Vamatex R880 Rapier Weaving Machine

Looms And Weaving Machines Comments Off

Vamatex R880 Rapier Weaving Machine photo looms and weaving machinesThe Vamatex R880 is the result of the long standing experience in the design of rapier weaving machines. The unique rapier drive system is based on the proven Propeller. Further improvements increased the output of the R880. Very strong steel side frames combined with rigid and sturdy cross members result in a high machine stability and low vibrations.

The compact dimensions and small cross section of the Vamatex R880 rapier heads, the optimized guiding elements over the full width of the machine and strong rapier tapes made from carbon assure an optimal performance at high weaving speeds. Special clamps in the rapier heads ensure the insertion of a wide range of cotton and filament yarns.

On the Vamatex R880 style changes and warp changes are easy and quick. The easy to open spring locks facilitate rapid
changes of the warp beam and cloth roller without the use of any tool. Quick warp changes are made easy because the
warp beam gear wheel remains on the weaving machine. For symmetrical width adjustments, setting of the temples and
the selvedge cutters very little effort is involved and few tools are required.

Handling and maintenance
The R880 weaving machine has a low maintenance concept. All gear transmissions are oil immersed and virtually maintenance
free. Thanks to the low number of moving parts the Vamatex R880 excels in low energy consumption. There are few
wear and tear parts and the reduced consumption of spare parts allows a low cost of ownership.

Sultex G6500 Rapier Weaving Machine

Looms And Weaving Machines Comments Off

Sultex G6500 Rapier Weaving Machine photo looms and weaving machinesWith the Sultex G6500, ITEMA sets new standards in rapier technology. Excellent fabric quality, high machine performance
and low production costs are the three key features that make this rapier weaving machine the new front runner, giving today’s weaving industry an advantage in quality and performance coupled with unprecedented economy

The Sultex G6500 is based on ITEMA’s decades of experience and expertise. This rapier weaving machine is a synthesis of proven technology and pioneering new developments. Thanks to the use of leading-edge CAD tools, precise matching of the
individual components was possible from the outset. Thus, even during the design phase, the machine’s functions could be simulated, tested and optimized to meet the demands of everyday weaving practice. To maximize the productivity of this new
machine, ITEMA engineers focused on lowload weft insertion and minimal warp loading. Available in ten machine widths from 170 cm to 360cm, the G6500 is the economically efficient way to a quality product for every type of fabric.

Your benefit:
With a machine speed of up to 700 rpm and a maximum weft insertion rate of 1520 m/m, the G6500 is the top performer among rapier weaving machines.

The G6500 was designed for a broad range of styles. It can be set up very quickly and flexibly to meet changing market requirements.

Economic efficiency
The straightforward engineering design and a correspondingly low number of mechanical parts, as well as the short set-up times, help to keep running costs to a minimum.

By minimizing stoppages and thanks to the reproducible settings, excellent fabric quality of a consistently high standard is achieved.

Weaving environment
The low vibration level and standardized interfaces to the weaving accessories and production management
systems mean that the G6500 can easily be installed in an existing weaving facility.

LWT710 water-jet loom

Looms And Weaving Machines Comments Off

LWT710 water jet loom photo looms and weaving machinesThe new LWT710 water-jet loom is a fusion of the fundamental technologies in the LW Series water-jet looms perfected over the past 40 years, the carefully planned functioning concepts of the JAT710 air-jet loom which has achieved the major share of the global market and the needs and expectations of our customers. Through our unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction, we have created the ideal weaving machine, combining higher speed and lower vibration with a wide range of new and improved features.

The new LWT710 Series Water Jet Loom has these superb features,

Enhanced Operability
The function panel offers vastly improved communications features. We have made use of the latest in electronics technology and troubleshooting, with our sights firmly set on the future of fabric mills to achieve not just great visibility, but also dramatically improved machine operation and handling.

High Speed
Maximum speed: 1,250 rpm
A new beating mechanism, new frame structure, ultra-fast CPU processing speed and other design features enable operation at a maximum speed of 1,250 rpm (R/S 190, single-color, crank-shedding specifications).

High Quality
Offering a short stroke and extended weft insertion time has allowed us to dramatically shorten the distance from the beating point to the heald frame. Beat-up performance is improved and shedding volume is reduced enabling the weaving of high-quality textiles while placing minimum strain on the yarn.

Use of the beating link and let-off / take-up controller from the dependable and proven JAT710, along with use of a new weft-insertion mechanism, make possible weaving that is gentle on the yarn, from light to heavy fabrics. The full complement of standard equipment, together with a diverse range of options that include our own innovative w-FIS and a ten-frame negative cam, make it easy to accomplish weaving fabrics of varying fineness, high-density fabrics, and more.

Low Vibration
Through 3D design and computer analysis, we have achieved optimization of the frame structure, including the cross-rail connections, along with lighter weight and optimized balance for the beating mechanism. This in turn achieves low vibration during high-speed operation.

Communications Features
The function panel enables communication in-house as well as with customers and the Toyota head office through the application of TMS or iTTCS.
