New winder asset
As written above, the heaviest cost of
chenille manufacturing is definitively the WINDING process.
Thanks to the Iteco® CMC, the frame doffing will immediately
release the no-defected-chenille spindles, so that a consistent
percentage of good yarn can by secured ON FRAME at DOFFING.
As consequence, the no-defected-spindles will NOT NEED TO
BE CLEARED. The benefit of the above new doffing is the
new asset on winding department.
For the first time, a percentage of chenille yarn can be
automatically wound, with no workers needing and a dramatic
reduction of labour costs and operator's mistakes. The new
winding dept will be made up by:
- A semi-automatic fast winder with auto-doffing
and creel for the rewinding of no-defected-spindles
- A manual winder with clearers for the
remaining defected spindles
The assignment of workers on the first
winder may vary from 1 to 2 persons every 60 heads, which
provide just the feeding of the creel. No more knots, no
more stops or clearing cuts.

saving on real time
With the alarming function, the LED of
a sensing head can be alarmed in case the spindle will shortly
reach a number of defect, due to malfunction of frame head.
Most probably this spindle will be full of defect and will
need to be trashed. Thanks to Iteco® CMC frame workers
will be able to locate the non-working head, stop the spindle,
service and re-start it with a new cop.
In the past, none knew if a spindle had to be trashed before
the winding process; this meant that:
- Kilograms of chenille and money lost
- Plastic tubes busy days for nothing
- Winding time lost
- Worst quality and efficiency of the
Easy to image
how the frame efficiency can immediately grove up!
The Iteco® CMC can also help mill managers
to supervise and increase the Machine production efficiency.
Thanks to the Iteco advanced electronics, every sensing
head can recognize if yarn passing inside is moving or stopped;
automatically the Data Station calculates running times
and stop times of every spindles, making also the average
efficiency (in %) of the full Machine. Thanks to this functions,
frame performances can be analysed (shift by shift, operator
by operator) and low efficiencies easily discovered and
Real Time Frame Servicing
The Iteco® CMC also real-time detects
if a Machine head needs maintenance. The LED alarm on sensing
head will light everytime a head starts manufacturing bad
Operators can immediately make required servicing, without
any other lose of time and money lost as bad chenille already
Set quality levels
Quality can be easily chosen by mill managers
by entering the desired defect lengths to be detected. Data
Station accepts up to 10 defect classes, with different
length ranges and different alarm thresholds. Quality of
your production is your desired quality!
A little sample:
Suppose that you want to check 3 defect classes:
- 1) from 0.5 to 3 mm
- 2) from 3 to 6 mm
- 3) more than 6 mm
& assigning the alarming as following
- Class (1) - No alarm.
- Class (2) - Alarms @ 10 defects.
- Class (3) - Alarms @ just 1 defect.
At the doffing, your can have:
- 1st class spindles to be just wound
- 2nd class spindles, to be (in case)
switched to a weaving that accepts up to 6mm defects
- 3rd class spindles, to be cleared because
with more that 1 long defect to be removed.
When a head reach the set up alarm threshold,
the LED lights up. In this case, the Machine operator can
decide also to stop the head, making servicing and:
1) place a new spindle and reset the counters (automatically
made by the Data Station)
2) leave the spindle as it is and share it at the doffing.
years of chenille and fancy yarn experience available at
your factory place!
Software is the core of the system and has been developed
to meet future quality standards requirement.
Programming has never been so easy. And complete, to offer
high-quality yarns at the most competitive prices.
Touch-screen display software shows all data at your fingertip.
Data coming from several Machines can also
be centralised in just one Personal Computer, using the
Iteco PC software CMCPc for spinning. Mill Management can
have always under control what's going on at the spinning
department and have databases to work on.
Remote programming of the Iteco®CMC is also available
via PC software, with clearing programs to be easily saved
as files to be quickly recalled for further spinning. All
collected data are automatically saved on MS Excel files,
in order to be elaborated as much as supervisor wants.
Automatic efficiency printouts are also available to check
on paper the quality and manufacturing performances. Graphics
are also available to be printed out.
