American subsidiary of Lindauer Dornier turns 40
The American Dornier Machinery Corporation (AmDO) has completed 40 years in the industry, providing first class service to the textile and plastics industry. The American subsidiary of Lindauer Dornier has more than 240 customers and has delivered 8,500 weaving machines. Lindauer Dornier GmbH is Germany’s leading textile machinery developer.
In the 1980s, when production of film for food packaging, video cassettes, and photographic film started to boom, Dornier was shipping dozens of film stretching lines across the Atlantic. Ever since then, AmDO ensured regular servicing of the up to 2,600 roller bearing clips on these film stretching lines, which transport the film through these gigantic machines, which can be up to 150 metres long.
Nowadays, about 80 per cent of Dornier weaving machines are in service producing technical fabrics such as airbags, high-tech sun protection fabrics, carbon and glass fabrics, filters, and tire cord. High quality upholstery fabrics with value added properties are also made on Dornier weaving machines. (GK)
