It is estimated that more than 80% of global energy is still generated from fossil fuels that produce CO2 emissions and contribute to climate change. Trützschler has developed the intelligent card TC 19i for energy-efficient carding.
The TC 19i features the unique T-GO gap optimizer, which continuously and automatically monitors and adjusts the carding gap to an ideal position during production. Innovative drive and air technology further reduce energy consumption.
The most energy-intensive elements in a carding machine are the drive, the dust suction process and the compressed air system. Compared to conventional machines, the TC 19i consumes at least 10% less energy/kg of material produced when manufacturing rotor yarn from a cotton and cotton waste mix at the production of 180 kg/h.
