New production lines with increasing transparency and efficiency
The Hypertex technology combines a grid of endless yarns and nonwovens as a sandwich using the needlepunch process. An additional weaving process becomes unnecessary. The grid improves the tensile strength of products such as filters or roof sheets and will lower costs and production time. In the field of textile additive manufacturing the 3D-Lofter will provide fiber savings for needlefelts used in automotive and other applications.
diloline 4.0 includes a wide variety of smart manufacturing actions in collaboration with Siemens AG, Munich/Germany, which all aim at further simplifying operation, increasing transparency in web forming and consolidation, thereby increasing efficiency. Production data are stored, documented and compared. An alarm monitor indicates irregular behavior. A production analysis documents the reasons for standstill times. Numerous information modules can be recalled via mobile apps and cloud data (mindSpheres).
