LMW has unveiled its 3 pronged approach of Automation, Digitization & Innovation for addressing the emerging challenges of the Spinning industry at ITMA 2019, Barcelona.

From day 1 of the event, the technology and the features of the products showcased in our stall were well appreciated and received by the customers. With an overall footfall of 1200 visitors, the response was overwhelming. Innovative products for different spinning systems viz. Ring spinning, Open End spinning and Air Jet spinning were displayed.

The technologies devised by LMW are committed to address the challenges faced by the spinning industry. LMW throughout its near to six decade journey has been working to solve the challenges of the textile industry by providing solutions and value added products.

RAP system (Ringframe Autopiecing system )

Presently, the biggest challenge faced by the spinning industry is shortage of skilled manpower. Especially in the area of Ring Spinning, the piecer needs to be trained and skilled to do the piecing in lesser time so that the machine efficiency is not disturbed, which is a major concern for the spinners. With increased spindlage of the Ring frames, the operators also get fatigue often. Now we have a solution from LMW.

Our RAP (Ringframe Auto Piecing), is revolutionary technology in this direction. Its unique underpiecing method is similar to the piecing done in mills by operators. These features were well appreciated by the visitors and they were convinced that this technology shall support them in scaling up to new heights. This automation from LMW will lead to major labour saving in the ring spinning industry.

Lakshmi Jet Spinning – LJS 9

The fast growing demand for products made from MMF in today’s scenario has pushed the industry to identify alternate new spinning systems such as Airjet Spinning. After continuous research and innovation, LMW has now made its mark in this domain with the latest launch of LJS 9, the Airjet Spinning machine. With a maximum capacity of 200 spinning units, the machine is capable of running upto 550 mpm. The individual drive system for each spinning unit enables flexibility in operation. The dual side spinning facilitates better space utilization. LJS 9 comes with a fully automated setup in case of doffer, piecer and empty tube loader. The filter system on both sides are independent of each other. These highlights made LJS 9 a favorite among the visitors.

Lakshmi Auto Winder – LAW 60

LAW 60 is a result of market study, analysis and rigorous research and development. With a maximum capacity upto 60 drums for link winders and delivery speed 2200 mpm, LAW 60 comes with Auto doffer, Adaptive Yarn Tensioning System, Dual preparation stations for coarser counts, Individual drives for all machine elements and Dynamic balloon controller. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology in Ringframe pegs can be integrated which shall help in individual spindle monitoring.

Card with Drafting System – CDS

Few customers opt for a shortened preparatory process for their Open End and Airjet spinning processes. To benefit them and to meet the demand, LMW has come out with a new technology in Carding – CDS, Card with Drafting System. Here a drawing operation is integrated with the Carding machine with a maximum delivery speed of upto 700 mpm. It has specific features such as pnuematic loading of top rollers, auto piecing of sliver, electronic sliver cutting mechanism & auto levelling.

Fix Fil

LMW after thoroughly understanding the spinners’ need for effective space utilization in their mills has worked out and unveiled its innovative can changing system, “Fix Fil”. The new system works with minimal movement of can and the can change happens at the running speed itself. These features lead to efficiency improvement in Card and Drawframe. With maximum possible can dimensions of 1200mm X 1300 mm (diameter X height), there is a 56% increase in the can volume. This technology addresses the manpower shortage challenge.
