Proxima Smartconer® has been designed with the foremost attention to the customer’s needs in the optimal utilization of a winding machine. Investing in equipment that enables to work faster and reduces manual and repetitive tasks, can increase both efficiencies and overall productivity. The same applies to a new equipment that does more of what is needed, faster, safer, with better quality but with less waste, less maintenance, and less resource usage.


Savio’s new air-jet spinning machine: LYBRA Smartspinner®

With Lybra Smartspinner®, we spin different with a versatile and smart machine. Savio’s air-jet spinning machine has been developed with an original spinning technology to serve our customers in specific applications of textile production: knitting, home textiles, sunshades. Air-jet spun yarn has a soft and smooth character, perfectly adapting to creating functional & fashionable fabrics.

With LYBRA Smartspinner®, we want to offer our customer a versatile, flexible, cost saving and easy-to-use machine. Air-jet spinning offers to yarn manufacturers the opportunity to produce yarn at high production rates and low processing costs. The air-jet spinning technology use the same preparation of the conventional ring spinning. This processing works directly with slivers instead of roving, integrating three textile processes: roving, spinning & winding.

Space needs for air-jet spinning is 25-30% less than for ring-spinning equipment producing the same capacity, thereby reducing building costs. Also, a smaller area requires less climate control and reduced operating personnel. This results in further substantial savings, maximizing the return on investment.



as the market leader, continues to build on the success of innovations in Jacquard technology.

Our way to the perfect fabric - We are the leader in developing Weft Feeders for the textile industry

Setting a new standard with GENERATION 4 Weft Feeders

Presenting the new X4 Weft Feeders with ”integrated accessory display” setting a new feeder standard. The current settings and any alarms can be easily monitored using the integrated display – with any required changes being easily made using the adjustment knob.

X4 Weft Feeders

X4 feeders are available in three different versions – (i) with integrated Tension Display (TED), (ii) with integrated Active Tension Control (ATC) and (iii) with Rapid Tension Control (RTC).

Standard with TED – Tension Display that makes it possible to reproduce weft tension settings from one machine to another. Enabling a fast start-up the next time the same article is woven. The position of the S-Flex Tensioner is constantly being monitored by an internal sensor – even if adjustment is made during power off.

With the optional ATC-W Active Tension Control the required tension is easily set and monitored on the integrated display. Once set, the system constantly regulates itself ensuring consistent yarn tension during the weaving process. The yarn tension is constantly and accurately measured by the ATC sensor unit, sending a signal to the ATC operator unit resulting in consistently stable yarn tension at the required level.

With the optional RTC Rapid Tension Control, a fast reacting, programmable weft tensioner system. The major advantage is that there is only one setting for the weft tension.

IRO ROJ Chrono X4

ZTF – Carbon and tape yarn without any twist.

The Zero Twist Feeder (ZTF) keeps the yarn constantly stretched to avoid the risk of any snarls or twisting of the tape. The Zero Twist Feeder is supplied as either a single channel unit, or as a weft mixing version. – welcome to our digital tool

MEMMINGER-IRO GMBH is the world market leader in the development, production and sale of yarn feeders, monitoring and lubrication systems for knitting machines.

Among other products, MEMMINGER-IRO will present the following latest developments


Storage feeder K52 / K52 ATC

K 52 is the latest generation of high tech storage feeders, equipped with a CAN BUS communication and focussed on functionality, easy maintenance and simple operation. Highlights are the new developed spiral output brake for finer and even adjustment of yarn output tension, integrated yarn consumption measurement and automatic determination of the quickest possible stopping time in case of yarn breakage (“Fast stop”).

K52 ATC is equipped with an Active Tension Control system, which ensures that the yarn output tension remains constant at the preset value, independent from external factors like size of the bobbins or quality of the yarn.


The MEMMINGER-IRO Communication Interface MCI is designed to control Storage feeders, tension-controlled feeders, motor drive systems and quality control devices produced by Memminger-Iro. This latest generation is webserver based. It is possible to operate one machine or several machines via one panel. With the MCI the knitter gets the maximum flexibility according to its demand.



The storage feeder SFE 2 is an economical version of storage feeders which includes all state of the art functionalities such as adjustable yarn input tensioner, yarn separation and stepless adjustable yarn output tension. It is designed to offer an economic solution for knitters with reduced investment costs.

The servo motors of MRA 4 completely replaces the quality adjustment pulley assembly. This results to receive a constant, precise stitch length and therefore an improved fabric quality. Article reproducibility is more accurate. The technical parameters of the motors are adapted to the trend of faster circular knitting machines with more feeders. The system as such is more economic which results in a much shorter Return on investment.
