Germany-based Schlafhorst, a Saurer Group company, reports it has sold its 1,000th rotor-spinning machine to Turkey-based Emateks, a member of the Emre Tekstil Textile Group. Emateks is completing its vertical integration with the addition of a spinning mill, and the Schlafhorst Autocoro 9 will be installed in the new facility. The mill will produce approximately 20,000 metric tons of yarn per year in counts ranging from Ne 10 to Ne 40.
“We of course only want to use state-of-the-art rotor-spinning technology in our own yarn production,” said Gürdal Adal, owner, Emateks. “The Autocoro 9 has impressed us in particular with its high flexibility and economic efficiency, as well as through the huge energy savings of more than 20 percent.”
