Trützschler’s new state-of-the-art comber machine, TCO 21, is designed to boost productivity, ensure quality and support increased automation. The TCO 21 is the latest milestone in a long history of driving progress for spinners around the globe. It leverages market-proven designs and technologies from Trützschler to offer next-level performance and an expanded range of features that give our customers a decisive advantage over their competitors. One of the key benefits of the TCO 21 is its advanced processing speed. This next-generation combing
machine is able to produce at a rate of up to 600 nips per minute. This puts it at the very top of the market, offering best-in-class productivity. To increase this even further, the TCO 21 can be coordinated with Trützschler’s highly economical JUMBO CANS (Ø 1.200 mm). They not only reduce yarn defects due to fewer piecings, which leads to quality improvements, but also offers a significantly higher efficiency because of their larger dimensions. This, for example, has positive effects on the number of necessary cans and can transports – and results in lower personnel costs.
The TCO 21 comes with Count Monitoring as a standard feature, making it possible for the machine operator to define limits for count variations via an easy-to-use display. Trützschler’s Disc Monitor system of sensors measures the count continuously, and the machine alerts the operator and switches off if the limit is exceeded. In addition, the Count Monitoring function also includes spectrogram analysis. Customers can further strengthen their focus on quality by choosing to add the Count Control function to the TCO 21. It is managed via the same easy-to-use display and offers automatic sliver count measurement, as well as spectrogram analysis.
On top of this, it automatically regulates the main draft during production to balance count variations and ensure the desired sliver count. This feature is particularly attractive for customers who manufacture blends of cotton and synthetic, as it can also be used to avoid variations in the overall yarn composition.
The TCO 21 marks an exciting step forward in the constant journey toward more effective spinning processes. With its impressive range of modern and easy-to-use automated features, the machine is able to boost productivity and quality, while empowering operators to customize and optimize performance quickly and easily.
