Nanocoated boards to reduce friction on jacquard harnesses

Apr '08
AGM Jactex has announced that it plans to introduce nanocoated comber boards which can be attached to jacquard machines harnesses and will ultimately lead to reduced friction on harnesses.

In an exclusive interview with fibre2fashion Mr Mark Feer, CEO of the company said “the boards are made from a vulcanized regenerated cellulosic material which makes it more effective as it absorbs a little of the coatings. The harness cords will last longer on account of reducing the abrasion particularly at high speeds.”

Mr Feer added “90% of the company's business was generated from jacquard weaving sector, with rest of the contribution coming from accessories for the general weaving industries.”

The company is looking in to coatings being researched at universities across Switzerland that will help reduce friction on the harness, more particularly those set at an angle down from the jacquard machines to the loom.

AGM Jactex was founded in 1997 from the sale of the textile division of AG Muller. The company has customers in more than 80 countries across the globe.
