SUPERBA emphasizes Industry 4.0 concept


SUPERBA is a member of the Vandewielde Group which offers innovative textile systems for flooring production. The company is a leading solution provider in continuous heat setting, texturizing and space dyeing processes. It is expanding its area of applications and helps its customers adopting the Industry 4.0 concept.


The new SUPERBA B403 automatic winder with its individual spindle motorization drive, combined with a single tension sensor per position, enables a constant tension winding process, a very accurate bobbin length measuring as well as a unique quality control for each yarn position.

Thanks to the individual motors, the stopping time is drastically decreased (down to 1 second), thus enabling the yarn bundle to remain thread-up in the guides and to significantly decrease the downtime in case of a yarn break for a higher efficiency.

Connected through cloud computing to the new VANDEWIELE TEXCONNECT supervision system, the B403 can provide full tension reports in the cloud.
