The highly developed know-how in recycling processing and a high-tech machine park, from fibre processing, through spinning to knitting, these are the key factors for the success of Giotex. In the spinning mill, Giotex produces both ring and rotor yarns from recycled fibres. The Autocoro rotor-spinning machines installed there are tailor-made for the Giotex corporate philosophy. The individual assignment of the spinning positions with the differently sized and coloured lots, the flowing changes of the lots during running production, without waiting times and manual intervention, thus ensuring profitability for every lot size.
Silvia Lopez, Public Relations Manager, adds: “Autocoro has been a key addition to our sustainability strategy. Rotor spinning is more energy efficient with Autocoro than with our older rotor-spinning machines; this is a milestone, since yarn production takes up the lion’s share of the energy requirements of textile production. Therefore Autocoro makes an important contribution to our 160 million kWh annual savings.”
