At the ITMA Asia + CITME in June 2021 in Shanghai/China, Savio Macchine Tessili SpA, Pordenone/Italy, will exhibit its solutions-oriented portfolio to maximize machinery return on investment, both for machinery and for technical service: winding solutions especially studied for processing cotton/spandex, modal and lyocell yarns. The company offers machinery solutions to support the quality of the final yarn product: winding, winding for continuous shrinkage, bulking and heat setting; TFO twisting; open-end rotor spinning.
Another main exhibit are the Savio 4.0 digital solutions for data exchange in manufacturing technologies. The new possibilities offered by the connection of the machines translate into the different levels of Savio Industrial IoT, with the possibility of progressive sophistication. Different option levels, each corresponding to a different dose of Industry 4.0 applied to Savio textile winding machinery, from simple connectivity and machinery data downloading, to remote machine setup, to operator real-time interactivity. Automation and digital solutions have been two big drives for the company in the last years. The requirement for integrated automation in the spinning process is increasing, because of yarn quality and productivity advantages that such solution offers.
This integrated automation drive has led to the solutions, to increase flexibility to/from winder. The latest automated solution is the Multi-Link, that connects multiple ring spinning frames (RSF) to one winder, becoming a tailor-made circuit to link up to four RSFs to one winding machine. This solution optimizes space, reduces energy-consumption and production costs. This automatic bobbin transport shortens servicing paths for the operators and allows an ergonomic material flow. The costs for production, space and energy are reduced, while keeping the quality consistent even with long and multi-connected machines.
The company’s after-sales service has also a new Augmented Reality tool to fast trouble shoot, improve processes and increase machine utilization time. Due to the current travel restrictions, in order to ensure machinery effectiveness, Savio is offering remote assistance powered by TeamViewer Pilot, an application that allows interaction in augmented reality. Thanks to this application, experts from the Italian headquarters can support field technicians at the customer site, in real time, through video sessions for faster troubleshooting.
