Stäubli future-oriented innovations
Innovative weaving technology for
Stäubli has been one of the world’s leading manufacturers of
high-speed textile machinery since more than a century. After
decades of experience as a supplier of shedding solutions for
weaving machines, weaving preparation systems, and carpet
weaving systems in the traditional textile industry, Stäubli
continued its efforts in research and development to extend its
product range. For several years already the company is in a
position to offer textile machinery dedicated to the production
of technical textiles. Weavers who count on Stäubli
high-performance machinery benefit from features like high
reliability and flexibility will be able to take the lead on the
market of technical textiles with innovative and creative
products for countless applications.
A selection of technical fabrics including spacers and
multi-layers with variable thickness that have been produced in
conjunction with Stäubli products such as TF weaving systems,
dobbies, Jacquard machines, warp drawing-in, or tying equipment
were displayed at Techtextil in Frankfurt.
Magma T12 warp tying machine
For technical yarn ties monofilaments, coarse
multi-filaments, PP ribbons, bast fibres, coarse staple fibres,
and many other fibre types. The Magma T12 has been developed for
universal application ranging from coarse technical yarns to
medium yarn-count range. Its rigid design includes an optical
double-end detection system.

MAGMA was demonstrated at the booth tying
monofilament, diameter 0.40mm, density 7 threads/cm, 4 canister,
140 threads each.
This single-end control Jacquard machine offers
more benefits for sophisticated technical textiles such as
automotive and aeronautic textiles, technical textiles in the
sports, industrial, medical sectors, and new fabric
constructions, even with glass fibre, carbon, and Kevlar.
The information regarding UNIVAL applications was
provided during the fair. The new TF weaving system provides
individual system configuration and maximum flexibility. This
system offers virtually unlimited weaving possibilities, whether
for flat, spacer, or complex multi-layer fabrics and 3D fabrics.
Featuring latest shedding machines in combination with the
double-rapier weft insertion system and a special slaying motion
this system allows high-volume production of up to very thick
and/or dense fabrics and efficient processing of a wide variety
of technical and highly sensitive yarns. This weaving system is
available featuring various machinery combinations and set-ups
for weaving any application and desired technical fabric.
