On June 20, 2002, the Starlinger Group took over one of the global technology leaders for precision winding machinery Georg Sahm GmbH & Co. KG, Eschwege/Germany. This was celebrated during the Techtextil in Frankfurt/Germany. Starlinger & Co. Ges.m.b.H., Vienna/Austria, is a manufacturing company of machines and complete systems for the production of woven plastic bags, as well as systems for plastics recycling, PET extrusion and finishing.
The photo shows Sahm's exhibit BoDo II at their booth. It is a mobile, fully automatic doffing and transport system for bobbin and tube handling. With it, the pick-up of bobbins at the winding machine as well as the set-up with empty tubes is performed entirely automatically. Bobbins are then transported automatically to freely defined locations in the production workflow.
Claudia van Bonn, Editor-in-Chief of TextileTechnology, congratulated the company representatives on the anniversary.
