Spotlight on some Stäubli novelties
Outstanding performance is always based on good preparation, and this also applies to weaving. That is why Stäubli has again expanded its range of weaving preparation solutions. The SAFIR S60 automatic drawing-in machine, offering the highest levels of efficiency and productivity, has been successfully launched. Interested visitors watched it in operation and were amazed by the dependable automatic optical yarn & color detection functions.
From an elevated deck at the booth, visitors could perfectly observe the new SX, LX and LXL Jacquard machines operating in combination with Stäubli Jacquard harnesses and healds. The high-performance weaving machinery setups produced sophisticated applications like OPW (one piece woven) airbags and African damask, underlining the profound system understanding Stäubli provides to weavers by means of its Jacquard weaving machinery in combination with Stäubli Jacquard accessories.
A large part of the booth was dedicated to the newly unveiled ALPHA 500 INNOVATION carpet weaving system with an accessible weavers stand. It generated great attention, especially as it was in operation weaving the most diverse and innovative carpets. Another highlight and world premiere was demonstrated by the Stäubli product brand Schönherr carpet systems: Magic Shadow Effect (patent pending) for weaving single-colour carpets featuring astounding designs.
The Stäubli product area DEIMO knitting solutions presented a world novelty to the knitting industry, which responded with amazement: the D4S fully automatic toe-linking device. Installed directly on the knitting machine, it permits unloading socks on the fly and ensures very short downtimes.
