Stäubli displays latest in jacquard & weaving preparatory at ITME
LXE1602 electric jacquard machine
These are among the products diplayed Stäubli booth at ITME-India which concluded recently in Bangalore
Jacquard applications and machines including harnesses and accessories for jacquard weaving:
LX 1602 and LX 3202 electronic jacquard machines in action:
These two jacquard machines are installed on a weaving machine each producing upholstery fabric. The LX 1602 is equipped with 5120 hooks, and the LX 3202 with 12288 hooks. Both jacquard machine models are designed for weaving flat and terry fabrics at high speeds and production rates.
The LX 1602 is available in the format range of 1408 to 5120 hooks, and its big brother, the LX 3202, in the range of 6144 to 18,432 hooks. The completely reworked and upgraded LX machines are built on a reinforced chassis and incorporate several mechanical improvements that also enhance reliability and minimise maintenance.
Since its introduction, the new LX generation has been proven in highly demanding installations worldwide. At the core of these models is the M6 module for driving the hooks, which is the key to higher load capacities.
Like other Stäubli jacquard machines, the LX and LXE types are controlled by the jacquard controller JC6. This controller has become the standard for Stäubli jacquard machines. Operation is very user friendly, partially because of the colour touch-screen. Full networkability (including USB ports) is a standard feature that allows access to pattern files wherever they may be located in a network.
The DX 100 and DX 110 electronic jacquard machines:
Designed for universal weaving of flat fabrics on rapier and projectile looms, are available in two formats, with 1408 or 2688 hooks. The features of this product family offer enhanced possibilities for shed opening by using dual-shaft technology for perfectly balanced movement, fewer moving parts, greater robustness, increased durability, bearings with lifetime lubrication, and centralised lubrication.
The DX 100 and 110 are also equipped with the M6 module, which increases durability and reliability while reducing maintenance time.
Jacquard machine CX 180 with 192 hooks:
This machine was previously designed for use on wide looms to produce name selvedges on both sides of the fabric. The newly developed version of the CX 180 is now universally suitable on needle looms for weaving ribbons. The machine will be demonstrated with a Stäubli HESTA harness, prepared for weaving 4 ribbons of 35 mm width and 192 threads each.
UNIVAL 100 single-end-control electronic jacquard machine:
With UNIVAL technology each thread is controlled individually by “Jactuators”, thus opening new application areas and niches. The independent drive system has no link to the weaving machine, minimising mechanical restrictions.
The great advantage is the possibility for users to explore an unlimited range of shed profiles, thus opening a broad application range for the production of demanding fabrics. UNIVAL 100 is available in various formats for 6144 to 15,360 threads or up to 24,576 if two units are coupled. Density and weaving width are variable, and speed is independent from format and number of warp yarns. UNIVAL 100 will be demonstrated with a harness of 384 ends.
