German market leader ZSK is known for industrial embroidery machines. It’s latest Technical Embroidery System JCW 0100-500 is a laying machine for fibers and wires. It offers an active wire and fiber supply system, a pneumatic clamping and stretching system, an automatic pull through system and it masters the automatic change of different medias. Many more options like a wire hit detection system or an automatic bobbin changer are available for ZSK’s technical embroidery systems with up to 11 heads.
Laying wire with this system is cost efficient, more reliable and environmentally friendly. Without any damage of the textile’s characteristic signals like fill level, movement or temperature can be measured and relayed. Various materials like carbon, glass and aramid fibres and wires can be processed. Single layered rovings are fixed to the base material by stitching. During the process, the base material is moved by the pantograph, enabling to lay rovings in any direction and quantity.
Another major advantage of this new process is the ability to lay rovings as per distribution of forces within a structural component. Some of ZSK's other offerings include the smallest embroidery machine, the Sprint, and multi-head tubular arm embroidery machines from the Jafa series.
