SSM Textile Machinery exhibited successfully at eight exhibitions in the first four months of 2018, presenting its latest solutions for yarn processing and winding in Colombia, Bangladesh, Japan, Russia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Turkey and Pakistan.

The biggest appearance of SSM was at the ITM trade fair for textile machinery, which took place in Istanbul, last month. At the exhibition, the company combined the sample bobbins and textile (made on the TG30-ETC) with the winding and yarn process machines, such as DP5-T, for creating slubs and neps, the XENO-AC for air covered yarns or the XENO winding and doubling machines, including DIGICONE 2 for higher dyeable package densities. On display was also the PWX-MTC, SSM’s latest machine for rewinding of highly elastic yarns on muffs or hanks.

The exhibitions in Colombia, Bangladesh, Russia, Indonesia and Pakistan took place on joint booths of the SSM representatives. “During the shows, SSM met many existing, and also potential new customers that showed interest in their products. Thanks to the great effort and support of the SSM agents the exhibitions have been a great success,” the company comments.

“For Japan Yarn Fair and Saigontex, SSM had its own booth with the kind support of its local representatives. There, the main focus was given to the high range of possibilities SSM customers could profit. With final packages, wound on SSM machines, as well as knitted textile samples the visitors could feel the difference.”
