Starlinger unveils FX 8.0 circular loom for fabric making

May '17
Starlinger, a leading supplier of machinery for woven plastic packaging, recycling, and refinement, has unveiled the new FX 8.0 circular loom for making heavy-duty tape fabric. One of the top models in the market, with 850 picks per minute and more than 30 per cent faster than other circular looms, it offers lowest production cost per square metre of fabric.

Being the latest development in the FX loom series from Starlinger, the FX 8.0 operates with eight weaving shuttles and features a newly constructed reed. Like all circular looms of the FX series, the FX 8.0 stands for excellent production quality and efficiency, which is shown in the so-called IQ (Indicator of Quality - the amount of fabric meters produced without warp breaks), and significantly reduced energy consumption. In addition, the wear and tear parts have increased lifetime, and the handling of the machine is very user-friendly.

The FX 8.0 is designed for the production of tubular and flat fabrics with up to 260 grams per square metres and can process polypropylene, HDPE, and PET tapes with a working width ranging from 1200 - 1750 mm double flat. Since no sliding parts are used in the loom it does not require a central lubrication system. This allows the production of fabric that can be used for food packaging. The new reed construction minimises vibrations, reduces the noise level, and protects the moving parts.

Hermann Adrigan, sales director at Starlinger said, “Our FX 8.0 and FX 10.0 looms deliver exactly what producers of high-performance tape fabrics are looking for. Their high working speeds and excellent production efficiency result in the lowest costs per square metre on the market, making fabric production for FIBCs, geo and agrotextiles, and other heavy-duty applications more cost-efficient. In addition, the excellent fabric quality ensures that the high standards for heavy-duty fabrics, especially when used for FIBCs - are met.” (GK)
