Low energy consumption, even for high-speed weaving, is additionally emphasized on the Si range. The Smart Drive is equipped with a unique feed forward system, predicting the design-related load so minimizing the over-all power consumption.

Clear and reliable bi-directional data communication is made possible by the fast responding, easy to use Ce controller.Low Maintenance and Smart Energy Management, to name just a few features, are easily accessible. Remember that Bonas is the only jacquard supplier allowing 100% diagnostics of the selection system - the heart of jacquard weaving.


Superba, already the leader in heat-setting with saturated steam under pressure thanks to their well-known TVP3, is now offering the KR1: a brand-new automatic knotting system assisted by a robot. The KR1 system can be used in many industrial branches, enables to handle, pack and label bobbins. With this machine, SUPERBA’s commitment is to help customers to improve their productivity thanks to an industrial robot running 24/7. Suitable for DTY, BCF, Artificial Turf, Tyre Cord, Tape & more.


On BEJIMAC side, for carpets, they will be delighted to present: Autonomous Shearing Machine (ATSH) for Carpets:

The ATSH exemplifies our commitment to customer needs. By developing new technologies, they say they reduce reliance on qualified operators.

Furthermore, a new singeing machine for knitwear focuses on quality, flexibility, and economy. It ensures tension-free fabric transport during singeing and meets the growing demand in knitwear. By reducing the gas consumption in singeing a milestone has been achieveed. BEJIMAC offers fabrics with high intensity singeing while minimizing resource consumption. In towel shearing BEJIMAC is reclaiming leadership. "The cutting-edge shearing techniques ensure impeccable results, elevating the quality of towels produced", a press speaker stated.


IRO-ROJ describes itself as the leader in developing weft feeders for the textile industry. 

Presenting the new X4 Weft Feeders with ”integrated accessory display” IRO-ROJ announced they setting a new feeder standard. The current settings and any alarms can be easily monitored using the integrated display – with any required changes being easily made using the adjustment knob.

X4 feeders are available in three different versions – (i) with integrated Tension Display (TED), (ii) with integrated Active Tension Control (ATC) and (iii) with Rapid Tension Control (RTC).

(i) Standard with TED – Tension Display that makes it possible to reproduce weft tension settings from one machine to another. Enabling a fast start-up the next time the same article is woven. The position of the S-Flex Tensioner is constantly being monitored by an internal sensor – even if adjustment is made during power off.

(ii) With the optional ATC-W Active Tension Control the required tension is easily set and monitored on the integrated display. Once set, the system constantly regulates itself ensuring consistent yarn tension during the weaving process. The yarn tension is constantly and accurately measured by the ATC sensor unit, sending a signal to the ATC operator unit resulting in consistently stable yarn tension at the required level.

(iii) With the optional RTC Rapid Tension Control, a fast reacting, programmable weft tensioner system. The major advantage is that there is only one setting for the weft tension.

ZTF – Carbon and tape yarn without any twist.

The Zero Twist Feeder (ZTF) keeps the yarn constantly stretched to avoid the risk of any snarls or twisting of the tape. The Zero Twist Feeder is supplied as either a single channel unit, or as a weft mixing version. – welcome to the digital tool

MEMMINGER-IRO GMBH is the world market leader in the development, production and sale of yarn feeders, monitoring and lubrication systems for knitting machines.

Among other products, MEMMINGER-IRO will present the following latest developments

+ Storage feeder K52 / K52 ATC

K 52 is the latest generation of high tech storage feeders, equipped with a CAN BUS communication and focussed on functionality, easy maintenance and simple operation. Highlights are the new developed spiral output brake for finer and even adjustment of yarn output tension, integrated yarn consumption measurement and automatic determination of the quickest possible stopping time in case of yarn breakage (“Fast stop”).

K52 ATC is equipped with an Active Tension Control system, which ensures that the yarn output tension remains constant at the preset value, independent from external factors like size of the bobbins or quality of the yarn.


The MEMMINGER-IRO Communication Interface MCI is designed to control Storage feeders, tension-controlled feeders, motor drive systems and quality control devices produced by Memminger-Iro. This latest generation is webserver based. It is possible to operate one machine or several machines via one panel. With the MCI the knitter gets the maximum flexibility according to its demand.

+ SFE2

The storage feeder SFE 2 is an economical version of storage feeders which includes all state of the art functionalities such as adjustable yarn input tensioner, yarn separation and stepless adjustable yarn output tension. It is designed to offer an economic solution for knitters with reduced investment costs.

The servo motors of MRA 4 completely replaces the quality adjustment pulley assembly. This results to receive a constant, precise stitch length and therefore an improved fabric quality. Article reproducibility is more accurate. The technical parameters of the motors are adapted to the trend of faster circular knitting machines with more feeders. The system as such is more economic which results in a much shorter Return on investment.
