During automatic bobbin changeover, the finished bobbin is pushed into a parking position while the next bobbin is already being wound. Perfect for automated doffing and higher flexibility for manual doffing.
Adjustable yarn reserve with minimum yarn tail after automatic changeover.
You get full adjustability for: traverse width, bobbin shape, bobbin positioning and yarn reserve choice.
Godet per winding head pulling the yarn from the preprocess.
TWINSTAR II series provides a winding head assembly for q-wind direction as a standard while a mirror-inverted assembly for p-wind direction is available as an option.
Air entanglement of single or assembled multifilament yarns while the yarn length of several assembled ends is kept equal (low catenary effect) and the cumulative strength of the yarn is maintained.
Monitoring of yarn thickness to check for broken filaments and problems with material quality.
With/without knot deflector and/or melt catcher.
Online yarn diameter monitoring, with optional closed- loop system for control of the diameter regulated by the winding speed. Separation of the production whenever material leaves the tolerance range.
Double scroll cam for two different traverse lengths.
Automatically controlled pneumatic cutting device per winding position provides a clear shear cut of yarns during start-up and refeeding processes.
Automatic yarn suction device per winding position for higher operator convenience during start-up and refeeding processes.
Easy maintenance unit with and without easy change connector (ECC), helps to quickly disconnect and remove the winding head for maintenance purposes.
Exclusive SAHM maintenance feature for secure, quick removal of the complete winding head.
Monitoring application to track the production of each winder.
Yarn cooling and relaxing chamber helps avoid residual shrinkage and preserve material properties.
Easy Storage Doffer enables automatic bobbin and tube changes and intermediate storage of finished bobbins.
The TWINSTAR II can be adapted to different handling systems. From Easy Storage Doffers for individual winding stations to fully automated robotic solutions for large and complex production lines.
Central process control unit (HMI touch screen) for input, display and storage of process and machine parameters.
Interface to DCS (Distributed Control System) or OPC UA data exchange system.
Remote access and support for diagnosis and guidance during troubleshooting.
SAHM offers scalable automation solutions for TWINSTAR II winder lines ranging from an Easy Storage Doffer for single winding positions to AGV fleet integration with robotic options and temporary bobbin storage for lines with several winding positions.
SAHM provides comprehensive winder and automation solutions for one-stop support. You have the convenience of a single design, engineering and service partner.
Whether a single head in a spinning mill or a complete production line with hundreds of winding heads – the TWINSTAR II fits almost everywhere.
In addition to the listed standard parameters and options for the SAHM TWINSTAR II family, manyother customer-specific features are available.
