Technical design

 

We’re the specialist partner for exclusive customer-specific developments, patent solutions, utility models and prototypes. Our experts are looking forward to hearing from you.

Receiving

 

Every year, we take delivery of – and process – around 4,000 tonnes of yarn.

Yarn inspection

 

Before working, all our yarns are inspected in our own laboratory. The material is not released for further working unless it meets our demanding quality standards.

Shearing 

 

The skein, or groups of threads, are wrapped parallel on state-of-the-art aluminium weft beams with uniform tension. During weaving, the threads form the longitudinal direction of the tape.

Weaving

 

A weave is created by crossing the thread systems warp and weft at right angles. Warps, singly or grouped, form a shed, through which the weft thread is inserted by a shuttle or weft needle. We create a wide range of weaving patterns using computer control or control chains.

 

 

Our current shuttle weaving processes operate on the same principle as centuries ago, though of course significantly modernised. Today, machine qualities can be woven at speeds of up to 2,200 weft insertions per minute.

 

 

Braiding

 

Crossing of a single thread system in different orientations and angles creates braids with high flexibility. Our plant in Friesoythe is a high-performance braiding operation.

 

 

Dyeing / finishing

 

Depending on the specific requirements, the woven textile narrow fabrics are continually dyed, digitally printed or receive an abrasion-resistant or fire-retardant finish in our final processing.

Made-up products

 

Here, it’s all about the details. The fabrication steps for made-up products enable us to offer the desired further processing as well as individual detail solutions. Cutting, hole-punching, sewing, inserting grommets or injection-moulding plastic parts – we can offer special finishing even for the finished made-up products.

Printing

 

Screen process
In the screen process, customer designs are printed on the textile narrow fabrics in up to five colours.

Digital printing
The digital printing process enables multi-colour customer artwork and even virtually photorealistic motifs to be printed on the textile narrow fabrics.

Final inspection

 

Our finished textile narrow fabrics are regularly inspected on a sampling basis. Properties tested include tear resistance, shrinking behaviour, waterfastness, burning behaviour and much more.
