As at last year’s successful edition, Stäubli will again be showcasing its state-of-the-art technology for efficient weaving. The company covers the entire spectrum of yarn types to be woven with its machinery range, which includes a wide array of dedicated solutions for processing synthetic fibers—crucial in the Surat region. We invite visitors to the trade fair to stop by Booth 256, where they can gain a comprehensive overview of Stäubli’s wide range of solutions and discover the latest developments in high-performance weaving technology.
Stäubli is a leading global supplier of Jacquard technology. Indian mills rely on the company’s solutions for weaving all sorts of Jacquard fabrics, from home textiles to technical fabrics, narrow to large-format applications, and apparel fabrics, including saris. It’s difficult to imagine a Jacquard weaving mill without a solution by Stäubli. Stäubli Jacquard machines have become a central element in mills that demand high productivity and top quality because they deliver a broad range of decisive benefit such as top energy efficiency and unsurpassed production speeds. Introduced at India ITME in December 2022, the LX PRO Jacquard machine is now in operation in many weaving mills around the world. It is equipped with the Stäubli TC8 controller, NOEMI electronics architecture for unmatched reliability in data transmission, and MX PRO modules – a combination of components that delivers significant energy savings.
High-speed frame-weaving solutions for any application
Whether using rapier, air-jet, or water-jet weaving machines, mills can choose from a wide range of Stäubli dobbies, including the S3000 / S3200 electronic rotary dobby series, or Stäubli cam motions like the S1600 / S1700 series.
Visitors to the Stäubli booth will observe the renowned S1692 cam motion, which handles up to 8 lifting units. The machine can weave a wide variety of applications and has found installation in numerous mills around the globe. Observing such machines in action gives a very good idea of the operational speed and performance that one can achieve. The latest generation of e32/33 transmissions operates these dobbies and cam motions, offering benefits such as reduced time and cost of maintenance, thanks to maintenance-free bearings and other engineering features. These machines and transmissions promise long service life so mills can plan on long years of efficient production.
Automated weaving preparation solutions from Stäubli – the pioneering leader
Stäubli began focusing on the challenges of high quality in style and warp changes decades ago. The Group’s R&D specialists, field engineers, technicians, and sales personnel collaborate closely with weaving mills to constantly perfect the company’s range of tying machines and SAFIR automatic drawing-in machines, as with the previous DELTA range. Currently offering three tying machines, the TOPMATIC, TIEPRO, and MAGMA, Stäubli covers the tying process for an extensive range of yarn types, from the finest yarns to coarse yarns and even PP tapes. Stäubli tying machines have become essential equipment in modern weaving mills that insist on top quality.
The Stäubli booth at SITEX presents a perfect opportunity to delve into the world of Stäubli original automation solutions that support a smooth downstream weaving process. Visitors should be sure not to miss the SAFIR S32 automatic drawing-in machine for filament warps. Equipped with Stäubli AWC 2.0 technology, including double-end detection as a standard feature, it stands out with its unique capabilities. The optional AWC 2.0 layer & offset management function allows the processing of complex repeats and double layers. Full of ingenious new features, this automation solution is an ideal way to improve the efficiency of style changes and streamline the mill’s downstream weaving process.
