SUNTECH shows new rapier weaving machine at ITMA
SUNTECH showcased the new 450 rapier loom at ITMA 2020, booth 211 in Hall 4. SUNTECH and its product lines of weaving machines, special machinery and composite systems have become technological leaders. From June 20 to 26, 2021, the 20th Spanish Textile and Apparel Technology Expo will be held in Spain.
cloth loom machine is more flexible, faster and more efficient-it is the professional technical result of the development and manufacture of rapier looms for nearly seventy years. With this latest innovation from SUNTECH, the already excellent 400 has been decisively improved in all aspects of weaving. Therefore, with its improved shed geometry and more rigid frame, better insertion performance, maintenance-free drive (internally developed) and optimized positive active center transfer, 450 has since replaced 400 as the most flexible rapier in the world Loom. "The pre-development manager of DORNIER looms said at the press conference.
Even the size of the machine has been optimized: the new 450 is 240 mm shorter and 40 mm lower than its predecessor. In addition, the P2 machine structure consists of clearly defined main modules and auxiliary modules. This module-based construction principle is mainly to make conversion and expansion easier. This in turn ensures the user's greater investment security, because he can react more quickly to market changes.
450 can be used to process different yarns easily and quickly, for clothing, home textiles and weaving loom suppliers, as well as high-quality composite semi-finished materials. The center module of the frame structure is 75% more rigid than the P1, and it is also designed for optimal force flow. The torsional stiffness of the reed shaft is increased by 50%, making the weaving process more stable. Whether it is a jacquard knitting machine with cam motion, dobby (up to 24 axes) or up to 30,000 hooks, combined with the EasyLeno gauze system developed by DORNIER, up to 16 fill thread colors, P2 is a creative , Flexible, precise and efficient production of high-quality clothing and home textiles or glass, carbon or aramid technical textiles.
There are three models of this new machine. In addition to the standard configuration, the P2V is an enhanced version that can provide up to 37 kN of beating-up force, while the P2S heavy-duty loom has a maximum reed beating force of 50 kN, which is suitable for very heavy and dense technical fabrics. . Like all looms of DORNIER, all variants of P2 are equipped with high-performance interfaces, so they can be easily integrated into the IT/tool environment of the weaving mill.
In addition to the unparalleled DORNIER SyncroDrive drive concept, DORNIER's other three patents and optional innovations also provide the potential to further increase productivity: the color selection and feeding system diss (DCS) can handle up to 8 types very simply Color; the weft saving device (DWS) makes weaving without the left side edge, reducing waste; the double weft rapier head (DoPPIO) can freely turn colors and parallel weft insertion.
