Weavers will learn about innovations in weaving preparation and see high-speed shed formation solutions for all sorts of woven applications in action. Carpet weavers will see brand new pattern samples that impressively demonstrate Stäubli’s innovative binding technologies.

As a world premiere at ITMA Asia, Stäubli will unveil the new Beampro yarn repeat reading-in machine, an automation aid at the sizing machine for sizing coloured warp sheets. Visitors can learn more about this weaving preparation solution at the show.

At a different booth, knitters are invited to meet with Stäubli knitting specialists and observe the latest automation device in action, which has been developed to significantly shorten the sock production process.

 “ITMA Asia is an ideal opportunity to find out all about Stäubli’s comprehensive product range, which is perfectly suited to the needs of Asian mills,” the company says.

Automation in weaving preparation

Visitors to ITMA Asia will see a further development in the company’s Safir line of automatic drawing-in machines: the Safir S30 set up especially for handling filament yarns. Featuring a new 16 frame/rod capacity, this setup is said to be ideal for high-density warps with fine filament yarns.

The Safir product range features state-of-the-art AWC (active warp control) technologies such as double-end detection, colour repeat, and S/Z-yarn management.

Frame weaving solutions

As another novelty, Stäubli will be presenting its latest high-position rotary dobbies for water-jet applications, the S2658 and S2678 series. The S2678 will be on display in combination with the new de82/83 harness motions for high mounting, featuring an ingenious design incorporating valuable features such as maintenance-free bearings. These machines can be installed in the high position on the weaving machine, supporting the production of quality patterned fabrics.

In addition to the electronic rotary dobbies, Stäubli’s S1300 and S1600/S1700 series of cam motions will also be exhibited. These machines are available for high-speed weaving using every type of weft insertion system.

Jacquard weaving

Visitors will see two complete Jacquard installations featuring different kinds of weft insertion. These installations are equipped with the LX and LXL Jacquard machines, designed for the production of terry and large-format clothing fabrics. Dedicated to large formats, the LXL setup is equipped with 19,584 harness cords (format of the machine exhibited is 10,240 hooks). The display will show the heavy payload capacities of this machine when weaving dense clothing fabrics. The LX setup (format of the machine exhibited is 4,096 hooks) will be shown producing terry fabric, operating 6,652 harness cords with two repeats.

A DX Jacquard machine will be shown, also demonstrating the broad range of Stäubli harnesses.

Carpet samples

Exclusive samples woven on Alpha carpet weaving systems will be on display, exhibiting binding technologies and patterns ranging from extra-high-density carpets with traditional patterns to ultra-modern designer carpets.
