Autocoro – the recycling all-rounder for every purpose

With its recycling solutions, the Saurer Autocoro continues to prove that its concept is one step ahead: the spinning process is the most important part of the material recycling production chain. Major yarn characteristics, which have a significant influence on the quality, look and feel of the end textile, are determined during this vital step. When the use of recycled material for the end textile is a customer requirement, a recycling-optimised spinning machine is up to the task. Our Autocoro can fulfil this requirement and offers several solutions for the procduction of recycling yarn. The result: perfect textiles of excellent quality made with recycled material.

Important machine features for recycling yarn

High efficiency with highest speeds for all kinds of fibres

  • Spindle efficiency visualiser: recognises spinning positions with a reduced productivity due to raw material with a lower quality
  • VTC Vacuum trash cleaner: removes waste particles and fibre fly from recycling material
  • SynchroPiecing 36: ensures that there is always enough piecing capacity, also by spinning difficult material with higher yarn break potential such as recycled material
  • Exchangeable fiber beard support: ensures that short fibres are also included in the spinning process, resulting in a higher utilisation of these fibres
  • Corolab XQ/XF: guarantees the expected yarn quality, no matter the raw material
  • PilotSpin: allows you to conduct yarn trials with recycled material during the ongoing production

Else Tekstil - new recycling production line paves the way to sustainability

In 2018, the business overhauled its plant to create an ultra-modern production platform for regenerated fibres and yarns, becoming one of Turkey’s biggest producers of recycled goods. By recycling textile waste from Turkey and elsewhere under its own yarn brand, Bornewa, the company is actively helping to protect the environment and makes a major contribution to sustainability and eco-friendly production.

At the plant, textile scraps from around the world are separated and stored by colour, sorted according to orders and then processed into fibres in the separator. Using Saurer BD 7 machines and the Autocoro 9, yarns are produced from the regenerated fibres with different proportions of cotton and polyester as well as yarn counts from Ne 4 to Ne 36.

"To ensure our customers receive a swift service with all manner of colour and mixing options, our warehouse is stocked full of all colours imaginable. With the amazing flexibility of the Autocoro, we are always able to fulfil our customers’ needs and demands on time and with the expected quality. Rotor-spinning machines from Saurer allow us to make package samples by using PilotSpin and to produce several lots at the same time by using MultiLot," says Eşref Koçak, Board member, Else Tekstil Tic. A.Ş.
