Brückner will present its complete product portfolio and services at the ITMA ASIA + CITME show in Shanghai which opens this Saturday (June 12th).

Two agencies have been working for the company in China for many years, but in order to strengthen its local presence, Brückner founded its own branch office in Shanghai at the end of 2019. In addition to staff for sales, service and administration, the company’s technicians are on the road all over the country to commission machines and to attend to customers personally.

The technicians are also active throughout Asia and if travel times and distances allow, service calls can be realised within 24 hours. In addition, a local spare parts stock in Shanghai offers customers rapid availability of original parts.

Product range

For more than 70 years, the German textile machinery manufacturer has been the world leader in the field of the dry finishing of textiles, technical textiles, nonwovens, glass fabrics and floor coverings.

In technical textiles coating, for example, the company has already supplied many lines with fabric widths up to seven metres and for knitted fabric finishing, Brückner has been the world leader for decades.

Whether extremely sensitive fabrics such as lace or fabrics with a high elastane content are to be finished, or knitted fabric is to be coated directly, Brückner offers solutions individually adapted to the customer.

The different ovens in the company’s portfolio are for the effective drying and consolidation of nonwoven materials for diverse fields including hygiene and medical textiles, building and geotextiles and filter materials as well as fabrics for clothing, cleaning, care and vehicles.

Brückner also offers complete lines for the finishing of carpets, PVC floor coverings or artificial turf, all with components for energy saving, heat-recovery and pollution control.

Various application systems such as foam impregnation units, coating machines, kiss-roll or flocking units complete the product range and due to modular designs, Brückner lines are also very easy to clean.

Industry 4.0

In-house production in Germany ensures a high level of system diversity and enables fast and flexible adaptation to customer requirements. In hall 6 at stand A18 at the Shanghai show the Brückner team is looking forward to discussing new features relating to Industry 4.0 and automated production with visitors.

An intelligent assistance system now provides the machine operator with valuable tips on setting individual machine parameters. It automatically calculates, for example, how more energy can be saved while maintaining the same level of productivity. A newly developed maintenance manager monitors all processes in the background and supports operating personnel in planning maintenance and cleaning work. The system also provides information on the timely reordering of wear parts.

All current production data, such as batch size, energy consumption and machine downtimes, can be accessed at any time via the new dashboard tool. If the support of a Brückner technician is necessary, many service cases can also be solved online via augmented reality. This also helps over distance and saves time for both sides.
