In Pakistan Spinning Industries Shifted to Spindle Tape from Cotton Tape. It has been a effort several years back by our Parent Company. Holland Machinery Stores has worked as Forbo-Siegling distributor in Pakistan for many years, and has been World’s Top Distributor giving highest sales. HMS replaced cotton tapes to Synthetic Spindle Tape in Textile Spinning Industry.
Reasons of Spinning Industries shifting to Spindle Tape
Spindle Tape was designed later but cotton tapes were used in late past. The major reason for a step in Spinning Industries Shifting to Spindle Tape was the Stitched Joints of Cotton tape, Joint failure, elongation of cotton tape, variation in thread strength, production loss and many others. These factors made Belting manufacturers to realize the need of time to create something that can run on high speed, doesn’t increase its length and of course belt joint is 100% satisfactory.
HMS mainly focused Power Transmission Belts, Flat Belts, Leather Belts, Food Processing Conveyor Belts, PVC Belts, Rubber Conveyor, V-Belts, Timing Belts and similar belting kinds. As it was launched by Siegling, HMS imported limited stock and started to market it in Spinning. Mr. Amjad Hussain was the man to market this new technology (he is also the very first man in Pakistan who had necessity belt skills training from Siegling in Hannover-Germany).
HMS had many seminars specially in National Textile University Faisalabad. This new technological improvement of that time was costly enough and it took long time to get first order. The first order was of 1 spindle tape belt that runs 04 spindles of ring frame.
After successful installation of Siegling Spindle Tape, the wait for analyzing results started and ended with Outstanding results of increased monthly production by time save, Thread strength because of consistent speed, same production quality because of no breaks due to belts. It pleased General Manager and HMS was ordered to replace all spindle in one go.
The minimum spindles for spinning industry to meet its routine expenses and give minor profit to M.D is 14400 spindles, If we consider this as that mills spindles that means 14400/04=3600 Spindle tape belts. It took approx one week for order completion.
This has been a great reference for other industries and every industry started giving orders. 95-98% Textile Spinning Industries were installed and remaining 02-05% ordered to Korean & Chinese manufacturers for less pricing, still those belts were also installed by HMS. It was a great achievement to HMS, parent of AT. You can ask us to buy Belt tools as Skiver, Hot Press, Jointing adhesive, or Spindle tape rolls.
