Warp thread tension control, Solex, meets varying weaving requirements on such fabrics as seat belts, airbag fabric selvages, elastic and filter ribbons, fabrics for medical care, etc. The system promotes higher efficiency through fewer thread breaks and machine stops. For higher warp thread tensionsmore than 40 kg per warp, for examplean alternative to the friction drive is available: a power connected drive. The needs come from different industry segments, but particularly tubular weaving. Willy Grob Ltd. 41 55-286-13-4. Wastewater treatment, GTV Size Recovery System, recovery rate of 85%. Reduction of dust emission in the mill. No enzymatic or oxidative pre-treatment for the desizing. Lower fresh water use and smaller wastewater discharge. Reduction of pollution load in the effluent by approx. 50-60%. Lower oxygen demand in aeration tanks. GTV GmbH (U.S. rep: Sourcing Services International). (864) 879-3650
Three-end leno device operates mechanically from the weaving machine by a toothed belt. From the bobbin, the crossing threads pass, via the thread guide, in an almost straight line through high-quality ceramic eyes. This permits processing even brittle, e.g., glass, yarns. With the minimum deflection, you can draw in the crossing threads with the auxiliary needle. The three-end leno device is available in single and double version, for installation on the picking and receiving side of the weaving machine.
