All about the energy-saving revolution Allma CC4 at the Tire Technology Expo 2012
The world of cabling technology has been revolutionized by the innovative Allma CC4, the status quo called into question when it is shown how little energy is needed in future for the cabling process. Allma CC4 is a milestone in efficient production of high quality tire cord and for this reason in February 2011 was already awarded the much sought after “Award for Innovation and Excellence”.
The cabling revolution with 50% less energy consumption and yarn breaks
Investigations carried out by our customers have proved that up to 80% twisting cost can be attributed to energy consumption in the cabling process. Through smart intervention in the process, Allma engineers have been able to successfully reduce the energy consumption of the machine by up to 50%.
Analogous to the reduced power consumption of the machine is also the decrease in the costs of air-conditioning technology. Another achievement of the new technology is a further increase in quality and the increment in machine efficiency through a yarn breakage rate now reduced by up to 50%. The slim yarn balloon substantially lowers noise levels in the production hall and provides a pleasant working climate. Systems already installed underline the success of Allma CC4. Customers are producing top quality tire cord at unbeatable competitive prices.
Now available: Allma CC3 energy-saver retrofit pack
In order to support customers in the battle against constantly rising energy costs and to meet their wishes for innovative product solutions, Allma engineers have now developed a retrofit pack for the Allma CC3 for existing machines. With an easy to install conversion unit the cabling spindles can be set to energy-save modus. Customers are able to reduce costs enormously and to increase the quality of their products.
The Allma trade fair team is looking forward to presenting customers and interested visitors all the information on the latest innovations from the world of twisting and cabling technology. The current focus is clearly on energy saving and also the latest advances and trends in the production of high quality tire cord and industrial yarns.
