Mageba Launches Shuttle Loom Line

Mageba Textilmaschinen GmbH & Co. OHG, a Germany-based producer of narrow-fabric manufacturing systems, has introduced a new line of shuttle looms. According to the company, the new looms answer increased demand by the fashion, medical and technical sectors for narrow-fabric features available only with shuttle loom technology, including: evenly woven selvages on both edges of the fabric; up to four levels of weft insertion; increased flexibility with weft-insertion material; and high-precision pattern design.

New looms feature a modular component system based on the Schneider weaving systems, which enables looms to be constructed with one or several weaving heads according to the intended application and customer specifications. Three basic models are available, all of them customizable.

The SL single head shuttle loom weaves light- and mediumweight, flat, seamless tubular fabrics with a pick density of up to 160 per centimeter and up to 16 shafts.

The SSL C 170 multihead shuttle loom has an inside width of 1,700 millimeters and multiple single-shuttle weaving heads, and can have up to 24 shafts.

The SSL MT 140 multihead shuttle loom weaves such complex fabrics as Y-shaped tubes for artery filters and other multidimensional fabric constructions using a wide range of yarn types.
