"Savio's strategy is not the outcome of improvisation, but the rational development of a design that began at ITMA in Paris and which has gradually taken on shape and size thanks to teamwork," said Daniele Pellissetti, order administrator director. "Savio fully realizes that its mission is to supply a highly original product to the world textile industry," said Pellissetti.
Each ORION winder uses the Computer Aided Package (C.A.P.®) system to maintain control and tension to produce a consistent package during winding. ORION is available in four models: E, I, L and M.
Pellissetti provided Textile World with information about some of Savio's latest installations.
