Machinery designed for producing technical textiles

By guest  Sibylle Michel, Editor-in-Chief of Textile Network

Visitors to the Stäubli booth will see, for example, the Magma tying machine, which is ideal for processing technical yarns, including PP tape.

When it comes to weaving technical fabrics, profitable and competitive mill operation requires high precision and optimized production speeds. Stäubli machinery provides both, as well as exceptional durability.

Stäubli’s reputation for quality machinery is based on ingenious technologies developed through continual R&D, the use of top-quality materials, and comprehensive service before, during, and after the machinery installation. Stäubli textile machinery is in daily operation around the world, producing all sorts of technical fabrics. Producing technical fabrics such as one-piece woven (OPW) airbags, custom fabrics for lightweight construction, and artificial grass is subject to highest demands, and these are fully met by the company’s broad range of cam motions, rotary dobbies and Jacquard machines, but also its complete TF weaving systems. In addition, Stäubli provides renowned automation solutions to optimize time consuming weaving preparation processes, such warp tying and drawing-in.

A Stäubli TF20 weaving system was recently installed at the Hof University of Applied Sciences, more precisely its Institute for Material Sciences, in Germany. The purpose of this installation is to support the study of new material mixes, especially with carbon and/or ceramics, and new applications for various industries. The TF weaving system comes with a shedding solution that offers unlimited binding options and is encapsulated in order to process conductive fibres like carbon. A selection of technical fabrics woven on the Stäubli TF weaving system can be seen at the booth.
