DiloGroup from Eberbach, Germany, with its units DiloSystems, DiloMachines, DiloTemafa and DiloSpinnbau, will once again participate in the ITM + Hightex Exhibition in Istanbul next month, where international textile producers will be presenting the complete industry value chain, from nonwovens raw materials, production machines and accessories to the end product.

DiloGroup enjoyed above-average order influx in all important markets for its machines and installations and had record turnovers in 2015 and 2016. Due to an increase of about 20%, the overall turnover in 2016 has reached a total of around EUR 110 million.

Also, the lines sold to Hassan Group and to further well-known Turkish companies in 2017 show the high importance of the Turkish market for the entire DiloGroup, the company explains. The increased turnover has been also accompanied by the creation of new jobs. Now the complete DiloGroup has about 450 employees. In addition, DiloGroup increased the assembly space by 3,000 m².

Nonwoven production lines

DiloGroup will inform visitors about complete lines, presenting the latest developments in all components. “The strong demand for Dilo production lines is partly due to the high attraction of needled nonwovens themselves with a yearly increase in consumption of about 6-7%,” said the manufacturer. Staple fibre production lines start with fibre preparation – opening and blending – from DiloTemafa, card feeding and cards from DiloSpinnbau and end with crosslappers and needlelooms from DiloMachines.

“The quality of DiloGroup’s four equipment components, opening and blending, carding, crosslapping and needling, is important to customers. A Dilo line stands for highest productivity with best web quality. This goes hand in hand with a high efficiency as the mentioned four machine groups are controlled by a single drive and control technique and fulfil all requirements for modern crosslinking and smart production.”

Vector 200

Service and spare parts supply to support the high availability of Dilo nonwoven production lines is available worldwide. In addition to information about standard universal lines, the company will discuss its latest developments in Dilo machines, which aim to increase efficiency and productivity by the degree of automation and improved end product quality.

An example of such an innovation is the Vector 200, a new crosslapper by DiloMachines, with an infeed speed of more than 200 m/min.

Dilo HyperTex installation

Dilo machines may be used for the production of nonwovens used in automotive applications, as floor coverings, synthetic leather, geotextiles and for filtration. Numerous fields of application require needled nonwovens with high lowload resistance. This is generally achieved by using reinforcing mesh/grids.

The Dilo HyperTex installation with the Turbotex scrim fabric machine of Messrs. Ontec automation produces a reinforcing scrim, which is fed between two needlefelts and then needled together by a Hyperpunch needleloom.

The mesh apertures of this scrim can be varied up to 20 x 20 mm, production speed is up to 40 m/min. The HyperTex installation in a working width of 2.5 m is ready for presentations and trials in Dilo’s Textile Research Centre in Eberbach, Germany.

Needling technology and carding systems

Furthermore, DiloGroup will present its universal needling technology and carding systems of wide working width and high web speed for water entanglement lines. For this important, special branch of nonwoven production normal lines have a working width of about 3.8 m and medium web speeds of around 200 m/min.

DiloGroup’s portfolio includes carding systems of wider working width and higher web speeds. DiloTemafa offers in close cooperation with DiloSpinnbau these special carding systems with working widths exceeding 5 m and resultant web speeds of more than 400 m/min after water entanglement and drying.
