Jakob Muller machines provide top performance & max efficiency

Apr 29, 2019

Machines from the Jakob Müller AG’s NG3 series are the world’s fastest narrow fabric needle looms and an NG3S 2/66 S5 for medium-weight belts will be in operation at the Techtextil.

The NG3 series of narrow fabric needle looms represents a technical and technological development quantum leap. The heald frame drives and movement, as well as the shafts and healds are designed for high speeds, and for medium-weight articles now offer a maximum of 2,750 min-1 (using the S5 weaving system). One of the main reasons for this high performance is the new, wear-resistant NGV3 harness. In tandem with top quality raw materials, weft thread guidance, compensation and monitoring guarantee first-class product quality and reduced standstill times. The patented compound needle system is characterised by the safe, low-tension insertion of the threads. This results in increased efficiency and a simultaneous reduction in knitting needle breaks. Moreover, the NG3S version of the machine (the “S” stands for “silent”) is fitted with additional noise protection, which cuts emissions by as much as 10 db(A).

The NG3S 28G 2/66 S5 offers the following advantages:
  • High production performance with speeds of up to 2,750 min-1
  • The possibility for speed changes while the machine is running
  • Excellent machine efficiency in combination with low wear and a minimum maintenance requirement
  • Patented, air-sprung heald motion for high speeds
  • Extremely reliable and reproducible narrow fabric quality with selvedges of a very high standard
  • Simple and clear operation and control
  • Outstanding machine and operator safety
