Bonas
(Hall 3, Booth 01)
Bonas of the Vandewiele Group will introduce the ‘Ji’ range of jacquard machines, which are available in formats from 1,920 to 5,760 hooks and are the most compact machines on the market. The ‘Ji’ is designed in Europe with the focus on the Chinese market where higher productivity requirements are requested to create a high added value.

The Ji is maintenance free and equipped with the latest filter technology
Three types will be demonstrated to show their wide range of applications. The first jacquard with 4,800 hooks will be installed on a double-width loom weaving a furniture fabric. The second ‘Ji’ jacquard with 2,688 hooks will be on loom producing terry towels. The third ‘Ji’ with 2,304 hooks will be producing high-quality labels.

All machines will be linked to the new ‘Ci’ Bonas controller. The Bonas jacquards on exhibit will be equipped with in-house designed and produced harnesses.

Dornier
(Hall 3, Booth F01)
Lindauer Dornier GmbH will present market-leading machine concepts for the production of highly sophisticated fabrics.

Under the motto “The Green Machine”, the family company, which manufactures its machines exclusively in Germany, will present as a focal point comprehensive solutions for “green technologies”. This stands not only for the noted green color of Dornier looms but also the “sustainable effect” of fabrics produced on these machines. These fabrics are of decisive importance for “green technologies” in many branches: Whether finest filters for purifying water or air, airbags and antiballistic structures to protect against injuries or death, composites made of glass or carbon fibers to reduce moved masses and CO2 emission. In all these sectors, Dornier “Green Machines” have long been indispensable for manufacturing customized precision fabrics in the respective application areas.

Apart from the production of textile fabrics, Dornier will focus on weaving high-quality materials for clothing. Chinese and Asian textile manufacturers will also be able to see how they can manufacture reliable prime quality, combined with high productivity, in the fast growing apparel market segment. Dornier looms exhibit unique performance and process reliability, especially in these production segments with the highest demands on the fabrics. This results from significant exchanges of ideas with customers, the imagination of Dornier engineers as well as the quality of production in Germany.

After presenting the rapier loom P2 type TGS at the ITMA 2015 in Milan, Dornier will now present a further new type of rapier loom at ITMA ASIA+CITME 2016 for the first time. The new P2 type TGV combines the reliability of the previous P1 PTV model with the future-oriented modular P2 machine concept.

Dornier will show an air-jet weaving machine of the latest generation A1 type AWS. An air-jet loom equipped with a jacquard can be seen on Stäubli’s booth.
Both of these machines will prove their performance capability through the production of especially demanding fabrics in compliance with Dornier’s basic principle “Quality creates value”.
