    About our divisions: three activities - one Group

    Textile machinery

    Stäubli has been developing and producing high quality systems for the weaving industry since 1892. The Group provides innovative, technological solutions that satisfy a wide range of clients.

    Frame weaving

    Stäubli shedding systems for frameweavers (cam motions and dobbies) enable the production of all kinds of woven fabrics ranging from simple patterns to technical fabrics and sophisticated designs.

    Jacquard weaving

    A full range of Jacquard machines is available for weaving garments, furnishing fabrics, terry towelling, labels or other fabrics – especially those featuring sophisticated patterns. Jacquard installations are rounded off by tailor-made Jacquard harnesses.

    Weaving preparation

    Automatic drawing-in machines draw the warp threads into the weaving frame and facilitate fast and efficient article changes. Warp tying and leasing installations contribute to higher flexibility, productivity and weaving quality. The components of the UNI-LINK system complete tying, leasing and drawing-in installations and further optimize process rationalization.

    Carpet weaving

    Schönherr carpet machines provide maximum flexibility for the production of all types of single- or double-face pile or loop carpets. The double-gripper carpet weaving machines are equipped with Stäubli cam motion or dobby mechanisms and Jacquard machines.


    As one of the leading manufacturers of quick connector systems, Stäubli covers connection needs for all types of fluids, gases and electrical power. These standard or specific products (single and multi-connectors, tool changers, quick mold change systems) combine performance, quality, safety, dependability and durability.

    All fluids

    Stäubli connectors are modular in design and can handle an extensive range of fluids, pressures, temperatures, vacuum and challenging work environments. Typical applications include compressed air, breathing air, hydraulics, alternative energy, fluids and gas.

    Tool change systems

    A complete range of tool change systems combining optimized productivity and a high level of safety.

    Electrical power and data

    Stäubli Electrical Connectors develops and produces countless variations of electrical connectors for power, data transfer, fiber optics, coaxial applications and photovoltaics.

    Environmental responsibility and safety features

    Leak-proof and reliable, Stäubli connectors satisfy the highest safety standards. The safety mechanism, pioneered by Stäubli, prevents many accidents in the workplace. The "drip-proof" technology, used in most product ranges, helps to keep working environments pollution-free.
