As a leading global provider of automation solutions for warp preparation, Stäubli constantly focuses its research-and-development efforts to achieve one goal: to bring substantial benefits to weaving mills and make every process related to weaving preparation more efficient.
With its recent innovation, the BEAMPRO reading-in machine, Stäubli has tackled the process of sizing and added a highly efficient element for optimization within the overall process of warp preparation.
From the colored beam dyed sizing process to a completely drawn-in weaving harness – in just two process steps
In the multi-color weaving mill, when warps are produced by combining various single-colored sectional warp beams, they are typically assembled directly on the sizing machine. In this case, achieving the highest fabric quality requires exact yarn order, precise color repeat, and homogeneous warp structure. This is where BEAMPRO comes into play: Using BEAMPRO on the sizing machine, the warp can – even without a 1:1 lease – immediately afterwards be swiftly drawn in on a SAFIR automatic drawing-in machine featuring the AWC option Yarn Repeat Management, resulting in a high-quality, ready-to-weave weaving harness including warp beam in one set.
During the reading-in process in sizing, the BEAMPRO machine constructs warps with correctly ordered color stripes from beginning to end. This supports nearly sectional warping quality of the warp beam.
