PFÄFFIKON, Switzerland — May 11, 2021 — At ITMA Asia 2020, Stäubli will present its wide range of machinery equipped with state-of-the-art, high-end technologies and software solutions that offer new and expanded benefits to textile mills. The trade fair will be taking place from June 12-16 at the National Exhibition and Convention Centre (NECC) in Shanghai. Visitors to the Stäubli booth at C21 in Hall 3 will learn how Stäubli solutions can boost weaving or sock-knitting performance and their overall mill efficiency.
The optimal course of a weaving process depends on many various prerequisites resulting as well from upstream processes, including yarn processing and warp preparation. With its SAFIR series of drawing-in systems, Stäubli offers unique advantages, such as the preparation of top-quality warps with perfectly aligned yarns. The secret is AWC (Active Warp Control), Stäubli’s exclusive yarn sorting technology, which handles both single and multiple yarn types. Visitors to the Stäubli booth will experience how the precision and ingenious technology of the SAFIR S40 automatic drawing-in machine leads to more first-quality output and supports on-time delivery.
Frame weaving – new Stäubli developments expand the range of solutions
Thanks to its continual R&D activities, Stäubli delivers machinery that perfectly meets evolving market demands and the associated customer requirements. Stäubli frame-weaving solutions are renowned for reliable high-speed weaving and adaptability to any kind of plain or patterned fabric and any kind of weaving machine. Robustness and high quality have made the broad range of 1600/1700 series of cam motions and the S3000/S3200 series of electronic rotary dobbies well known as extremely reliable workhorses with a very long service life. These machines form a perfect system in combination with dedicated maintenance-free Stäubli transmissions, which are built to the highest quality standards.
Jacquard weaving – Stäubli covers the spectrum
From large-format machines (up to 25,600 hooks) to name selvedge Jacquard machines, weavers can choose from a wide range of Stäubli electronic Jacquard weaving solutions. The LXM Jacquard machine will be presented at ITMA Asia. It is available in two formats (2,688 and 5,376 hooks) and thus meets the requirements of a wide range of applications and assures reliable operation at high weaving speeds. Stäubli’s convincing answer to the growing need to protect premium proprietary fabrics with brand-name selvedges is the N4L name Jacquard machine, which is being shown for the first time in Asia at ITMA. This machine boasts easy handling, high availability, and reduced maintenance needs. It stands for quality brand-name weaving.
Carpet weaving – ALPHA 500 series of Schönherr carpet systems
Area rugs or wall-to-wall carpeting. Low pile, lightweight loops, flat, cut pile, or high density – whatever the next carpet-weaving challenge may be, the ALPHA 500 carpet weaving system adds immense flexibility to any carpet-weaving mill. It weaves the highest-quality applications and enables swift response to rapidly changing market demands.
Sock knitting – D4S toe-closing device increases productivity
Sock manufacturers face tough challenges. They must be able to rapidly adjust to market demands and meet tight delivery schedules. In sock knitting, toe closing is the critical step. It is very time consuming and helps determine the quality. This is where the D4S toe-closing device comes into play. Installed directly on the circular knitting machine, it closes one sock whilst the machine is already knitting the next one. Visitors to the Stäubli booth will see the impressive efficiency of this device in action.
Besides offering many decisive functional advantages, Stäubli machines promise a very long lifespan, especially when original replacement parts are used. Stäubli keeps these in stock for many years after the sale. This is in keeping with the company’s mission: offering advantages and benefits to customers and providing genuine partnership for successful and sustainable business.
