Narrow Fabric Weaving
NH2 53 2/130 – electronically controlled narrow fabrics
The successfully launched NH2 53 narrow fabric loom is now
available on the market in the widened and strengthened NH2 53
2/130 version, which has a reed width of 130 mm, enlarged shed
and in-creased heald shaft lifting power (= NF heald shaft
geometry). This machine shown at Techtextil 2017 attracted many
The electronically controlled NH2 53 2/130 narrow fabric
loom, which offers virtually unlimited repeat lengths, was 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. Mechanically controlled
machines do not possess this capability.
The bags can be used to carry tools or small components for
assembly purposes. The drawstring is woven in during the weaving
process, which means that an additional make-up phase is
The production costs of the machine are considerably lower
owing to its energy requirement of less than 2kW, limited
maintenance requirement and reduced need for spare parts, as
only a few mechanical parts are employed.
Warp Crochet Knitting Systems
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 machine comes in several gauges, from E10 to E20, has a
600 mm working width and is fitted with eight weft bars with
electronic control, which can effect weft movements of up to 34
A supplementary warp tube bar with electronic drive (BPO/STR-600)
can be supplied on request. This has an electronic drive that
allows the creation of various knit constructions in the warp
(open lock-stitch, closed lock-stitch, etc.) that lend the
fabric a lock-stitch character. More complex knit constructions
(e.g. double lock-stitch) are also possible using the BPO/STR-600
together with the standard warp bar, which is driven by special
cams (TRICOT/S). The machine is supplied with one feeder for
elastic threads, one feeder for non-elastic threads, one feeder
for warp threads and electronically controlled finished product
take-off. On request, additional feeders fitted with electronic
controls can be mounted on the machine for elastic or
The COMEZ ACOTRONIC 8B/600
electronic crochet knitting machine.
The electronic drive applied to the feeders and the finished
product take-off provides the possibility of varying stitch
density values (stitches/cm) in a single product, as well as
different values for weft/warp feeding and elasticity.
The COMEZ ACOTRONIC 8B/600 is fitted with the colour touch
screen DATA CONTROL CONTROLLER, which manages all essential
machine functions, monitors production data and enables the
realisation of lengthy pattern repeats. Indeed, the number of
lines available for each pattern is virtually unlimited.
Exclusive PC textile software completes the patterning and
The machine can be fitted with the electronic, DLT/EL long
throw device that can control up to three weft bars and allows
the production of fabrics with long weft movement of up to the
full working width along with the possibility of single pick
control. In order to guarantee constant warp feeding tension, an
electronically driven positive feeder can be used, which allows
the setting of the quantity and tension of the yarn to be fed to
A very interesting new feature of this machine is a special
embroidery device which allows to sew weft yarns into a ground
fabric. This devices 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).
For warp yarns in particular, it is possible to use beams
that require little space and ensure the starting steadiness of
the yarns. Beam supports are available for positioning on the
machine base or at a distance.
Technical textile make-up
The UV60-W automatic cutting and winding device. 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 was 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 mature and practically tested concept
is characterised by high levels of operational and service
friendliness, as well as compact design. Automatically applied
markings also facilitate further processing. Stored product
parameters can be called up easily and permit quick and
straightforward machine setting or adjustment.
UV60-W – Tool changer and winder.
The standard equipment of the UV60 includes
(one piece each)
- A sensor for belt end recognition.
- Electronic length measurement.
- A straight, hot knife with electronic temperature control
that permits cutting temperatures of up to 450°C.
- Pressing device for applied melts.
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.
