Texturing Units Temco® FTS523MD Friction texturing double unit series FTS523MD The texturing unit series FTS523MD is a motor-driven double unit for highest yarn speeds. The compact design of the FTS523MD unit makes it possible to place two texturing positions for a pitch of 110 mm. It is particularly suitable for S/Z plied yarns. Because every texturing position has its own motor drive, the yarn twist direction can be set individually. Both tops of the unit are identically to the FTS523M single unit. They are in line with the drive motors and are connected by means of a plastic coupling without intermediate drive. The shaft diameters 14.45 mm of the bearings have a high rigidity and assure, in combination with an additional damping, low vibrations at high yarn take-off speeds. The compact base plate ensures an accurate fit of the integrated high-speed bearings and ensures an exact positioning of the friction discs, which is a precondition for high yarn uniformity in the machine. The friction discs are inserted via a push fit onto the bearing shafts and are fixed by means of a spring cap with defined pressure force. This construction and the open design of the units allow fast disc change. Due to the design of the motor plate, the timing belt is protected from contamination and thus a long service life is assured. Yarn threading is made simultaneously by a mobile threading device, and as a result the units are particularly user- and maintenance friendly. Another significan advantage is the high visibility of the yarn path within the units. The units can be used for new equipment, as well as for upgrading all established high-efficiency texturing machines. When upgrading existing machines, all position including heater tracks, accommodate two yarns. This means a two-fold increase in production, because all winding positions are utilised. For new texturing machines, equipment with quadruple heaters is recommended.

Texturing Units Temco® FTS523MD Yarn tension measuring: The motor brackets oft he FTS523MD units can optionally be equipped with chute or with yarn tension sensors at every individual texturing position resp. can be converted at any time. Motor brackets: For mounting in different machine types Temco offers the corresponding bracket types.

Yarn running speeds VA [m ⋅ min-1] and disc speeds ns [min-1] in dependence on D/Y: VU = Disc circumferential speeds [m⋅min-1] VA = Thread delivery speeds [m⋅min-1] ns = Disc speeds [min-1]
