Stäubli, a leading textile machinery manufacturer, will present at the upcoming Dhaka Int’l Textile & Garment Machinery Exhibition (DGT) that takes place from 9-12 January, with its machinery and system solutions for optimising workflows in weaving mills that seek to capture benefits like time savings and increased overall efficiency.

Stäubli invites textile industrials to visit the booth of its agent, Spintex Technology. A range of Stäubli products will be displayed, offering weavers and knitters solutions that are adapted to their specific needs and requirements: from automation of weaving preparation to ultra-reliable shedding solutions for frame and Jacquard weaving to an innovative device that shortens the sock-knitting process.

Automated weaving preparation

With its Safir automatic drawing-in machines – especially the Safir S40 and Safir S60 – Stäubli offers solutions for weavers seeking to improve their weaving preparation process and their production of denim, linen, and shirting fabrics. These machines support just-in-time processing and are designed to boost the production of premium-quality fabrics. They are flexible in use and can be easily adapted to future applications. All Safir models feature AWC technology, including optical double-end detection as standard.

Visitors will also see the Topmatic 201 PC automatic warp tying machine for fine-to-standard yarns in the yarn range from 0.8 to 500 tex. The machine features double-end detection and works reliably even with flat warps without a lease. In addition to flexibility, weavers profit from the long service life. Mills processing sectional warps can also learn about the recently launched Beampro warp reading-in machine for an improved sizing process.

SX and LX Jacquard machines

With an optimised housing and high-performance lifting mechanism, these machines operate reliably even under the most demanding conditions in the mill. The maximum number of hooks for Jacquard designs is 25,600 – or 51,200 hooks by combining two machines.

“Adaptable to all types of machines, whether air jet, rapier, or water jet, the SX Jacquard machine produces excellent results in the form of terry cloth, decorative materials, or silk fabrics, as well as textiles for tapestries, apparel, or seat covers,” the company reports.

Shedding systems

Stäubli’s broad product portfolio includes solutions for frame weaving with air-jet, water-jet, rapier, and projectile weaving machines. A recent addition is the new, highly robust 1692 cam motion, available with up to 8 lifting units, operating at a pitch of 12mm. Its automatic and fully integrated levelling device prevents overstretching of the warp and eliminates start-up marks. The interchangeable cams give mills maximum flexibility as the same cams can be used for creating both a warp and a weft effect, the manufacturer explains.

Stäubli also offers a solution for water-jet weaving: the S3061 model of the S3000/S3200 electronic rotary dobby series. It features the Stäubli concept of selection of heald frames by locking for secure frame selection and continuous weaving. The dobby is compatible with all the major brands of weaving machines, and customers can choose the machine that best matches their requirements.

Automation solutions for knitting

“The recently launched D4S toe-linking device is becoming indispensable in more and more knitting mills. This ingenious device sews the toe closed while the sock-knitting machine simultaneously produces the next sock. The precise operation of the device ensures perfect linking quality,” the company says.

“Thus, the D4S answers several key challenges in knitting: minimising idle time, delivering higher-quality and higher-volume output, and reducing waste material, the increasing price of which eats into profit margins.” Installing the D4S device on a sock-knitting machine promises a quick return on investment for the mill. In addition to more efficient production, the mill will also benefit from enhanced operator convenience and expanded functionality, especially thanks to the independent 2900SL electronic controller.
