There was no reason to get nervous over this, however. After all, Spinit 3.0 E has plenty to offer. There are benefits in terms of production time and investment costs. Its energy balance is lower by a third than that of the conventional production process. “Since we have presented the prototype in Barcelona, Spinit has been widely talked about,” says Michael A. Tuschak. “Since then, we have been working towards the machine’s series production, gradually and systematically. So visitors always seize the opportunity to see how we are getting along.”
This time in Mumbai, Mayer & Cie. came up with Fancy Module, an optional patterning attachment. It allows clients to produce what MCT calls Spinit Fancy Jersey. Its pattern stands out because of its soft transitions. As the pattern is produced by changing the yarn gauge, opaque and transparent pattern areas alternate freely.
On its way to series production, the spinning and knitting machine Spinit 3.0 E experienced further tailwind in Mumbai. Michael A. Tuschak talked to many prospective customers and he is confident that from those conversations some more project partnerships will arise. The more diverse the applications tested and the clients’ perspectives, the more diverse and valuable the feedback will be. “A fully integrated manufacturer’s focus differs from that of a spinning mill with forward integration. One client specialises on fine underwear using mostly cotton while another is into fashionable outer wear,” says the man in charge of marketing and sales of Spinit 3.0 E. Once the pilot customers’ feedback will have proven satisfactory to Mayer & Cie., they will start series production. Tuschak concludes: “The Spinit’s proper production line is already there – we are good to go.”
