N. Schlumberger, the world leader in spinning lines participated at the expo. Patrick Strehle, sales director of N. Schlumberger also presented a collaboration for processing Para-aramid fibres and carbon fibres.
Elias Junker, an area sales manager, described how a recycling and nonwoven eco-friendly solution was tailor made for Nova Fibers (Grupo de Todos) in Guatemala. Hubert Ttretsch, Superba marketing manager explained how a new yarn style was developed in collaboration with a leading Turkish carpet manufacturer.
A new textured yarn style, required by fashion trends, was aimed by this major Turkish producer. The demand was developing for textured (frieze) yarns, but the yarns produced with the existing machines showed too high frieze effect, too randomly curved. A light, and especially even frieze effect was sought by the customer and the end-user. David Fauconnier, sales director of Dollfus & Muller, presented 3 key belts and felts developed in close partnerships with European textile machinery manufacturers.First an innovative non-marking and non-sticking dryer belt, second, a special endless palmer felt for ultra-sensitive fabrics with a felted soft surface and third a non-marking and non-sticking dryer belt for digital printed fabrics.
