DiloGroup will have an information booth in Hall Forum at the upcoming Inlegmash 2018 and invites all visitors to discuss the latest machine trends, as well as innovations in needlefelt production.

In 2018, four top events will be once again co-located at the Expocentre fairgrounds within the Russian Textile Week, which takes place from 20-23 March. These include Techtextil Russia, Inlegmash, Interfabric, and an international forum Legpromforum-2018.

Inlegmash, the trade fair dedicated to every step of textile manufacturing, from fibre processing to final product packaging, last year featured 126 companies from 18 countries, attracting 4,500 buyers in only three days.

Energy efficiency

“To create a link between economic production and high-quality end products has been the goal and the impulse for developments and innovations at Dilo. The most important goals are energy efficiency, throughput capacity, end product quality and increase of efficiency by reducing downtime. These aims have resulted in changed and new machine designs and thus created opportunities to produce economically high-quality end products,” the company explains.

“The adapted automation of the Baltromix bale opener and the carding willow of DiloTemafa allows better processing of long fibres at highest throughput and extended run-time with fewer cleaning intervals.”


The newly developed VectorQuadroCard of DiloSpinnbau becomes different card types by the flexible and quick change of the transfer group. It therefore allows the production of many end products with high throughput and optimum web quality, according to the manufacturer.

By realising electro-mechanical web infeed speeds of up to 200 m/min the new horizontal crosslapper of DiloMachines’ DLSC model series I said to ensure crosslapping is no longer the bottleneck of a needlefelt production line.

In addition to wide needling lines for the economic production of greater volumes as required for example in the geotextile industry, DiloGroup offers a new compact line, which has been designed to make small quantities of high-quality needlefelt used for medical applications, as well as for special needlefelts made of specialty fibres, such as carbon.


Numerous applications as for example filter media, geotextiles, roofing material and composites require needlefelts with increased tensile stiffness. This is achieved by using reinforcing scrims, grids or yarn layers.

The new technology HyperTex, which produces multi-layer needlefelts consisting of base needlefelt, reinforcing material and cover needlefelt, uses the scrim fabric machine of Ontec Automation GmbH, which feeds a reinforcing scrim made of yarn or filaments online between two felt layers.

The felt layers may be preneedled offline. In this case, the scrim fabric will be fed between two unwinding stations and in a subsequent step bonded together at high speed using Hyperpunch needling technology. Also, two-layer structures (1 layer needlefelt, 1 layer scrim fabric) can be consolidated this way.
