Germany-based Trützschler will open a textile machinery plant in Shanghai at the beginning of
October, and will supply the first Trützschler machines manufactured in China. Trützschler will
have more information about the new plant opening at the China International Textile Exhibition
(CITME) 2002, October 15-19 in Peking. The company will showcase at CITME the High Production Card
DK 903 with integrated draw frame, as well as the High Performance Draw Frame HSR 1000. Also on
display will be its Webfeed system, a feature of the DK 903. The system features 3 lickers-in and
guarantees high-volume production, high quality and maximum fiber protection, resulting in a card
sliver of extreme evenness, according to Trützschler.
