Allma TC2 - Opening up new markets for technical yarns
The new two-for-one twisting machine Allma TC2 is characterized by its worldwide unique productivity of up to 450 m/min delivery speed, previously not achieved on the market. The machine concept offers ultimate flexibility in production, material and yarn counts. The Allma TC2 features a totally newly developed spindle concept allowing for individual settings for each individual spindle. Customers can thus quickly react to market requirements and even the smallest lots or samples can be economically produced. Fine and coarse material such as PES, PA, CV, AR, PP and PE can be processed on Allma TC2 in a broad yarn count range, offering customers new yarn constructions and product possibilities.
In addition, the new Allma PrimePac twist packages provide up to 25 percent higher packages density compared to packages wound on other twisting machines. Customers
can count on better unwinding properties, longer lengths for further processing and reduction of work involved in packaging.
Allma CC4 - The energy-saving miracle
The award-winning direct cabling machine Allma CC4 is revolutionizing the tire cord cabling market with energy savings of up to 50 percent. For manufacturers, these are great cost savings in production. Further advantages of Allma CC4 include up to 50 percent fewer thread breaks and a considerably reduced noise level.
In addition, Allma engineers have now developed an energy-saving retrofit package for the Allma CC3 for existing machines. With an easy to install conversion unit the cabling machines can be set to energy-save modus, thus allowing customers to reduce costs enormously.
Allma CC3-Combi - Ultimate flexibility
With the Allma CC3-Combi, tire cord, cap ply, chafer or other technical yarns can be cabled or twisted as required. The Allma CC3-Combi uniquely meets the needs of the entire tire cord market with a universal machine. Using combined spindles the machine can be employed not only for cabling but also for two-for-one twisting and can be specially adapted to the production plan and customer requirements. Changing to the other production process requires just a few easy steps. The take-up speed of 120m/min also guarantees maximum productivity for the two-for-one process.
