Stäubli, the leading manufacturer of high-speed textile machinery, has presented its latest innovations in textile machinery at the recent ITMA exhibition that was held in Milan last month.

Industry representatives and other visitors from around the world responded with great interest to the offering of a total of 13 novelties designed to offer greater advantages and meet the needs and expectations of the market, the company reports.

Strong participation and positive results

For Stäubli, ITMA was an excellent occasion to present its latest innovations to the public. Several thousand visitors showed strong interest in the new high-performance products, according to the manufacturer. The Stäubli product brand DEIMO knitting solutions showcased its know-how at a separate attractively designed booth in the knitting hall.

The international Stäubli team received many customers and other interested persons, who confirmed that Stäubli’s strategy is well aligned with market needs.

A number of business agreements were made at the show, and the Stäubli sales teams must now convert the significant interest shown at ITMA into concrete business during the forthcoming months. Following this successful trade fair, Stäubli is looking forward to 2016 with strong optimism.

Interested visitors watched it in operation and were amazed by the dependable automatic optical yarn and colour detection functions, the company reports. Also launched recently is the SAFIR S40 automatic drawing-in system with mobile drawing-in trucks, which is especially interesting for denim weavers. It was creatively presented in an attractive holograph displaying the system details and showing the Matterhorn covered in denim.

The Stäubli product area DEIMO knitting solutions presented a world novelty to the knitting industry – the D4S fully automatic toe-linking device. Installed directly on the knitting machine, it permits unloading socks on the fly and ensures very short downtimes.

Jacquard machines

From an elevated deck at the booth, visitors could perfectly observe the new SX, LX and LXL Jacquard machines operating in combination with Stäubli Jacquard harnesses and healds.

The high-performance weaving machinery setups produced sophisticated applications like OPW (one piece woven) airbags and African damask, underlining the profound system understanding Stäubli provides to weavers by means of its Jacquard weaving machinery in combination with Stäubli Jacquard accessories.

Carpet weaving systems

A large part of the booth was dedicated to the newly unveiled ALPHA 500 INNOVATION carpet weaving system with an accessible weavers stand. It generated great attention, especially as it was in operation weaving the diverse and innovative carpets.

Another highlight and world premiere was demonstrated by the Stäubli product brand Schönherr carpet systems: Magic Shadow Effect (patent pending) for weaving single-colour carpets featuring astounding designs.
