Schilgen Selects Sulzer Looms

Schilgen Selects Sulzer LoomsSultex Ltd., Switzerland, has delivered 37 new Sulzer Textil P7150 and P7300 projectile looms to a new facility built recently by Germany-based J. Schilgen GmbHandCo. Earlier this year, Schilgens weaving room for spun yarns was devastated by a fire, which destroyed 70 of its 110 weaving machines mostly Sulzer as well as special finishing machines. Following the fire, Schilgen decided to relocate and rebuild its industrial and wide-width fabrics operation. After investigating various weft-insertion solutions, Schilgen again decided to buy projectile looms and selected Sultex as its supplier. Schilgen reduced the number of weaving machines in the plant by expanding its capacity with 4- and 5-meter-width-fabric looms. September 2003
