LINDAU, Germany — October 8, 2012 — On the occasion of the India ITME in Mumbai, DORNIER will now
present the new weaving machine P1 for the first time on the Indian market. Highest requirements of
current and future developments for complex technical textiles can be fulfilled by DORNIER with the
highly-precise working air-jet and rapier weaving machines adapted to customer-specific demands.
The well-proven robust machine construction of the rapier weaving machine with high reed beat-up
forces allows weaving different diameters. DORNIER is the ideal partner for the constantly growing
sector of technical textiles.
Of course, the DORNIER system family consisting of rapier and air-jet weaving machines offers
all solutions necessary to produce technical textiles as well as clothing and home textiles. All
machine types convince through their durability and flexibility in the practical use. Avoiding
second quality and waste as well as reducing the consumption have priority in all developments and
contribute to the conservation of resources.
For rapier weaving machines, the low tension weft curve in connection with the open shed weft
insertion allows a gentle insertion also for very delicate types of yarns. The weft transfer in the
center of the fabric thanks to the positively controlled rapier offers an optimal reliability of
the weft transfer also for multifilament yarns.
A DuoColor device reduces the weft waste with technical textiles by more than 50%. Thanks to
completely new future-oriented electronics which process big data volumes in real-time, it was
possible to optimize the weft insertion elements of the new air-jet weaving machine generation and
their control in a way that a considerable reduction of air and energy was achieved. These new
electronics also contributed to introduce the patented separate drives called DORNIER SyncroDrive®
which allow a higher performance and, at the same time, reduce visibly the wear of mechanical
components of the weaving and shedding machine. By implementing the latest technology, DORNIER
establishes a standard which enables the customers to work in an even more profitable way. This
also offers a high resale value to the customers.
