Since 2008, a combined show known as “ITMA ASIA + CITME” has been held in China, scheduled to take place every two years. Taking off in Shanghai, the milestone event features the unique strengths of the ITMA brand and China’s most important textile event -CITME. This move to combine the two shows into one mega high-quality event is strongly supported by all nine CEMATEX European textile machinery associations, CTMA (China Textile Machinery Association) and JTMA (Japan Textile Machinery Association). The fifth edition of the combined show will be held from 21 to 25 October 2016 at the new National Exhibition and Convention Center (NECC) in Shanghai. Leading textile machinery manufacturing companies showcase their latest innovative technologies in this show. Textile Focus technical team is presenting innovative technologies comp anywise.
Stäubli will be presenting a selection of its most modern products dedicated to the specific requirements of the Asian market, as well as to the worldwide weaving and knitting industry. The extensive range of textile machinery includes:
- shedding solutions for frame weaving (cam motions, dobbins)
- electronic Jacquard machines with harnesses
- weaving preparation systems including automatic warp drawing-in and warp-tying machines
- Schönherr carpet weaving machines
With its brand DEIMO, Stäubli will be exhibiting automation solutions for the knitting industry at a separate booth.
Products to be seen at the booths are:
High-speed Jacquard machines for any application
Three complete Jacquard installations with different types of weft insertion will show their quality weaving capacities at the two-level Stäubli booth featuring excellent vision on the whole machinery.
Two set-ups showing the re-engineered Jacquard SX and LX machines will be weaving terry cloths and upholstery on rapier weaving machines.
On another set-up with air-jet weft insertion the production of OPW airbags will be demonstrated by the Jacquard machine LXL for heavy payload with a weaving width of 280 cm. While the set up at the booth is equipped with a Stäubli harness with 12288 cords, this machine offers the possibility to achieve formats up to 36’864 by combining two machines in a tandem set-up.
In addition Jacquard weavers can discover the redesigned version of the highly appreciated Jacquard machine DX, especially dedicated to the requirements of Chinese weaving machines. As redesign at Stäubli goes with improvement of capabilities and characteristics, keeping always in mind the increase of the weaver’s ease and production performance, ITMA Asia is the occasion to achieve detailed information about the possibilities offered by this new version of the reliable Jacquard workhorse already performing in many Asian mills. The machine will be showcased in combination with different types of Stäubli harnesses for most versatile applications.
New dobby of 3rd generation now available for water-jet applications
As a novelty, Stäubli will be presenting newly developed dobbies S3062/S3061 for water jet applications. These dobbies feature the sophisticated Stäubli rotation principle with high-end locking system of the 3rd Stäubli dobby generation. On the weaving machine they can be installed in high position with the new harness motions de82/83 for high-mounting, offering e.g. maintenance free bearings.
To complete the picture of Stäubli shedding systems, further upgraded dobbies as well as refined cam motions are being demonstrated at the booth.
New automatic drawing-in machine SAFIR S40 for every weaving mill
The new mobile automatic drawing-in machine SAFIR S40, dedicated particularly to cotton weaves like denim and other standard fabrics, will be operating on the booth. With its unique and compact format it can fit in any traditional weaving mill. Like all of the SAFIR family members the S40 offers unequalled features like double end detection.
Schönherr carpet systems for most versatile woven carpets
