Innovative technologies such as DI-Loop, DI-Lour and Hyperpunch have opened new markets and contributed to their growth. Current developments will offer custom-made lines at the five-day fair which do not only increase capacity but also fulfill end product property requirements, DiloGroup said in a press release.
With its new compact line, Dilo has contributed significantly to the recycling of composites. Recycled carbon staple fibres are reprocessed into felt and can then be further converted to new structural elements. In contrast to most staple fibres, carbon fibres have characteristics (smooth surface, no crimp, low cross strength) which require adaption of web forming within the carding machine.
In the HyperTex process, Dilo combines a scrim fabric machine of Messrs. OnTec with a Hyperpunch needleloom. The structure derives its strength from needling scrim, upper and bottom felt together. Very high production speeds up to 40 m/min can be reached. Infinitely variable mesh sizes in the scrim and a wide variety of different reinforcing yarns offer a great flexibility to the customer. The high efficiency in regard to fibre and energy consumption and the low space requirement are further significant advantages of this technology. (RR)
