Stäubli to exhibit technologies at ITMA Asia + CITME
French textile machinery producer Stäubli will be exhibiting technologies in weaving and knitting suitable for the Asian market at the forthcoming ITMA Asia.
The extensive range of textile machinery includes; shedding solutions for frame weaving among which are cam motions and dobbies; and electronic Jacquard machines with harnesses.
The exhibits also include; weaving preparation systems including automatic warp drawing-in and warp-tying machines; and Schönherr carpet weaving machines.
With its brand Deimo, Stäubli will be exhibiting automation solutions for the knitting industry at a separate booth.
Three complete Jacquard installations with different types of weft insertion will be on show and two set-ups showing the re-engineered Jacquard SX and LX machines will be weaving terry cloths and upholstery on rapier weaving machines.
On another set-up with air-jet weft insertion, the production of OPW airbags will be demonstrated by the LXL Jacquard machine for heavy payload with a weaving width of 280 cms.
According to Staubli, the Stäubli harness with 12,288 cords, offers the possibility to achieve formats up to 36,864 by combining two machines in a tandem set-up.
The company will also be presenting newly developed dobbies, the S3062 and the S3061 for water jet applications, which feature the sophisticated Stäubli rotation principle with high-end locking system.
“On the weaving machine, they can be installed in high position with the new harness motions De82/83 for high-mounting, while offering maintenance free bearings,” the company said.
To complete the picture of Stäubli shedding systems, further upgraded dobbies as well as refined cam motions are being demonstrated at the booth.
The new mobile automatic drawing-in machine SAFIR S40, dedicated particularly to cotton weaves like denim and other standard fabrics, too will be in operation at the booth.
“With its unique and compact format, it can fit in any traditional weaving mill and like the whole Safir family; the S40 offers unequalled features like double end detection,” it added.
The company further added that exclusive carpet samples woven on ALPHA 400 and 500 Series, some with the recently developed 'Magic Shadow Effect' or also called the traditional carpet effect can also be seen by visitors.
At a separate booth D15 in hall 4, Stäubli with its brand Deimo is showing two circular sock knitting machines in operation, featuring the automatic toe-linking device D4S driven by the 2900 SL controller.
“Visitors will also be able to see a selection of electronic control solutions, input or output devices, and related programming tools mainly for the textile industry,” it informed. (AR)
