SSM Precision package winder for technical yarns

The unique characteristics of tailor-made high-performance yarns is helping such yarns to substitute other classic materials in a large range of applications, thereby continually increasing the usage of technical textiles and consequently their consumption. Despite this overall positive scenario, production lot sizes can vary greatly; from large ones for standard yarns to small ones for specialties, managing such variances poses a challenge for any producer.


The Duro-TW precision winder for all technical yarns up to 50,000 dtex was developed by SSM Schärer Schweiter Mettler AG, Horgen/Switzerland, and offers a very high flexibility and winding quality in one machine. The Duro-TD assembly winder allows the plying of multiple ends/yarns. Optional intermingling guarantees loop-free twists as well as optimal unwinding during twisting. The ability to run closed precision winding enables higher package densities, thereby increasing the knot-free length.
