Starlinger launches 10-shuttle loom for heavy-duty fabric

The new FX 10.0 10-shuttle loom from Starlinger, for heavy-duty fabric, features innovative reed design and enhanced key components that ensure highest fabric quality and production efficiency.

“First presented at ITMA 2015 in Milan, the FX 10.0 is the latest model in Starlinger's new FX loom series,” a Starlinger press release stated.

This, according to Starlinger, is reflected in the excellent loom performance and fabric quality, which Starlinger measures as the IQ (Indicator of Quality) of a loom.

“The IQ shows the fabric metres on a loom produced without warp breaks; the higher the IQ, the more metres have been produced without a machine stop due to warp tape rupture,” it explained.

“This accounts for a high overall efficiency, which in the case of the FX 10.0 is more than 70 per cent and the loom operates at a production speed of up to 850 picks per minute and produces fabric in the weight range of 55 to 260 gms per sq metre,” the company said.

The oil-free reed and shuttle design allows the production of tape fabric for food packaging applications.

“The FX 10.0 made a big impression at the exhibition, especially on FIBC and other heavy-duty fabric producers”, said Hermann Adrigan, sales director at Starlinger & Co. GmbH.

“We also used special materials for the elements in contact with the tapes so they run as smoothly and gently as possible,” he too added.

“And with a power consumption as low as 7.5 kW the FX 10.0 is currently the most energy-efficient circular loom on the market,” Adringer also explained.

Starlinger also informed that it is participating at Interplastica in Moscow being held from January 26–29, 2016 in Hall 8.1, Booth A04.

Starlinger is an Austria based engineering company and supplies machinery and complete lines for woven plastic bag production and PET recycling and refinement in over 130 countries. (AR)
