Dell'Orco & Villani Introduces Twin Carding Opener

Dell'Orco & Villani S.r.l. — an Italy-based manufacturer of fiber blending equipment and machinery and plants for recycling textile waste materials — has introduced the Twin Carding Opener (TCO) fiber carding and opening machine. A revision of the company's CO single drum opener, the state-of-the-art machine features two cylinders that work in tandem as well as a number of peripheral working rollers.

The TCO comprises two sections: the first featuring two feed rollers with rigid wire clothing, a main cylinder that can be clothed with rigid wire or supplied with lags and pins, and three working rollers with rigid wire clothing; and the second featuring a main cylinder and five working rollers, all with rigid wire clothing. According to the company, the different combinations possible for wire clothing choice, speed options and the distance setting between rollers and main cylinders enable flexibility in the machine's applications, allowing opening of a range of nonwovens production waste — even that which usually cannot be processed on comparable machines on the market. The machine is available in either a 1,500-millimeter (mm) or 1,000-mm working width, and can be fed either manually or by a chute feed or regular hopper feeder.

Dell'Orco & Villani reports the machine uses only 20 percent of the power usually required for comparable operations; offers high productivity; and has a low footprint.
