Stäubli, a leading textile machinery manufacturer, will exhibit at this year’s Techtextil in Frankfurt, informing visitors about the features, details, and advantages of the company’s latest machinery, systems and solutions for technical textiles production.

“The list of potential applications of technical textiles seems almost endless. Engineers and research institutes regularly find new and more demanding areas in which the use of textiles can lead to technical progress, weight reduction, cost savings, or other benefits,” the company reports.

“In order to capture these advantages, the textiles must meet stringent requirements, resist mechanical forces such as compression or shear, withstand environmental conditions, or meet strict medical hygiene requirements. In addition, the fibres, yarns, and even finished fabrics are often subjected to chemical and mechanical processes during or throughout the entire textiles manufacturing process.”

Stäubli is a leading expert in shedding (dobby and Jacquard machines) and weaving preparation (drawing-in and warp-tying machines). Based on over a century of experience in the traditional textiles industry and its continuous R&D activities, Stäubli continues to offer new and improved high-performance systems and solutions for processing technical textiles and other fabrics that can be individually adapted to the needs of the weaving mill.

Stäubli’s broad range of machinery for technical textiles includes Magma T12, the warp-tying solution for technical yarns. This tying machine processes monofilaments, coarse multifilaments, PP tapes, bast fibres, coarse staple fibres and many other yarn types.

The company’s LXL/LXXL Jacquard machines produce complex OPW (one-piece woven) airbags. These machines feature lifting motions that ensure precise shedding geometry and absolutely vibration-free movement even at high speeds. The optimally coordinated kinematics of all moving parts within the machine and the directly mounted components such as the drives enable routine weaving of very heavy fabrics. The shed opening is optimised and loads on the warp threads during weft insertion are reduced. The robust construction and use of high-quality materials are said to guarantee the reliability and longevity of every machine.

TF20 weaving system for complex multi-layer fabrics is individually configurable and allows the production of flat and spacer fabrics, complex and very thick and/or dense multi-layer fabrics, as well with material mix, and 3D textiles.

Finally, Alpha 500 Leantec weaving system for manufacturing high-quality artificial turf enables the economical production of high-quality synthetic turf and greige woven carpets.
