Staubli to show technical textile machinery at Techtextil
Staubli will display latest technical textile machinery at Techtextil 2019, in hall 3.0, booth B02. The company will inform visitors about the features, details, and advantages of Stäubli’s machinery, systems, and solutions for producing technical textiles. The trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens will be held from May 14-17, 2019, in Germany.
The company will display the Magma T12, the warp-tying solution for technical yarns. This tying machine processes monofilaments, coarse multi-filaments, PP tapes, bast fibres, coarse staple fibres, and many other yarn types. Staubli will also present the LXL/LXXL Jacquard machines for producing complex OPW (one-piece woven) airbags.
These machines feature lifting motions that ensure precise shedding geometry and absolutely vibration-free movement even at high speeds. The optimally coordinated kinematics of all moving parts within the machine and the directly mounted components such as the drives enable routine weaving of very heavy fabrics. The shed opening is optimised and loads on the warp threads during weft insertion are reduced. The robust construction and uncompromising use of high-quality materials guarantee the reliability and longevity of every machine, according to Staubli.
Staubli will display the TF20 weaving system for complex multi-layer fabrics. Individually configurable, this system allows the production of flat and spacer fabrics, complex and very thick and/or dense multi-layer fabrics, as well with material mix, and 3D textiles. Alpha 500 Leantec for manufacturing high-quality artificial turf will be presented, which is as specific weaving system of the Schönherr Carpet Systems product line, which enables the economical production of high-quality synthetic turf and greige woven carpets.
The list of potential applications of technical textiles seems almost endless. Engineers and research institutes regularly find new and more demanding areas in which the use of textiles can lead to technical progress, weight reduction, cost savings, or other benefits. In order to capture these advantages, the textiles must meet stringent requirements, resist mechanical forces such as compression or shear, withstand environmental conditions, or meet strict medical hygiene requirements. In addition, the fibres, yarns, and even finished fabrics are often subjected to chemical and mechanical processes during or throughout the entire textile manufacturing process. (GK)
