Dilo Group receives good response at trade fairs
In June three major trade fairs took place for the textile machinery industry – ITM in Istanbul, Turkey, Shanghaitex in Shanghai, China and Techtextil in Frankfurt, Germany. Despite the current economic crisis, these events were well visited. A great number of decision-makers took the opportunity to inform themselves about novelties and current trends in the textile industry.
The DiloGroup provided information about its complete production range from opening and blending by DiloTemafa through carding by DiloSpinnbau to crosslapping and needling by DiloMachines. Special focus was laid on complete production lines as e. g. the AlphaLine designed for cost-efficient production of standard nonwovens like filters and geotextiles or the HyperLine for highest throughput speeds and lightweight products used for example in medical, hygiene and cosmetic applications.
The HyperLine consists of VentoFeed, DeltaCard, HyperLayer and Hyperpunch needling technology. The new card feeding system VentoFeed is a universal card feeder characterized by continuous feeding even at high throughput speeds for short fine fibres as well as for longer and coarser fibres. The HyperLayer crosslapper achieves web infeed speeds of up to 200 m/min. Such infeed speeds, combined with highest layering precision to give straight web edges and precise web joint, reduce restrictions in crosslapper output and web quality.
New standards for high speed preneedling are set by the Hyperpunch technique using a DBF batt feeding system and EPMC technology. Increases in productivity together with high web uniformity are an important prerequisite of the new Hyperneedling technology for “intense needling”. The term “intense needling” means an extreme increase in needle and penetration density with a simultaneous reduction of the fibre transport per stroke.
This results in excellent entanglement of individual fibres in the web, high resistance against abrasion forces and best surface quality without markings.
Hyperneedling is realized by the newly developed Cyclopunch units with approx. 20.000 needles/m/board. The needle barb is adapted to the fibre fineness in order to transport only one single fibre. A new kinematics moves the needle on a circular path resulting in an increase of throughput speed to more than 100 m/min. The Hyperneedling process allows production of light-weight felts made from fine fibres at an area weight as low as approx. 30 g/m² with high throughput speeds. These products can be used in the fields of medicine, hygiene, synthetic leather, interlinings and filter media.
In addition Dilo informed about the new AlphaLine. This cost-efficient production line is designed for medium throughput speeds up to 80 m/min. and represents a compact and economic solution for universal web forming and consolidation tasks. Its components are AlphaFeed, AlphaCard, Dilo-Layer DLA and the Alpha model series of needle looms.
In its Textile Technology Centre Dilo offers three complete production lines to help customers choose the most suitable machines and components. Furthermore, these lines are used for the research and development work of Dilo clients.
