Benninger Unveils Versomat Warping Machine

Benninger AG, Switzerland, has launched the Versomat sectional warping machine with
the flexibility to produce short warps and samples as well as normal production warp lengths, using
yarns ranging from staple fiber and silk to multi- and monofilament.

Available in a working width of 3.6 meters for furniture coverings and decorative
fabrics, and 2.2 meters for apparel, the Versomat features a reed headstock integrated into its
superstructure; and laser-aided feed determination and section tension control, which ensure
correct package build-up over the width of the warp and constant thread tension over the warp
length. A new leasing device also located in the superstructure, rather than fixed to the floor,
enables efficient operation when changing lots.
