Asteks to exhibit its advanced integrated cots grinding solutions at ITM 2024

Published: May 3, 2024

Offering aprons, cots and multifunctional cots grinding solutions that directly affect the quality and productivity of yarn manufacturers, Asteks will attract attention at the ITM 2024 with its automation and integration-oriented innovations and rich product portfolio.

Asteks, the leading manufacturer of advanced grinding and automation solutions, will share its innovative products with the local and global textile industry at the international textile exhibition ITM 2024 to be held in TÜYAP on June, 4-8. Asteks, at the booth 705B in Hall 7, will display both its rich product portfolio and its strength to access the global market and to textile professionals from different parts of the world. Visitors will be able to see the multifunctional 401-SF&M cots grinding machine and the UV-305 Cots’ Surface Treatment Machine working integrated each other maintaining continuous process from grinding to UV treatment at the Asteks booth.

Stating that R&D-oriented product development and a successful supply chain were effective in Asteks’ rapid growth process in the global market, Asteks Marketing and Sales Manager Sabri İlknur noted that this strategic growth also reflects the power of the Turkish textile industry. İlknur said; “Our products, which show the power of Turkish engineering, are very competitive in terms of price-performance balance as well as quality and longevity criteria. For this reason, we make a great contribution to the export power of the Turkish textile industry with both our aprons and cots products and our cots grinding machines. We attribute great importance to ITM 2024 to showcase our best spinning and automation solutions. In addition to exhibiting our cots grinding machinery and solutions at our two-storey booth, we will also have rest/meeting areas where we can easily meet with our visitors. As the only company that provides end-to-end solutions with our cots grinding machinery, as well as aprons and cots products, we will be happy to see all textile manufacturers at our booth.”

Cots Grinding Machine the 401-SF&M and UV Treatment Machine the UV-305 will be offered in integration

Asteks’ new generation 401-SF&M cots grinding machine has strengthened its flagship position with the interest it has received since it was introduced to the market. The model, which has gained great popularity in the market with the slogan ‘two machines built-in one’, makes a difference with its unique features. While, one of the two independent grinding units on the machine processes the short cots for ring spinning and roving frames in automatic motion and the other unit processes long cots for draw frames and combing machines, at the same time, simultaneously.

This machine provides more automation and efficiency to the cots grinding process and has further increased its appeal with the latest innovation offered by Asteks to textile businesses. Thanks to the Smart Feeding System, the cots are processed automatically without the need to line them up one by one. In addition, by the auto-rejection system over outer diameter, the measurements of the cots for grinding are carried out automatically with the laser system, thus saving labour in the operations. The high-capacity and fully automatic 401-SF&M cots grinding machine guarantees spinners the best efficiency, higher productivity and better standard operation.

“An integrated cots grinding department with the new UV-305 offers great opportunities”

An integrated cots grinding department with the new UV-305 offers great opportunitiesAsteks cots grinding machines, which are among the indispensable element of roller covering departments, can now be integrated with the new UV-305 Cots’ Surface UV Treatment Machine. The UV-305 Cots’ Surface UV Treatment Machine, which was first announced at the ITMA Milano last year, contributes to increasing yarn quality while reducing costs of maintenance. Focusing on the automation and integration of cots grinding departments in spinning mills, Asteks will demonstrate this at the exhibition by operating 401-SF&M and UV-305 integrated to each other.

This new solution significantly increases the life of the cots for draw frame and combing machines and yarn quality and is designed for enterprises with high spindle capacity. The machine, which processes the cots surface with 4000-Watt Ultraviolet (UV) irradiation, can work fully integrated with Asteks’ cots grinding machines due to its high performance and automation capability. Thanks to the integration, the cots that come out of grinding process on the 401-SF&M cots grinding machine are irradiated in UV-305 without the need for any operator attendance, and then become ready for direct use.

Pointing out that the UV-305 Cots’ Surface UV Treatment Machine has several advantages, Sabri İlknur said; “Improving the surface of the cots with UV after cots grinding on short staple fibre spinning machines processing synthetic and blended fibres provides many benefits. First of all, the risk of fibre lapping on the cots is reduced. The start-up becomes easier and better efficient after doffing on spinning machines, and this saves labour and prevents losses in productivity. Since the cots surface is improved by UV, less fibre is carried to the upper flock roller, which cleans the cot in the spinning machine. This also means reducing raw material loss. UV-305, which provides perfect operation as an optional integration into 401 series cots grinding machines, can also be used independently. The transformation of cots grinding departments into a fully integrated structure will provide better efficiency and thus higher profitability that yarn manufacturers need more than ever in recent tougher operational circumstances. This ultimately leads to increased competitiveness. This is exactly what we do as Asteks.”

Innovative aprons-cots solutions will be featured at the Asteks booth

ITM visitors will also be able to see aprons and cots products at the Asteks booth, which attract great attention in the market with their quality and durability as well as price-performance balance. GESA/OPS-performance perforated aprons designed for compact spinning systems, the best-selling NT-86/S aprons, the Apron reinforced by Carbon , the CTA, designed for higher wear resistance offering better performance in tougher fancy spinning conditions like core yarn and synthetic fibre blend yarn production, S/TE-682 texturing system aprons, new generation late fouling Draw Frame cots with this feature and many other innovative products will be displayed throughout the exhibition.

Sabri İlknur said that they are looking forward to the ITM 2024 to discuss new investments and developments with the textile industry and added that the exhibition will not only contribute to the competitive and sustainable power of the textile industry, but also will have a serious impact on a global scale.
