Textile machinery manufacturing major Lakshmi Machine Works (LMW) has introduced a compact spinning system.

“This system has helped us set new standards in compact spinning technology and improve the efficiency of looms by 10 per cent,” said M. Sankar, Vice President - SMG, LMW.

“Customers’ needs have become more explicit on yarn quality requirements to meet the end-users’ demands. Compacting or condensing minimises the width and height of the spinning triangle. Fibres align more uniformly with less hairiness and uniform twist flows,” he explained.

Answering a query, Sankar said: ‘The user industry has been managing with retrofit spinning. This new compact spinning system can be fitted to the existing machines as also new ones. It would cost Rs 1,300 more per spindle.” The monthly rollout of the compact spinning system is estimated at 60,000 to 70,000 units.

LMW used the TexFair 2013 platform to formally introduce the compact spinning system.

“We are rolling out close to 2 to 2.5 lakh spindles every month at present. The market is showing signs of improvement. With the textile sector upbeat about growth prospects, the demand is bound to go up,” he said.
