Leading Swiss manufacturer of high-speed textile machinery Stäubli attracted great interest and held intensive and constructive talks with visitors at the ITM trade fair for textile machinery, which concluded in Istanbul, Turkey, last month.

At the show, the company exhibited its complete range of systems and solutions for the weaving and knitting segments, attracting industry representatives from Turkey, as well as Eastern and Middle Eastern countries.

“We were glad to see this overwhelming interest in our solutions for the weaving and knitting industry. Our reliably and precisely running high-speed shedding solutions such as cam motions, dobbies, and Jacquard machines, convinced many weaving industrials,” commented Fritz Legler, Sales and Marketing Manager.

“The renowned SX and LX electronic Jacquard machines could be seen on our booth but were presented in addition on the two complete Jacquard installations visible on this years’ ITM fairground. This underlines the positive regard from the whole weaving industry towards us. Stäubli is renowned as a leading supplier for state-of-the-art-technology that meets the customers’ needs and brings further benefits to the weavers in terms of reliability, long service life, and versatility in application.”

At its booth, Stäubli showed for the first time in Turkey the automatic drawing in machine Safir S40, featuring a mobile drawing-in machine and stationary drawing-in station. This installation is said to offer multiple layout possibilities and with its little space requirements fits into every mill. Out of the versatile Safir Series, the Safir S40 model is dedicated to mills processing cotton warps. “So, this exhibit was perfectly in line with one of the most visible trends at ITM: denim. Especially in the Turkish weaving industry denim fabric is again in the focus,” continued Mr Legler.

Even though ITM 2018 was followed by Domotex in Gaziantep, many carpet weavers came to Istanbul to discover latest carpet samples woven on the company’s Alpha carpet systems. “The exhibits showed Stäubli binding technology know-how through their unique patterns, perfect surfaces and sharp designs without mixed contours, thus from low to very high densities depending on the application. These properties are part of the perfect pre-arrangement for any kind of carpet project, if rug or wall to wall, for private households, public places such as sport stadiums or the transportation sector,” added Mr Legler.

Stäubli also supports the country’s successful knitting industry, sock knitting industry in particular, with automation solutions, such as the D4S automatic toe sewing device, which is designed to increase the efficiency in the mill.
