Here are the key points about ROBOspin:

  • Function: It automatically repairs yarn breaks (also known as “ends down”) that occur during the spinning process, both while the machine is running and during doffing (removing full bobbins).
  • Benefits:
    • Increased productivity: Operates 24/7, maintaining consistent machine performance and reducing downtime due to yarn breaks.
    • Reduced labor costs: Lowers manpower requirements by up to 50% as it efficiently handles piecing tasks previously done by human workers.
    • High piecing efficiency: Achieves up to 95% success rate in repairing yarn breaks, minimizing production losses.
    • Preserved yarn quality: Minimal contact between the robot and yarn ensures the yarn maintains its high quality.

Uğurlular, known for its commitment to innovation and technology integration, views this investment as a strategic step towards a successful future. Their sizeable order reflects the growing adoption of ROBOspin by spinning mills worldwide, signifying the transformative potential of automation in the textile industry.
