DiloGroup, a leading group in the sector of staple fibre needling lines, has reported a successful participation at this year’s record-breaking Techtextil, which together with Texprocess attracted more than 47,500 visitors from 114 countries who came to Frankfurt last month.

New machine techniques and technologies, interesting products and spectacular visions of the future were presented during the four days of Techtextil. International visitors crowded the fairground to discover high-tech textiles used in applications like foldable textile floodlights, smart knee braces, warming or cooling fashion and clothes with integrated LED lights, incombustible fibres, bicycle frames made from carbon fibre and textile membranes for stadium roofs.

DiloGroup informed visitors about interesting trends and topics and a great number of customers and interested parties paid a visit to the Dilo booth. Staple fibre needling lines, which consist of fibre preparation, i. e. opening and blending equipment, card feeding and cards, as well as crosslappers and needle looms, were the main topic of discussion on the fair, according to the company.


“One important aspect for users is the joint drive and automatization technique, which is used to interconnect the whole system and which complies with the demands of modern interlacing and smart production,” the manufacturer explains.

Customised production lines for each purpose and value are designed, manufactured, delivered and put into operation by DiloGroup. Service and high availability of spare parts support the high operational availability of Dilo needling lines.

DiloGroup presented its standard universal lines at Techtextil 2017, as well as the latest innovations of the Dilo portfolio, which have been developed to provide increased manufacturing efficiency, improved end product quality and greater productivity aided by the degree of automation. The machines of DiloGroup are used in all the most important sectors such as automotive, floor coverings, synthetic leather, geotextiles and filtration.

New technology

The new technology HyperTex using an inline yarn layer to produce multi-layer reinforced nonwovens has been developed especially for filter media, geotextiles and roofing material. This new approach has been acknowledged with great interest, the company reports.

“In the field of special fibres processing as used for carbon composite materials made from recycled fibres much headway has been made. Compact special lines for product development using recycled carbon fibres are now successfully operated,” the company explains.

In addition, DiloGroup informed about wide carding systems with high web speeds used in water entanglement lines. DiloSystems offers such special carding systems in working widths exceeding 5m and web speeds of more than 400m/min.
