Maylasia-based Ramatex Textiles Industrial has placed an order with Germany-based Saurer
Schlafhorst, a Saurer Group business unit, for compact ring spinning equipment. The order includes
eight Zinser 670 roving frames and a FlexFlow roving bobbin transport system, which will supply
50,400 spindles on a Zinser 351 Impact FX spinning machine featuring CoWeMat 395V. The spinning
frame will be linked directly to 30 Autoconer X5 machines. Ramatex also ordered a Plant Operation
Center to record production and quality data.
Ramatex is a fully vertical company with plants in Singapore, Malaysia, China and Cambodia.
The company will use yarns spun using the new equipment in its in-house knitting mills.
