Sultex Ltd., Switzerland, reports its new shedding machines ensure virtually vibration- and play-free operation, reducing stress on the machine and providing a perfect shed.
The Sulzer Textil EP11 tappet motion is available in two models: EP11sld and EP11, with and without automatic shaft leveling. The device is available in four-, six-, eight- and 11-shaft versions, and with weave repeats for four to six picks. It features cams for all standard weaves, allows for staggering, and operates at a maximum speed of up to 1,200 picks per minute.
Sulzer Textil SP6 and SP7 rotary dobbies, designed for use on rapier weaving machines, are very user-friendly and offer fast setting of shed lift and height, according to the company.
Features include a recirculating lubrication system to ensure an extended life even under maximum loads; patented play take-up technology that, coupled with minimal optimized accelerations, ensure smooth operation; and virtually unlimited repeat lengths.
The electronically controlled devices offer a maximum of up to 20 shafts in 12-millimeter pitch; are available with eight, 12, 16 or 20 drives; and operate at a speed of up to 700 picks per minute.
