ITMA Asia + CITME 2012 Exhibitor Preview: Bräcker, Graf, Novibra and Suessen
The 4 companies Bräcker, Graf, Novibra and Suessen joined their sales forces, uniting the world's leading brands for the supply of technology components to the textile industry, forming the only global provider of components for all spinning technologies. At ITMA Asia the latest development to improve fibre yield and productivity will be presented.
Founded in 1835 as a family business, Bräcker AG soon developed as a specialist for key products in the textile industry. With the expansion to France in 1951, the foundation was laid for successful international development. Thanks to steadfast development of new markets early on, in particular overseas, Bräcker AG became a global market leader. The take-over of Gretener Yarn Carriers in 2001 and of BERKOL in December 2007 completed and strengthened Bräcker AG's product range.

Novibra Boskovice s.r.o.
Novibra is the leader in spindle technology and the only 100% in-house spindle maker.In 1988 the revolutionary HPS design changed the classical ring spinning and opened new prospects for spinning in speed up to 25 000 RPM. Till now this design maintains unbeatable position and becomes synonym for high speed spindle design.
The high performance of spindles on modern automated ring frames requires state of the art clamping device for an effective and reliable doffing.
The new Novibra clamping crown CROCOdoff uses centrifugal effect for opening and closing at defined spindle speed. Reliable clamping and yarn cutting brings considerable advantages, to the spinners, during doffing.
