Schlafhorst Adds DREF® To Product Range

Germany-based Schlafhorst, a subsidiary of Germany-based Saurer GmbH & Co. KG, has added DREF® friction-spinning machinery to its range of spinning and winding products. Integration of the DREF technology into Schlafhorst’s product offerings is a result of the acquisition earlier this year of Austria-based Dr. Ernst Fehrer AG, developer of the technology, by Germany-based Neumag, Saurer’s nonwovens machinery subsidiary (See “ Nonwovens/Technical Textiles News,” TW, July/August 2005).

The DREF technology, which will be available through both Schlafhorst and Fehrer, opens up new technical and specialty niche markets for Schlafhorst. The machines include the DREF 2000 system for coarse yarns and the DREF 3000 system for multicomponent yarns.
