NH2 53 2/130 – electronically controlled narrow fabrics loom

NH2 53 2/130 version, which has a reed width of 130 mm, enlarged shed and increased heald shaft lifting power (= NF heald shaft geometry) will be exhibited at the Techtextil 2017. Jackob Muller has informed NH2 53 2/130 which offers virtually unlimited repeat lengths, will be shown producing a bag tape with woven-in drawstring. As a result of the electronic shed formation possessing patterning possibilities employing up to sixteen electronically controlled heald shafts, a variety of bags in differing sizes can be produced on every machine space.

COMEZ ACOTRONIC 8B/600 – an electronic crochet knitting machine using compound needles

This is a high-efficiency, electronic crochet knitting machine that employs compound needles for the production of a wide range of ribbons, technical and medical textiles, both elastic and non-elastic. Compound needles make the machine highly versatile, as in addition to classic synthetic yarns (polyester, polyamide) they allow the processing of natural yarns (cotton, wool) and special fibres (Kevlar, fibre glass, carbon, basalt) in the warp.

The release tells that, ‘A very interesting new feature of this machine is a special embroidery device which allows sewing weft yarns into a ground fabric. This device requires the use of piercing-compound needles and the yarns that can be processed are really numerous: Synthetic and natural yarns as well as high-performance fibres (e.g. Kevlar, fibre glass, carbon, basalt).’

The UV60-W automatic cutting and winding device for technical textile make up:

The UV60 automatic cutting and winding machine is designed for the make-up of medium-weight and heavy, non-elastic belts. Coreless rolls are wound from the start of the belt and the end can be fixed with a metal clip. Rolling from the middle of the belt is also possible with the result that both belt ends are free for further processing. The machine is also suitable for the cutting of belts to length alone.

At the fair, the machine will be shown for the first time with a new five-compartment tool changer. The tools sit on a rail and are quickly and precisely positioned over the belt using SPS control. As a result, the UV60 offers a vast range of make-up possibilities. The five-compartment tool changer allows the integration e.g. of a marking device, a rotatable knife for angled cutting and a perforation tool. The UV60 thus provides an enormous selection of range of processing and make-up possibilities.
