The technological specialists of Terrot recently presented a future-oriented innovation: # F132 F132-AJ is the name of the new, trend-setting Terrot development. The Terrot F132-AJ direct spin-knit process uses an air jet spinning system. It does not mount the rovings, clearing or drafting units or indeed spinning nozzles on the knitting machine. Instead it has a creel type arrangement on three sides of the machine which house the complete rovings to spinning process.
In other words, yarns are spun by the side of the machine and then fed to it in a more “normal” way. The F132-AJ spinning unit can be fitted to all Terrot Single-Jersey and Double-Jersey machines. The direct spin-knit system is even suitable for high system densities and large diameters (up to 120 feeders) and can be used in gauges from E20 – E36.
The spinning system, which is modular can be fitted with 24, 32 or 40 spinning heads per unit and has an integrated flyer, integrated fluff removal and integrated monitoring process. The fabrics have a top quality feel and look, a soft handle and good dyeability with rich colours. Elastane plaiting is also possible with the new Terrot system.
The F132-AJ has a speed factor of up to 600 (20 rpm, 30") and unfinished fabric output of up to 360 kg/24 hours (20 rpm, 30"). The new procedure offers a remarkable customer’s benefit with respect to:
33% – 40% less required space
Up to 50% energy savings
Up to 30% less investment costs
Up to 50% less production costs
