CREALET’s innovative tech for electronic warp feed at ITMA

Preparations for the world’s most important textile machine fair are currently in full swing. From 20 to 26 June, CREALET will be presenting innovative technologies for the electronic warp feed for narrow and wide weaving machines at the ITMA 2019 in Barcelona. The trade fair focuses on ‘Innovating The World Of Textiles’ precisely reflects CREALET’s core business. ITMA is thus the ideal platform for CREALET to demonstrate the entire portfolio, to exchange ideas with experts and customers and to get in contact with young talents.

The two independent companies CREALET AG and Rüti Textil GmbH seize the opportunity of a joint trade fair participation. Both are experts in the weaving process with the use of the latest technologies in the field of industry 4.0. Crealet AG is specialised in customised warp feed systems and Rüti Textil GmbH is expert in development tasks of the weft insertion.

Introduction of CREALET’s new appearance
CREALET is thrilled to announce the introduction of the new corporate design, with a refreshed logo. The new design is in line with the evolution of the company with new products and services under the leadership of the next generation of leaders. All areas, processes and communication channels will be equipped with this new design - but it is impossible to update all at the exact same time.

Apart from the new, fresh appearance the visitors can expect new and inspiring features for optimising warp tension control of small warp beams. CREALET’s core competence are special solutions in warp tension control for narrow and wide weaving machines.

New features for warp tension control
CREALET develops drives and controls that allow a fast and precise positioning and synchronised movements that support highest dynamics in an intelligent system network.

LT control unit: The new LT controller is a control unit for warp tension control. It is suitable for various areas of application where the measurement and control of the warp tension is required. Typical areas of application are the control of small warp beams in ribbon weaving or selvedge bobbins on wide weaving machines. It is also used for warp feeding by feed rollers when weaving from creel. The LT control unit is designed for continuous operation in the Textile Industry, with features for a quick setting. The LT control unit contains a display which shows measured warp tension, active functions/settings and display settings in the menu.

Industry 4.0 & IoT: A rapidly advancing industrial digitisation and trends like smart factory and the Internet-of-Things are challenges and prospects CREALET will handle together with qualified partners to expand CREALET’s position. A first step in this direction has already been realised with a customer project in the area of safety-relevant narrow fabrics.

Innovation with sustainability: CREALET specialises in existing warp let-off devices in narrow and wide weaving machines that no longer meet the requirements of modern, efficient drive and control components. This reduces the amount of work required and improves fabric quality.
