At the Index in Geneva/Switzerland fron October 19-22, 2021, DiloGroup KG, Eberbach/Germany, will offer tailor-made production systems from one supplier and will provide information about the latest equipment developments from fiber opening to the finished felt.
A new, simplified elliptical needle beam drive makes Hyperpunch technology also attractive for standard application. Hyperpunch HαV allows a more uniform stitch distribution in the preneedling process especially in combination with the new needle pattern 6000X. In a complete needling line this felt homogenization process can be improved further by using the new needle pattern 8000X. this is a milestone in the needle pattern development process and results in end product surfaces with low markings over a wide range of advances/stroke.
The 3D-Lofter, which was first presented during ITMA 2019, offers a wider range of nonwovens applications by exploring the 3rd dimension. A series of single web forming units which work according to the aerodynamic web forming principle deliver defined fiber masses in varied patterns on a base needlefelt. A stress-oriented production of technical formed parts resulting in fiber savings or patterned Di-Lour or Di-Loop felts are two examples for this technology which explores new application areas for needlefelts.
The 3D-Lofter technology may also be used inverted for filling up bad spots in web mats and thus achieves a better homogeneity of e.g. spunlace, thermobond or airlay products. The DiloLine 4.0 concept offers I4.0 modules which not only support the user but also facilitate quality control and maintenance by a maximum data transparency in production and control of operation. The in-house solutions Smart Start for a fully automatic start of the production line or Di-Lowatt for energy savings are accompanied by Siemens solutions which can be selected via App or Data Cloud MindSphere.
Apart from machines for needling technology, production lines including thermobonding and hydroentangling components are also offered in cooperation with partner companies.
