BRÜCKNER presented new products, efficient
machinery and intelligent solutions
Under a moto
“Connecting the future” Brückner presented a wide range of
application examples for Technical Textiles which can be
finished on the tailor-made and resource-saving Brückner
machines. A great number of special machines for very specific
purposes showcases the competence of the Brückner team during
Brückner, “Technical textiles finished on BRÜCKNER
machines stand for a sustainable improvement of the
production and a particularly efficient use of the
The Southwest of Germany is a center for technical
textiles which amount to about 50% of the textile production.
The family-owned company BRÜCKNER, managed in the second
generation by the owner Regina Brückner together with her
husband Axel Pieper, is just in the right place based at
Leonberg in Swabia and Tittmoning in Bavaria. The proximity to
textile research institutes such as the ITV in Denken-dorf
allows many joint projects and developments which are used in
the special machines made by BRÜCKNER.
The product examples presented at the booth were
the subject of intense discussions with the Brückner experts.
The models of a SUPRA-FLOW BX double belt oven for nonwovens and
of the innovative ETRO bow-shaped dryer which is particularly
suitable for the coating with PVC or adhesives show only two of
the machines offered by Brückner for the finishing of nonwovens

In addition, Brückner offers very different
application systems for the coating of technical textiles and
one of them is the ECO-COAT minimum application unit. At the
Technology Center at Leonberg the customers can develop their
own innovations on different machines.
Furthermore, padders, drying, heat-setting and curing ovens
with maximum production capacity and lowest possible energy
consumptions and the highest precision in the temperature
distribution and air circulation are part of BRÜCKNER’s product
range. Various cutting and winding machines to give a shape to
technical textiles of any kind complete the product portfolio.
Some examples for the final applications processed the
Brückner finishing lines include: Woven glass fabric for circuit
boards, carbon textile for textile-reinforced concrete, linings
for walls and roofs in the field of automotive and aerospace,
airbags, high-tech filters for the medical industry, hygiene
articles and geo nonwovens for bank reinforcements.

Technical Textiles with focus on
their use in space
BRÜCKNER also organized a talk by Prof. Dr. Ernst
Messerschmid at Techtextil at its located hall 3.0.
Prof. Dr. Messerschmid is member of the Cluster Technical
Textiles Neckar-Alb with more than 50 companies and scientific
organisations gave a presentation about Technical Textiles with
focus on their use in space. In 1985, Prof. Dr. Messerschmid
holding a PhD was member of the “Challenger” space shuttle team.
In November 1986, he accepted an appointment as professor at the
University of Stuttgart and became Director of the Institute of
Space Systems (IRS).
Among many other tasks he was in addition from 1989 on during
10 years spokesman of the special field of research “High
Temperature Problems of Reusable Space Vehicles”.
Prof. Dr. Messerschmid published about 150 scientific papers,
he is co-author of several books and holds various patents. He
earned the Cross of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic
of Germany and several other medals and scientific prices. Since
2004 he is a member of Leopoldina, the German National Academy
