DiloGroup, a leading company in the field of complete staple fibre nonwoven production lines, will exhibits its units DiloSystems, DiloMachines, DiloTemafa and DiloSpinnbau at the Techtextil trade fair, which will take place from 9-12 May in Frankfurt, Germany.

“DiloGroup’s four equipment components 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,” the company reports. “Customised lines are engineered, manufactured, delivered and put into operation by DiloGroup for the customer’s purpose and benefit.”

Order influx

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 will reach a total of around EUR 110 million, the company reports.

The increase has been accompanied by the creation of new jobs. Now the complete DiloGroup has about 450 employees. In addition, the company will increase our assembly space by 3000 m², the new hall is under construction and will be ready by mid-2017.

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%, the manufacturer explains.

Dilo machines

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 and productivity by the degree of automation and improved end product quality. Vector 200, for example, is a new crosslapper by DiloMachines, which is said to be unique with an infeed speed of more than 200 m/min.

Considerable progress has also 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.

Needle module technique

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

Furthermore, DiloGroup will inform about 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.

In close cooperation with DiloSpinnbau, DiloTemafa offers 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.
