Turkey is ranked in the top five export markets of Savio, so the attendance at ITM exhibition is meant at massive level for being closer to these important customers who may be interested in the most advanced and automated Savio models, for either greenfield or expansion projects.
Savio is represented in Turkey by Motex/Modiano, one of the oldest agency operating in this field for more than 40 years. Motex/Modiano structure has been strengthened by the creation of Modiano Teknik Hizmetler for providing the customers with efficient After-sales assistance. This company carries out the assembling and the technical assistance also provides the customers with spare parts on immediate delivery from the warehouses in Istanbul, Bursa and Gaziantep.
Savio showcased three machines in Istanbul: Polar/I automatic link winder and two Sirius machines equipped with different technologies. In addition to standard configuration, Sirius can be equipped with the new Twist&Twist device that makes it possible "two twisting operations", instead of the usual single. The T&T solution is expected to opens new possibilities in this sector, which seemed to be inexorably bound to the Two-for-One (single twist) parameters. This innovative technology allows an increase of process productivity of 33%, with the same energy consumption as the standard double twist spindle. The system generates a twisted yarn through two yarn balloons, one external with "S" twist direction, and one internal with "Z" twist direction, a differential speed motor bearing, consequently generates a triple twist at each spindle turn.
The whole device is designed and patented by Savio. The increase in productivity automatically leads to a corresponding reduction of number of the twisting spindles and, therefore, of plant dimension, with savings of noise, space, conditioning and lighting costs.
The process cost of the twisting is basically cost of investment and cost of electrical energy, and both represent a value of about 90% of the total process costs. In the case of the T&T spindle, cost-effectiveness of the twisting system is clear, if one considers that with 25% less spindles the same production is achieved, with a cost per kg of twisted yarn inferior to the conventional 2x1 technology process. The return of investment varies from country to country, based largely on local energy costs.
