Algodonera Avellaneda has historically relied on Marzoli technology for blow room lines, draw frames, bobbin transport system, roving frames, spinning frames.
In 2015 the company decided to increase its production capacity by adding a 7th spinning module. The six spinning modules in the plant of Santa Fe comprise one BCX16 A of 120 spindles and 4 NSF3 ring spinning frames of 1,056 spindles. The seventh module comprises one FT6D roving frame of 192 spindles, five MPTN spinning frames of 1,056 spindles and Marzoli closed-loop bobbin transport system, the MTR, with a bobbin stripper integrated on the exchanger, the IBC.
The MPTN is a fully electronic spinning machine, with all technological parameters settable by touch screen. It can draw on a solid tangential belt system which can work at high speed with low energy consumption and noise.
The quality of the yarn is securely preserved through a drafting system designed to minimize vibrations and torsion forces and a reliable spindles-drive which reduces the variability of speed among spindles to almost zero.
The MTR has been designed to reduce the number of components subject to wear, the frame supports with adjustable brackets with screws allow to easily adjust the height of the rail and correct any misalignment.
Since the first quarter of 2017 Algodonera Avellaneda started upgrading its blow room line by ordering a B380L fine opener and other Marzoli’s machines for this section.
Bigger carding surfaces, a higher number of carding segments, accelerating pre-opening rollers substituting the common nipping devices are just some of the innovations introduced by Marzoli.
The B380L, unlike other openers, has two consecutive beaters surrounded by 4 carding segments followed by mote knives with adjustable flaps to undertake a progressive opening and cleaning action. This allows a more-gentle treatment but at the same time a thorough cleaning of the raw material.
The seventh spinning module installed in Algodonera Avellaneda is daily processing over 4 tons of top-quality Ne26 yarn. The spinning machines have substantially overcome the productivity of the older modules. Since start-up they have constantly reached efficiency rates over 95% while working at 16,500 rpm.
The installation of MTR allows the integration of the spinning section, thanks to a full automation and a continuous supply of roving bobbins to the spinning frames. Moreover, MTR reduced poor handling of the bobbins and allowed an overall easier management of internal logistics.
Thanks to the fine opener B3080L, it’s possible a more-gentle treatment but at the same time a thorough cleaning of the raw material. The results, for Algodonera Avellaneda, is a lower loss of good fiber and a more open and clean output which can be processed with higher quality-production results at the cards.
“Marzoli, has greatly contributed to the outstanding results that we have achieved, not only for the excellent technological level of its machines, but also by proving to be a competent and reliable partner” Mr. Fidel Roda, explains.
