Starlinger to unveil 8-shuttle circular loom at Chinaplas

For a long while it was rather quiet around looms for FIBC fabric. Now the time has come for something new in this area: With the 8-shuttle circular loom RX 8.0 Starlinger & Co. GmbH is raising the bar. It will be presented for the first time at this year's Chinaplas in Guangzhou, taking place from May 20-23, 2013.

The next generation of heavy duty fabric looms

An operator-friendly loom that produces high-quality tape fabric for heavy-duty applications has low maintenance and spare part requirements and is cost-efficient - these were the set targets in the development of the RX 8.0 loom.

Based on the well-proven Starlinger SL and alpha loom concepts, the new 8-shuttle loom ensures high-quality output, easy handling and smooth operation due to electronically controlled settings and well-engineered technical features. The use of new materials reduces strain and friction on the tapes and increases the lifetime of wear and tear parts, keeping maintenance and spare part expenses down.

The RX 8.0 is primarily designed for the production of PP and HDPE tape fabric for heavy-duty applications such as FIBCs, tarpaulins, as well as geo- and agrotextiles, and meets the specific machine requirements on the target markets. Nevertheless, also the production of lighter fabrics - down to 55g/m² - is possible. With its excellent price/performance ratio the RX 8.0 makes high-tech weaving possible at a competitive price.
