Rieter Installs 1 111th UNIlap Invests In New SpinCenter

Rieter Installs 1,111th UNIlap,Invests In New SpinCenterSwitzerland-based Rieter Textile Systems recently celebrated the installation of the 1,111th UNIlap since the combing preparation machinery was introduced in the late 1980s. A UNIlap E 32, the third generation of the UNIlap line, was handed over to J.K. Spinning Mills Ltd., Bangladesh, during a ceremony attended by representatives of both companies.

Rieter reports the drawframe/ UNIlap system enables higher feeds and speeds than earlier sliver lap/ribbon lap systems, and meets the requirements for medium-count yarn and for finest-quality yarn. The UNIlap E 32 achieves production rates of up to 360 kilograms (kg) per hour, lap weights up to 25 kg, batt weights up to 80 grams per meter and a low count variation over the lap length. In 2002, Rieter delivered several dozen combing systems to India and Bangladesh.In other news, Rieter announced it has invested 3 million Swiss francs ($2.3 million) to renovate buildings and install Luwa air conditioning systems for a new SpinCenter at its headquarters in Switzerland. The company states the new facility provides improved customer support and consulting expertise. June 2003
