Technical textiles for the most diverse applications

Woven technical textiles are being used in many industries today, and the potential fields of application are far from exhausted. It’s now possible to mix a great variety of yarn materials into a woven fabric or produce innovative spacer fabrics or multi-layer fabrics with variable thickness. Opportunities abound for creative compositions that can open the door to new markets.

What follows are several examples of technical textiles with specific properties. The production of these textiles places special requirements upon weaving machines – requirements that are fulfilled by Stäubli TF weaving systems.

Heavy multi-layer fabrics

These fabrics must meet specific requirements for high stiffness and wear resistance. These properties can be attained by weaving with high beat up forces and with consistently high warp tension and density.

Reinforcing fabrics for lightweight applications

Fail-safe performance, high stiffness and optimum absorption properties are very important basics (amongst others) that the woven fabric must provide to ensure a perfect and reliable end product. Key success factors here are gentle yarn handling and exact positioning and alignment without crimp of the yarns.

Spacer fabrics

When producing spacer fabrics, uniform spacing between layers and optimised compressive and shear strength are a must. Precise shed formation and constant high warp tension support an optimal production process.

Multi-layer fabrics with new types of structures and material mixes

A prerequisite for the production of any completely new type of these technical fabrics is the free choice of yarn materials and unlimited combination options – also, high flexibility in terms of structure in both the warp and weft.
