Success story of TeraSpin spindles with Smart Yarn Catcher

TeraSpin spindles with SYC is outperforming their expectations as well as the other set of spindles they had purchased.

Arunachala Gounder Textile Mills (AGT Mills) has multiple spinning units with a total installed capacity of 50,000+ spindles & 950 vortex air-jet spinning drums. They manufacture approx. 1500 tons of high quality yarn such as 100 per cent viscose ring spun, compact & vortex yarn, and 100 per cent modal yarn monthly. With a focus on consistent growth, they have continuously invested in new products and capacity expansion. Their product range today includes fibre, yarn and fabrics.

Challenges

Arunachala Gounder already had ring frames with auto-doffers, but to further improve their spinning productivity, were looking for a solution that could reduce the hard waste and maintenance time without any speed reduction. Post careful diligence, they decided to choose one set of spindles from the competition and another set of spindles from TeraSpin with its patented Smart Yarn Catcher (SYC) device for a comparative performance evaluation.

Result

After a series of studies done to evaluate the performance of yarn catchers, the customer was delighted to find that the TeraSpin spindles with SYC is outperforming their expectations as well as the other set of spindles they had purchased.
