Lindauer Dornier presents filter fabrics at ITMA Asia
Lindauer DORNIER presented high-quality filter fabrics and future-oriented fibre composite components at ITMA Asia 2021.
Lindauer DORNIER, a machine and plant
manufacturer from Lindau, presented its high-quality filter fabrics and
future-oriented fibre composite components at ITMA Asia 2021 in Shanghai. According
to Wolfgang SchÃ¶ffl, Head, Weaving Machine Product Line, the company has been
successful in launching the most flexible weaving machine in the world. He also
informed that the P2 rapier weaving machine is the successor of the P1 machine
that has met the international industry standard when the production of
high-performance fabrics is considered. P2 was first time introduced at the
ITMA Barcelona and now as the corona-virus situation has slower done, the
success of this machine can be expected, he added.
It is observed
that the demand for the P2 machine has been rising amongst the technical
weavers despite the pandemic. DORNIER is a big name among filter manufacturers.
Jingjin Environmental Protection Inc, one of the largest filter manufacturers
in China relies on these machines to produce water filters. The company has
also started weaving on the P2 machine, recently. P2â€™s productivity is better
than P1 due to improved shed geometry, a maintenance-free drive, and frame
that the P2 machine is available in 3 versions with a maximum reed impact of
2.3 t, 3.7 t, and 5.0 t. According to him, the company covers the entire
spectrum of fabric production ranging from very fine to very coarse fabrics.
The demand for high-quality filter fabrics is growing all over the world to
filter air, water, blood, or gas. This is because of the existence of stricter
environmental and sustainability requirements that demand comprehensive
performance parameters. He added that the company is in close cooperation with
its customers and is continuously improving the quality of filter fabrics and
Systems Division is another element that is displayed at the ITMA Asia. The
main focus is on PROTOS and TRITOS. These newly developed production lines are
used to produce complex fibre structures and components for lightweight
construction. PROTOS is used to produce high-performance materials for
continuous fibre reinforcements. They help in improving the vehiclesâ€™ economic
efficiency and sustainability as they ensure low weight in vehicles, robots,
and wind turbines. TRITOS on the other hand is used to create 3D fabrics for
aircraft parts. DORNIER has been able to benefit the customers with its
experience in the field of developing machines for the aerospace industry.
As per Josef
Klingele, Head, The Composite Systems product line, the performance of fibre
composite components and the demands on material quality is very high in this
field. He also said that the company plans to optimize the manufacturing
processes of lightweight construction with the help of PROTOS and TRITOS. With
the development of both these systems, the company has shown its technological
leadership. Along with the existing customer base, the company has been able to
add new customers from the “non-fibre” industriesâ€ that include the
wood and metal industry. Also, sectors like mechanical engineering, mobility, and
energy are under great pressure to meet the demands of resource efficiency and
for environmental protection.
