Habasit displayed its latest innovation of proven solutions for the textile industry at ITMA. The international textile and garment technology exhibition was held from June 20-26, 2019, in Barcelona, Spain. Habasit is a manufacturer of timing and conveyor belts, fabric-based belts, plastic modular belts, and power transmission belts.

Visitors explored Habasit’s comprehensive portfolio of textile industry solutions, ranging from its new, patented ‘smart’ printing blanket to belts for yarn processing and nonwoven materials manufacture. At ITMA 2019, Habasit used a live test/demonstrator bench to present its patented concept for the first ever printing blanket with an integrated linear encoder, the company said in a press release.

“This leading-edge technology features a magnetic field acting like an electronic tape measure embedded in the belt. Put simply, this lets sensors read the exact measurements of the belt (with one sensor per colour), and coordinate with the print-heads to attain even greater printing precision by actively compensating for unavoidable mechanical imprecisions,” Luca Rovacchi, Habasit industry segment manager for textiles said.

The new concept builds on Habasit’s proven range of printing blankets, which is optimised for every kind of digital textile printing machine, from plotter types to high-productivity and high-precision multi- or single-pass printing machines, and flat bed and rotary screen printing machines. Very wide printing blankets can also be accommodated.

An example of Habasit’s innovative digital printing solutions is its recently-launched ENU-55AXBY. This innovative printing belt, which was displayed at ITMA, featured a strong aramid traction layer and a unique asymmetric 3-ply structure for low positioning of the neutral phase, enabling the highest printing accuracy on digital scanning and single pass machines.

For the first time at ITMA, Habasit presented not only its fabric belts but also its plastic modular belts and timing belts for yarn processing and non-woven applications. Given the firm’s growing portfolio of satisfied textile industry customers, it is important to highlight these high-performance belting solutions for the market.

Habasit’s comprehensive range of power transmission and conveyor belts for yarn processing will also be in the spotlight. The belts support applications for short- and long staple, as well as man-made fibres, covering every stage of the process: from bale opening to carding, combing, winding and twisting. With a solution for every application, including for high machine speeds, Habasit belts offer high machine productivity and output, valuable energy savings, long lifetimes, reduced downtimes, and consistent yarn quality. Power transmission belts are available in aramide, polyester, and polyamide, and feature a choice of joining methods.

Nonwoven textiles are increasingly used in areas ranging from hygiene and medicine, to automotive component manufacture, to geo-textiles. Habasit is taking a growing market share for its belts used with the crosslapper machines that produce nonwoven textiles. Information on the belts’ excellent productivity and high line speeds, fibre versatility, non-marking belt joint, and avoidance of fibre accumulation was available at the booth. (GK)
