GIESSE presents energy-saving spinning machines for chenille and high-bulky yarns At the booth, Luca Sostegni, President, GIESSE s.r.l., introduced two highlighted exhibits: OPTIMA eco Plus chenille yarn machine and ROTOsoft high-bulky yarn machine. OPTIMA is a spinning machine designed to produce standard and slub/flamè chenille yarns. Sostegni highlighted that the OPTIMA eco version features motorized spindles which reduce the electricity consumption of the machine up to a 40% than the standard version of the OPTIMA. The motorized spindle of the OPTIMA model - eco does not have transmission belts, idlers and bearings to transmit the motion to the spindles, so maintenance is almost close to zero in addition to having a very high precision of rotation of the spindles. On the other hand, ROTOsoft is a spinning machine built to produce high bulky yarn. The machine can work from roving to one color or two colors, thanks to the increased diameter stripping roller can treat long and short fibers with the same quality. Its individual motorized spindles allows minimum energy consumption. Sostegni said the market is changing and moving to China and India. Over the years, GIESSE has made its presence in Indonesia, Spain, Italy and Turkey. Among them, Indonesia is the biggest market for GIESSE, accounting for 30% of the sales. The company also has an agent in Shanghai, China. “We target to enter new markets in the future, such as Thailand, Vietnam, Bangladesh and Pakistan,” he pinpointed. Since Chinese customers are very price-sensitive, he said the company planned to reduce the cost of machines by assembling the machines locally. “We hope to bring more customized and innovative machines to China. We believe our innovative machines will be the first choice for the customers there,” he said. (http://www.adsale.com.hk/CTA/contents/article.aspx?id=67033219&lang=eng).
