Dilo, the leading equipment supplier of complete lines for staple fibre nonwoven fabric production has readied themselves with the latest machine concepts from DiloGroup companies – DiloTemafa, DiloSpinnbau and DiloMachines for upcoming IDEA 2016. These innovations will be promoted with the emphasis on new equipment components to improve product quality and increase line capacity. Dilo is all set to demonstrate and present this series of new innovations at the IDEA show in Boston, to be held from 3 – 5 May, 2016. As part of the exhibit, the following are the innovations that Dilo has in store for the visitors. DiloTemafa has introduced versions of the Baltromix bale opener and the card willow which are particularly suited to the processing of longer fibres at highest throughput. Longer cleaning intervals and shorter cleaning times also result from the design changes. The DON dosing opener remains as an intermediate between fibre preparation and the card feeder and provides a fine opening stage.
DiloSpinnbau has a new ‘Unifeed’ card feeder which combines the principle of volumetric charged feeding with the characteristics of a chute feeder but without the conventional overhead trunk which allows lower ceiling height. The fibre flock matt is condensed by a vacuum delivery apron to give better uniformity of mass distribution. Additional flaps control this over the working width. This feeder can be adapted for medium/fine to coarse and medium to long staple fibres. The newly developed card ‘VectorQuadroCard’ incorporates a modular transfer group between breast and main section. The quick change facility of this roller group provides different carding options. The delivery system is also flexible to provide parallel laid, random or condensed web. The pre-opener section on this card has 4 worker/stripper pairs with five pairs on the main cylinder.
DiloMachines has a new DLSC horizontal crosslapper version which allows electromechanical web feed speeds up to 200 m/min depending on fibre specification. This lapper works in conjunction with the proven CV1A web regulation system for improved felt evenness. In addition to wide needling lines for the economic production of large volume products as in the geotextile industry, Dilo offers a compact line which is designed for the production of small amounts of high quality felts used in the medical sector and for specialty felts made from specialty fibres.
