The several DCUs work like a well-coordinated team on the Autocoro 10. At the same time, each DCU can be precisely adjusted to the quality requirements of its lots and work areas on the Autocoro 10.
The most important task of the DCUs in the context of yarn quality assurance is to clean the rotors, both pneumatically and mechanically. In the new Autocoro 10, this is now even more efficient as a result of an innovative, patented technology. The cleaning processes are digitally controlled using state-of-the-art linear motor technology. A new movement mode for the cleaning scraper has been integrated, and the positioning of the scraper in the rotor groove is more precise and significantly more efficient thanks to an additional circuit.
This new cleaning technology loosens and removes even the most stubborn dirt and sticky residue in the rotor. The cleaning time of the rotors can now be individually adjusted on the new DCUs. All this paves the way for impeccably clean rotors, leading to a more reproducible yarn quality regardless of the fibre type. During our market launch tests, the cleaning technology proved effective for all fibres that are difficult to spin, such as recycled fibres and regenerated fibres. Our customers can now rest assured that they’ll be ready to meet the requirements of the future thanks to the new rotor cleaning system.
