Tradition and High-Technology working together
Thread for thread: precision and quality are our top priorities. Thereby, producing flawless fabrics in our company in Reutlingen. We fully take into account any particular requirements of the characteristics and lifetime of the fabrics.
Our production facility is continuously adjusted and optimized in accordance with our customer’s needs. Since June 2015, we have one of the most modern projectile weaving loom in the world. All of our fabrics are exclusively produced in our facility in Reutlingen, South Germany.
For the correct position of warp yarns and weft yarns, we examine every centimeter, every seam, every fabric. In this way, we can guarantee that only products of the highest quality leave our manufacturing plant.
Fast, flexible and personal: high quality service is the basis of a longstanding partnership between ourselves and our customers. We want you to succeed with the help of our products and services. This includes providing solutions individually tailored to meet your own particular needs.
On-site service: Our services include professionally mounting our wires directly on the customer’s site, using our own specialist staff. Measuring and testing the wires also forms an integral part of our service. With sales and support offices in over 25 countries worldwide, we are always close at hand.
Potential for optimisation
and greater energy efficiency
Coating – Fabrics in best shape
At your request, the fabrics can be equipped with our TOPAZ©NT coating. This coating provides a high level of protection against abrasive wear and dirt. Wires with the TOPAZ©NT coating are distinguished by high levels of three dimensional stability, improved retention and faster dewatering.
The application of the TOPAZ©NT coating reduces the internal friction in multi-layer fabrics and this in turn results in an extended lifetime and reduced energy consumption. The TOPAZ©NT coating is resistant to chemical cleaning agents.
Less energy – more efficiency
The adjustment of the drainage process offers the greatest potential for increasing dry content and reducing energy demand in the wire section.
The second main area is a tailor made fabric design – here efficiency can be greatly improved and also a lot of energy saved. In this regard, the use of the new Villforth VEXTREME© yarn makes a convincing contribution. This new development combines the advantages of polyester and polyamide and is both dimensionally stable and abrasion resistant. As a result, VEXTREME© yarns can be used up to 100% on the roll side whereby a monoplanar machine side structure is formed. The Villforth VEXTREME© yarn reduces frictional loss to a minimum, and thereby lowers the drive power.
Arrangement of PA and PET on the roll side of conventional fabrics:
The yarn diameters of PET and PA are initially identical. However after they have absorbed water, the diameter of the PA yarns increases. This leads to a step-like structure on the bottom side of the fabric which can cause vibration or a loud whistling noise.
The diameter of Vextreme© yarns remains constant during production.
