Zinser receives orders for new compact spinning plant to be built by Culimeta-Saveguard
Back in 1781, the first steam-driven cotton spinning mill was opened in Manchester which later became the capital of cotton textile manufacturing. Around 80% of the world's production came from Manchester, which bore the nickname "Cottonopolis". The sector began to decline in the 20th century and the last British cotton spinning mill closed its doors for good in Greater Manchester in the 1980s. Now, 30 years later cotton spinning is coming back home.
Culimeta-Saveguard, a UK company is opening one of the most modern cotton spinning mill in the historic buildings of the former Tower Mill in Dukinfield in Tameside, Greater Manchester. The company is investing almost 6 million British pounds, in order to be able to produce premium yarns for exclusive UK companies. The raw material- cotton is being imported from Barbados, India, Egypt and the USA.
The modern machinery for the planned spinning mill comes from Saurer Zinser in Germany. Culimeta-Saveguard has ordered Zinser 351 2Impact FX compact spinning machines from the traditional German manufacturer. Ultra-fine combed cotton compact yarn in counts from Ne 60 upwards will be spun on the machines. The roving is delivered by the roving frame Zinser 670. The Saurer Schlafhorst Autoconer 6 is being used as the winding machine. Culimeta-Saveguard decided on Zinser in order to be sure of meeting the high quality requirements of its exclusive customers. The modern Zinser ring spinning machines are the first choice for the production of ultra-fine, combed and compacted cotton yarn. The Zinser 351 2Impact FX is fitted with an Impact FX self-cleaning compact unit. This compact spinning technology ensures ultimate process reliability that delivers superior quality and high cost effectiveness.
The order brings great excitement at Saurer Zinser as this has an emotional quotient attached to it. "We are proud that ring spinning machines from Zinser are being installed in the first new cotton spinning plant to be erected in England," says Burcu Sevinis, Product Manager at Saurer Zinser. "The cotton spinning mill is coming home and Zinser will be there."
