Supplier Notes

Lauffenmuehle Purchases Sultex Weaving Machine

Protective apparel and workwear fabrics supplier Lauffenmuehle GmbH & Co. KG, Germany, has purchased a Sultex A9500 air-jet weaving machine from ITEMA (Switzerland) Ltd.

The Sultex A9500 has a new electronic platform with full-color touchscreen, Windows® CE-driven interactive user interface, ethernet/internet connectivity, and connection to LoomBrowser, which enables remote diagnostics. Other features include an optimized shed geometry, allowing the machine to be driven by a crank mechanism or conjugated cams; and fully digital air consumption metering for energy savings. Various configurations are possible for numerous applications, and include new lateral and central independent selvage devices for full-width reed weaving. Itema reports the Sultex A9500 requires less maintenance, owing to its simplified machine concept with 30-percent fewer parts than previous machines.
