of the revolutionary SINCRO MULTIPLA AIRJET DUAL CORE in 2016,
which is the evolution of the Sincro Multipla Air Jet.
This is a unique machine that allows
producing 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 mills.
Thanks to its configuration and to 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 takeup per spindle to two takeups per
spindle can also take place on an 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
Lastly, this also guarantees repeatable
results so essential nowadays where lean production methods/
systems are a very important aspect of long term profitability.
