Swiss textile machinery supplier Jakob Müller AG plans to exhibit its latest equipment at hall number 3, stand number B19 at the forthcoming Techtextil 2017 to be held at the German city of Frankfurt. The equipment to be displayed will enable manufacture of woven as well as knitted tapes, webbing, woven ropes, woven labels besides technical textiles, printed narrow fabrics, dyeing, made-ups and winding machinery.
Displayed at the Jakob Müller AG stand will be NH2 53 2/130 S2, an electronically controlled, narrow fabric needle loom for light-to-medium weight, elastic and non-elastic narrow fabrics with unlimited repeat lengths. The successfully launched NH2 53 narrow fabric loom is already available in the market. Its new widened and strengthened NH2 53 2/130 S2 version which will be displayed has a reed width of 130 mm, enlarged shed and increased heald shaft lifting power.
The NH2 53 2/130 S2 is an electronically controlled narrow fabric loom, which offers virtually unlimited repeat lengths. It will demonstrate production of a bag tape with woven-in drawstring.As a result of the electronic shed formation possessing patterning possibilities employing up to 16 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 loom enables lesser production costs due to its less than 2 KW energy consumption, very less maintenance requirement and reduced need for spare parts, since very few mechanical parts are employed. Also on display will be Comez Acotronic 8B/600, an electronic warp crochet knitting machine using compound needles for ribbons, technical and medical articles, besides the UV60-W machine for measuring and winding of belts, safety belts, narrow fabrics and tubular goods.
The Comez Acotronic 8B/600 is a high-efficiency, electronic crochet knitting machine which 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 processing of natural yarns like cotton or wool as well as special fibres like kevlar, fibre glass or 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 mm. A supplementary warp tube bar with an electronic drive (BPO/STR-600) will be supplied by the company on request.
