DiloGroup was the only nonwoven machine manufacturer to show on its booth, with a surface area of more than 1200 m², two complete lines which were operated with fibre.
The high capacity production line with a needleloom working width of 7 m included highly productive machines for fibre opening and blending as well as a newly developed card feeder, a high-capacity card with variable intermediate section and a horizontal crosslapper which ran with a web infeed speed of more than 200 m/min. In addition, DiloGroup showed a universal compact line which will be used for needling recycled carbon fibre in future.

During the ITMA show, Johann Philipp Dilo, CEO of DiloGroup, consigned this state-of-the-art DILO compact line to Institut für Textiltechnik Augsburg, Germany, represented by Prof. Dr. Stefan Schlichter (ITA Augsburg) and Prof. Dr. Thomas Gries (Institut für Textiltechnik, RWTH Aachen, Germany).

This compact line includes fibre opening and blending, card feeding, carding and crosslapping, needling and winding. The line which was first presented at this show is characterized by consistent focus on a compact line layout, a fast adaption to changing production conditions and an economic mode of operation. For this purpose numerous innovations were realized in each machine. These innovations also facilitate the modifications necessary for the needling of carbon fibre.

Technicians, technologists and the complete sales staff worked together to present the advantages and the high-capacity of the DiloGroup machines to all visitors, interested parties and customers.

Numerous discussions with customers and new orders show that solid mechanical and electrical engineering at the production sites Eberbach, Bremen and Bergisch Gladbach in Germany will continue to have a bright future.

Customers from all over the world visited the DiloGroup booth. They mainly came from Europe and the United States, but also from China, Iran, Turkey, Russia and North Africa. During the show, DiloGroup obtained numerous orders for machine deliveries. In addition, a large number of new projects were initiated.

The presence of DiloGroup at ITMA was further proof of the successful performance and cooperation of the individual units DiloSystems and DiloMachines in Eberbach, DiloSpinnbau in Bremen and DiloTemafa in Bergisch Gladbach.
