DiloGroup, from Eberbach, Germany, with its units DiloSystems, DiloMachines, DiloTemafa and DiloSpinnbau, will inform about complete lines, presenting the latest developments in all components at the upcoming Shanghai International Nonwovens Conference & Exhibition (SINCE) that takes place next month.

This year, more than 450 exhibitors will present on a floor space exceeding 34 000 m² the complete industry value chain from nonwovens raw materials, production machines and accessories to the end product. The related industries covered include hygiene, filtration, fabrics and apparel, medical, automotive, wipes, home furnishings and upholstery.

Individual lines

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. According to the manufacturer, 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”.

Individual lines are engineered, manufactured, delivered and put into operation by DiloGroup for the customer’s specific purpose. 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 inform visitors about the latest developments in Dilo machines, which aim to increase efficiency, productivity and improve end product quality by the degree of automation.

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


Dilo machines may be used for the production of nonwovens used in automotive, as floor coverings, synthetic leather, geotextiles and for filtration, just to name the most important fields of application.

A new special line configuration using an online scrim fabric machine for the reinforcement of multi-layered nonwovens has been developed for the production of filter media, geotextiles and roofing material. Information about this special configuration will be available.

Considerable progress has been achieved in the processability of special fibres like carbon using recycled fibres to make composite materials. Compact special lines for product research and development with recycled carbon fibres are available and can be discussed with interested visitors.

Cooperation with Groz-Beckert

A close cooperation with needle manufacturer Groz-Beckert has advanced the development of the needle module technique and the intense needling of lightweight nonwovens. Ample information will be available at the booth.

Furthermore, DiloGroup will discuss 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 web formation systems with working widths exceeding 5m and resultant web speeds of more than 400 m/min after water entanglement and drying.
