Our solutions to entire textile machinery

Man-made fiber

Transforming chemical compositions into synthetic fibers with extruders, spinning pumps, godets, take up winders and texturizing machines.

Synthetic fibers make up a growing proportion of fiber production worldwide, with no finite limitations for production capacities. The continuous availability of crude oil in sufficient quantities will further grow the production capacity and hence cater for the increasing needs of a rapidly growing world population.

 

For decades, Siemens has proven to be a reliable partner for drive and automation solutions, the use for extruders, spinning pumps, godets, texturizers, and take up winders.

 

With an automation solution from Siemens, you benefit from the following:

 

  • Complete solutions from a single source, from the drive and automation system through project development, coordination, configuration and control cabinet design, all the way to commissioning.
  • Avoide production downtime through on-time servicing and a 24hrs worldwide technical support.
  • Reduced configuration and commissioning cost due to Totally Integrated Automation, a uniform tool for configuring converters, and a remote maintenance and error diagnostics by means of teleservice.
  • Customer specific developments of synchronous motors with additional squirrel cage for high precision speed setpoint operation based on U/F diagram. The possibility for a bulk inverter operation.
  • Development of cost-effective customer specific drives for machine manufacturers with integrated technology, e.g. dancer control.

Fabrics

Transforming single fibers into fabrics by weaving, warp knitting, knitting and non-woven machines.

We offer solutions to basic or complex fabric manufacturing applications

We offer system solutions to all conventional textile fabric manufacturing applications. Our services span across knitting, warp-knitting or weaving, including weaving preparation, and subsequent process steps: We provide the right automation and drive solutions to fulfil the most complex requirements.

 

Non-woven manufacturing – This innovative sector that needs continuous developments

Nonwoven machines are one of the most innovative areas in the textile sector.
The emergence of new fields of applications, such as geotextiles or filtration media have contributed to a constant market growth. Continuous improvements in the production and processing process drive innovation.

 

Our Automation and drive portfolio provide manufacturers the basis to master challenges with confidence. With the use of complex motion profiles, we can configure a tailored solution system with our modular and scalable product portfolio to serve a vast majority of applications ranging from simple mixers to highly sophisticated machines such as cross lappers.

 

We offer automation solutions for complete Non-woven lines. This includes integrated safety functionality, state-of-the-art communication via Profinet and arbitrary complex motion control.

A solution from Siemens offers superior performance and flexibility, easy and  integrated engineering and a worldwide product and application support.

Natural fiber

Natural fiber

Transforming natural materials into yarn with bale opener, carding machines, draw frames, flyer and ring spinning machines. 

Whether pure cotton or joint fabric, staple fibers are still the backbone in the textile industry. The most part of the product “yarn” is manufactured using conventional spinning procedures. The manufacturing process starts by supplying the fabric in bales - no matter if made of cotton or synthetic fiber. The process chain goes through a bale opener, tuft feeder, mixer, carding machine, draw frame, comber and flyer and finally gets to the actual spinning process.

 

Much has changed during the past decades. In addition to the conventional ring spinning process, further procedures such as compact spinning and rotor spinning are also used today.

 

The interaction of different drives and transmission elements in modern Yarn production, places high demand on drives and automation. Single axis solutions and intelligent drive concepts in combination with our controllers form a consistent concept. With an automation solution from Siemens, you benefit from the following:

  • Suitability for use in the spinning room through flow-through or cold plate cooling.
  • Cost-effective complete solution through proven, customized products/systems through optimized automation of the machine.
  • Low space requirement and reduced number of components through compact converter and dual-axis modules through multi-axis drive control.
Portfolio
