Garnett Controls Ltd (UK) launched their new generation retrofit control systems for textile machinery at ITMA, Spain aimed at replacing traditional inefficient drive systems with economic, easy to use, and expandable systems.

Utilising the latest in touch screen technology which Garnett pioneered in the retrofit carding sector, the new range of panels are targeted at the company’s principal area of activity, carding, spinning and nonwovens, as well as an increasingly wide spectrum of applications both inside and outside the textile sector. Reduction of energy consumption within a plant is a key attribute of the new Garnett-e- Controls system with a number of recent installations returning high savings.
