At Techtextil 2017 in Frankfurt, Stäubli will showcase two machines that fit especially well in the production process of technical textiles in hall 3.0, booth B02. A selection of technical fabrics will also be presented, including spacers and multilayers with variable thickness that have been produced in conjunction with Stäubli products, such as TF weaving systems, dobbies, jacquard machines, warp drawing-in and tying equipment.
The Magma T12 warp tying machine will be demonstrated tying monofilaments (diameter 0.40 mm, density 7 thread/cm, 4 canisters, 140 threads each). For technical yarns, it ties monofilaments, coarse multi-filaments, PP ribbons, bast fibers, coarse staple fibers and many other fiber types. The Magna T12 has been developed for universal application ranging from coarse technical yarns to the medium yarn-count range. Its rigid design includes an optical double-end detection system.
The Unival 100 single-end control jacquard machine on exhibit offers more benefits for sophisticated technical textiles, such as automotive and aeronautic textiles, technical textiles in the sports, industrial and medical sectors, and new fabric constructions, even with glass fiber, carbon and Kevlar.
Information will be provided about the new TF weaving system providing individual system configuration and maximum flexibility. This system offers virtually unlimited weaving possibilities, whether for flat, spacer, or complex multi-layer fabrics and 3D fabrics. Featuring the latest shedding machines in combination with the double-rapier weft insertion system and a special sleying motion, this system allows high-volume production of up to very thick and/or dense fabrics and efficient processing of a wide variety of technical and highly sensitive yarns. This weaving system is available in various machinery combinations and set-ups for weaving any application and desired technical fabric.
Stäubli will also inform visitors about the Schönherr Alpha 500 Leantec weaving system that can produce superior high-quality synthetic grass and gray fabrics for printing.
