The synthetic fibre producer will be showing products in the following fields at the event— IoT in a modern heated godet, new drive system for (super) slow speeds, and special machine construction of drawing frames and the making of the blue thread, Retech said in a press release.
Retech will present various sustainable innovations for heated godets at ITMA 2023.
Among the products to be showcased are IoT technology in a modern heated godet, a new drive system for slow speeds, and special machine construction of drawing frames for making the blue thread.
Other products include yarn tension sensors and air-bearing separator rolls.
Retech’s heated godet rolls are designed with two challenging requirements in mind—applying exactly the correct temperature for the material being produced; and maintaining this level continuously throughout the process. To do this, their designs incorporate energy saving technology, using single-zone or multi-zone heating via induction, infrared, or resistance. This ensures accuracy and precision when it comes to surface temperature profiles—guaranteeing consistent yarn quality every time.
Depending on the process, the customer and their wishes, Retech offers different levels of measures. From a warning mode for a certain time to the shutdown of the godet, there are various options that are defined in detail with the customer. These new possibilities for extending the service life of heated godets are a milestone and a significant contribution to sustainability and reduction of the CO2 footprint.
Retech’s godets represent a unique design that enables customers to drive the draw roll allowing for very low speed applications of only a few meters per minutes or even per hour. This helps ensure top performance regardless of how slowly the process needs to run.
As a highlight, Retech will be showing the making of the blue thread live at the event. By means of a demonstration object, the mentioned products can be seen live in action. All IoTs—vibration measurements, bearing temperature display, induction temperature measurement—will be shown as well as the new drive system for slow-running godets. The innovative creation of the blue thread will also be showcased as a highlight. For this, Retech will show a modular drawing system, which underlines the competence as a special solution provider for R&D facilities, universities, and speciality manufacturers, added the release.
In addition to the three highlights mentioned above, Retech will also be presenting other innovative products from its range including yarn tension sensors and air-bearing separator rolls.
