Sultex Ltd Introduces Weaving Technology

Sultex Ltd. Introduces Weaving TechnologyPowerLeno, recently introduced by Switzerland-based Sultex
Ltd., is a new technology for weaving leno fabrics that uses a guide bar and eyeletted reed instead
of the traditional leno harnesses and leno heddles to accomplish shedding and warp twisting. The
leno device subjects the yarn to low stress levels, resulting in faster output and a more uniform
fabric appearance, according to the company. Operation is simple for a wide range of applications.
The technology offers working widths of up to 540 centimeters.PowerLeno applications include
fabrics for construction and agrotextiles, secondary carpet backings and products for the packaging
