The demand for high-quality filter fabrics is growing worldwide. Among other things, this is due to stricter environmental and sustainability requirements, which demand ever more comprehensive performance parameters. At the ITMA Asia + CITME in Shanghai/China from June 12-16, Lindauer Dornier, Lindau/Germany, presents its latest developments in the production of high-quality filter fabrics and future-oriented fiber composite components.
The P2 rapier weaving machine is the successor to the P1 and is suitable for the production of high-performance fabrics. Dornier first presented the P2 in its standard version 2 years ago at the ITMA in Barcelona/Spain. The P2 is available in 3 versions: with a maximum reed impact of 2.3 tons, 3.7 tons and 5.0 tons.
The Composite Systems Division will present the newly developed production lines PROTOS and TRITOS. Both are used to produce highly complex fiber structures and components for lightweight construction.
PROTOS (Polymer and Roving to Sheet) is used to produce modern high-performance materials based on unidirectional, thermoplastic continuous fiber reinforcements (UD tapes). They are intended to ensure low weight in vehicles, wind turbines or robots, thereby helping to improve their economic efficiency and sustainability. TRITOS (Textile Roving into Three-dimensionally Oriented Structure) is used, among other things, to create 3D fabrics for aircraft parts.
The new customer portal myDoX will also be a focus of attention at the fair. Based on state-of-the-art database technology, it answers the question of how a traditional machine manufacturer handles the virtual data volume of its machines and systems. In addition to online parts order processing and as a substitute for thwarted customer visits and travels, Dornier has recently started offering virtual tours. Machines and lines can be viewed digitally according to customer-specific focal points in the German Lindau and Esseratsweiler plants.
