German weaving technologies producer Lindauer Dornier GmbH will display comprehensive and sustainable technologies at ITMA 2015, which find applications in home textiles, clothing and technical textiles.

“The highlight of the Dornier stand is a new generation of rapier weaving machines - the P2, that will be revealed to the public for the first time,” a press release from the company informed.

One of the exhibits is the Dornier rapier weaving machine, the P2 TGP 6/S G type, with a nominal width of 320 cm, which is a further development of the P1, with positive controlled center transfer.

At the ITMA stand, this machine will produce a high density filter fabric in super heavy design with a nominal width of 320 cm and two warp beams.

The extremely high density is achieved by a specially developed cloth take-up, an absolute uniformity of the filling density and a reed impact force of 5 tons.

“Such a high reed impact force requires regulating the warp tensions with the warp let-off and cloth take-up at a constant value,” it said.

Another machine on display is the P1 PTS 8S C20, a rapier weaving machine with a nominal width of 190 cm and is best suitable for upholstery fabrics

According to Dornier, the rapier weaving machine the latest version of P1 produces a sophisticated functional fabric out of different materials like upholstery fabrics for office chairs.

Monofilaments and different flock yarns are used in the filling, while the colour of the fabric can be chosen individually and elastic material of high quality can only be woven using a very precise warp regulation.

The company is also showing another rapier weaving machine, the P1 PTS 16/S C with a nominal width of 190 cm and is suitable for ladies wear.

The fabric can be woven with 16 filling colours and different materials at up to 600 fillings per minute through a filling insertion with positive controlled center transfer, ensuring a reliable insertion of different filling yarns.

Also on show is the air-jet weaving machine A1 AWS 6/S G16 with a nominal width of 210 cm and can produce suit fabrics out of worsted yarn with high productivity.

High productivity is ensured through its gentle filling insertion in combination with the automatic filling break repair and attains speeds of more than 1,000 picks per minute in industrial applications.

The newly developed nozzle concept accelerates the filling thread gently and inserts therefore sensitive yarns even more smoothly and due to the SyncroDrive, vibrations in the shedding motion are further reduced.

Other machines on display include the P1 PTS 8/J G with a nominal width of 260 cm in combination with a Jacquard machine Bonas Si for weaving carpet fabrics and gobelin alternately.

The air-jet weaving machine A1 AWS 4/J G with a nominal width of 280 cm in combination with a Jacquard Stäubli LXL is suitable for airbags. (AR)
