VIENNA, Austria — March 2012 — A new level of circular tape weaving technology: Starlinger shows
new FX 6.0 circular loom at ITM in Istanbul
Easy handling, high efficiency, long-living wear parts, low maintenance are the keywords in
the development of the FX 6.0 circular loom.
The FX 6.0 raises the efficiency and quality standards in woven tape fabric production to a
new level: High production speeds and less machine stops make it possible to achieve an efficiency
of 90 % and more. With a top machine speed of 1150 picks/minute, the loom reaches a production
output of up to 185 and more (depending on design) meters of tape fabric per hour. The graphical
touchscreen display makes it easy to handle, and the clearly laid out machine overview allows
uncomplicated parameter setting and monitoring of the individual machine parts.
An optimised shuttle geometry and reed design account for the high production speed. The use
of long-living ceramic elements in the warp compensation, heddle wires and weft insertion fingers,
as well as the reduction of friction parts contribute significantly to cut down service and
maintenance costs. Electronic tension control and warp and weft tape monitoring help to reduce
production waste and the number of machine stops, thereby ensuring high efficiency and constant
fabric quality. The FX 6.0 is designed for lightweight and heavy fabrics in the weight range of 50
g/m² to 130 g/m².
