France is the sixth exporter of textile machinery worldwide and Turkey is its second most important market. ITM is the leading textile machinery fair in Turkey.

Hubert TRETSCH (Superba’s marketing manager), President of the Promotion Committee of the French Textile Machinery Manufacturers’ Association (UCMTF), will be at ITM Istanbul June 1-4.

He states, “Our tradition of R&D associated with our long term partnerships with our clients explains why France is exporting around one billion Euros worth of textile machinery each year.” Even though there are many opportunities to meet the Turkish customers on their own premises or at such fair as ITMAs, he considers ITM a major opportunity. “ITM is a major regional event and we look forward to meet there our long time customers as well as new ones from Turkey and surrounding countries. Our clients and we share the same goal: be reliable long term partners for our customers. We are not looking for short term profits but to make our companies stronger and stronger to seize the markets opportunities and be able to absorb the difficult years. We are mainly SME’s, often family owned, leaders or co-leaders in their markets. This why we understand each other so well with our Turkish customers who are real entrepreneurs”.

At ITM, the textile and carpet industrialists will be shown the latest technical innovations by the French teams. The stability of these teams allows them to go well beyond the purely technical and address the long term objectives of their customers.

NSC Fibre To Yarn

NSC Fibre To Yarn continues to develop and propose Tow To Top lines with the model S200 of stretch breaker followed by the new model of defelter rebreaker model D5GC40 and GC40 chain gill. As finisher m/c, the FMV41/42 vertical rubbing frame takes place.

Recently, NSC Fibre To Yarn has installed semi-worsted lines with SW35 carding m/c (2.5 m or 3.5 m wide), manufactured by N. Schlumberger followed by preparation lines consisting of chain gills model GC 40 and finishers m/c model FMV41/42.

New: NSC offers to modernise recycling lines for acrylic fibres or blended ones by introducing its well-known combing ERA between card and gills. The contribution of the combing ERA is economically essential according to four points of view:

* production: 1 ton per day in three deniers (three shifts).
* cleanliness: 25 per cent of neps less compared with PB family m/c.
* energy consummation: equipment with economic motors.
* reduced consummation of spare parts owing to a new design of kinematic.

NSC Fibre to Yarn is honoured to have numerous Turkish customers with whom the machinery manufacturer can improve the machines and adapt them to each customer’s needs. In order to give the best service in Turkey, an organisation of a spare parts have been set up in Gaziantep with the BILGE/Automation company.

A worldwide leader in air engineering for all textile production processes for natural fibres as well as for man made fibres in all different stages: spinning, knitting, weaving, hosiery, nonwovens, dyeing and finishing. The company is specialised in air-conditioning and waste collection systems for textile factories.

The overall energy saving is becoming a competitiveness factor. The AESA air conditioning plants are contributing in a big way to this goal. For spinning factories, the state of the art is to drive all fans and pumps motors through inverters. For weavings, the latest development called WEAVE DIRECT is capable to reach up to 50 per cent energy savings. This is possible thanks to a dedicated supply air ducting system where unique and localised WDB type diffusers are placed above each loom. Like this the moisture needed for a good output is conveyed in the right quantity to the right place above the loom, and the overall air requirement can be reduced drastically.

Last but not least, the DIGIVENT control system, with latest AESA logic is capable to have even more stable room condition between running and not running high speed machines.

This achievement is possible with AESA’s more than 50 years of experience in this specialised field and is assuring better productivity to AESA’s clients and better yarn and fabric quality to the end user. AESA recognises Turkey as a major market and a special organisation has been set up to give the Turkish market the best service: agent, direct office, etc…aftersales: AESA has a liaison office in Turkey, and Ikiler Tekstil has been the agent for the last several years.
