The merger of the group activities of Vandewiele NV, Kortrijk/Belgium, and Savio Macchine Tessili SpA, Pordenone/Italy, has resulted in a wide range of synergies in the service, care solutions and developments, with benefits for the customers.
Vandewiele Savio will be exhibiting at the ITME India in New Delhi/India from December 8-13, 2022.
Bonas, another brand of Vandewiele Group, will present innovations in jacquard technology. Future proof digital machines with maximum weaving design flexibility, are paramount. Based on the Bonas Ji and JiL range, the JiXXL, will be on display at ITME India for the first time. Reliability, high productivity, high efficiency and maximum flexibility are now possible with the lowest energy consumption.
Apart from many traditionally woven carpets on the RCE+ carpet weaving machine, Vandewiele will also promote the digitally controlled RCF machine with Fast Creel, cut-loop machines, and specific machines for weaving light carpets. All will be illustrated by carpet samples. The digital control of yarns allows the development of new qualities, a higher production efficiency and a closer follow-up of the machine park. Yarn waste is reduced at the highest production speed. Combinations of cut pile carpets with flatweave as well as sisal look carpets will be presented. The highest carpet qualities in reed 1000 d/m 10 colors, 1200 d/m and 1500 d/m with up to 5 million points/m² will also be shown.
In tufting, the digital control of pile yarns (active yarn feed, also called IPD) has allowed the development of high definition Colortec 1/10” tufting carpet in 8 colors – or 1/7” gauge, competing with the traditional Axminster carpets. Furthermore, solutions for plain carpets, artificial grass and the Myriad machines for tiles and other applications will be highlighted.
Savio is launching the newest automatic winder Proxima Smartconer. This new machine stands for a high-tech winding, capable of adapting to demands of connectivity, Industry 4.0 and Industrial Internet of Things. Characteristics include high productivity, low energy consumption, premium yarn quality, automation, and data connectivity.
On Bejimac side, a new singeing machine for knitwear was developed focusing on high quality levels of singeing, operational flexibility and economy, as well as tension-free fabric transport through the machine. With respect to woven fabrics, the new developments made in order to substantially reduce the gas consumption while offering high intensity singeing will also be presented. For carpets, new autonomous shearing machine ATSH will be shown.
Superba, a leader in heat-setting with saturated steam under pressure thanks to the TVP3, is now offering their hot-air heat-setting solution. This triple-layer heat-setting process provides an high level of evenness and a highly homogenous fixation characteristic to the yarn, as well as stain resistance or enhanced bulk. The DHS3 line offers a high energy saving process in a reduced floor-space. To complete their range, Superba is also introducing the B403 automatic winder.
All the Vandewiele machines can be connected through cloud computing to the “TEXconnect” supervision system to comply with the Factory 4.0 concept.
Vandewiele-Savio India has its corporate office in India located at Coimbatore, with a strength of about 250 people and sales and service offices at Coimbatore, Ludhiana, Ahmedabad, Kolhapur and Thane covering the whole product range of the group.
