Founded in 1971, Özdilek Holding began its production in the textile sector in 1971. Özdilek Holding, which started production in Bursa, with two weaving machines, 5 employees and annual 10 tons of towel production, today continues to operate in 122,000 square meters closed area facilities. The holding produces 14,000 tons of cotton yarn, 10,000 tons of towels and bathrobes and 18,000,000 meters of home textiles per year.
Özdilek Home Textile, with fully integrated production facilities; is the highest capacity producer and exporter in Europe, North America and the Middle East. Company is among the world’s leading manufacturers with a quality – oriented production concept in its cotton yarn, towel weaving, towel dyeing, towel garments, dye printing and bedding –linen garment facilities.
A TECHNOLOGY ARISING FROM NECESSITY: PROSPIN
Spinning factories started looking for new ways because of the challenging market conditions and the increasing competition. In this context, Özdilek turned to R & D activities and established a multidisciplinary R & D team specialized in yarn production. After 5-year of academically supported detailed studies of the R & D team; the ProSPIN system which owns an international patent and started a new era in ring spinning, was completed. Being able to be integrated to the existing ring spinning machines easily and quickly, the ProSPIN technology enables producing prominently high quality yarn on these machines and started to be utilized on all production facilities of Özdilek as of 2012. Özdilek achieved an increase of at least 10% in yarn production, thanks to the ProSPIN modification it developed and increased the performance of weaving, knitting, dying, finishing and printing processes with the quality yarn it produces.
Özdilek R & D team transformed the ProSPIN system into a completely reliable and user friendly system, performing all the enhancement processes in the last 6 years. As a result, the ProSPIN system was released on the market commercially as of 2018.
RING MACHINES CAN BE MODIFIED BY PROSPIN
ProSPIN technology is based on bifurcation of a roving, feeded into a unit installed on a ring yarn machine, by means of a compactor at the outlet of drawing system and confluence of two groups of fiber compactly flowing out in two lines in a manner to form the yarn by taking the twist originating from ring – ring traveller system. Regardless of the fact that it has characteristics similar to compact spinning, in terms of yarn characteristics obtained and facilities provided, ProSPIN system involves outstanding distinctions and additional advantages. ProSPIN system is designed for the production of Carded and Combed yarns within the range of medium and medium – corse counts, not fully included by the existing compact yarn spinning systems. Compaction of masses (especially Carded) containing fibers exceeding a certain number in the cross – section by using the existing compact spinning systems, fails to achieve the required success due to either geometrical reasons or excessive consumption of air. ProSPIN, eliminates such dissatisfaction by bisecting the fiber mass in a controlled manner followed by a seperate compaction.
In the ProSPIN system, as distinct from most commonly used compact spinning systems, compaction of fiber mass is done without the need of air suction. This, all by itself, provides advantage in spinning cost. Due to restriction of roving traverse movement, top rollers swiftly erode in all compact spinning systems. By means of two step belt encapsulation equipment installed, ProSPIN system enables elimination of erosion of drawing system front top roller. This apron covering is sufficient to maintain the yarn quality for an extended period of time.
Modification of current ring spinning machinery by means of ProSPIN system can be done more simply and quickly compared to all other modified compact spinning systems. Elements such as additional output shaft, suction equipment (motor, suction hoses, slotted suction profiles) which are required for currently existing most common modified compact system, are not required.
