New DORNIER air-jet terry weaving machine FT-ServoTerry®

Lindauer DORNIER GmbH lately introduced the FT electronic control for the rapier and air-jet weaving machines successfully into the market. With it, significant improvements as to energy consumption and machine performance could be realized . This electronic control is now also available for the DORNIER air-jet terry machine FT ServoTerry®.

This is however not the only new feature. Customers’ requests have been also taken into account during development improving performance and handling of the terry weaving machine decisively.

The FT control stands for compressed air savings of up to 30%. Handling is easier and access to machine components improved for the operator. Two nozzles controlled by a single valve has become standard and the air consumption reduction device DORNIER Ecovalvecontrol® complements the intelligence of the control in order to further reduce air consumption.

In addition, two different tank pressures can be chosen for the relay nozzles now, making it possible to optimize weft insertion parameters for the weaving of the terry base fabric and the borders further reducing weft breaks and allowing higher insertion performance.

The back-rest roll unit and pile control have been completely redesigned. Access to the rear part of the weaving machine has been considerably improved and handling facilitated . In response to requests by many of our customers, a split warp stop motion for ground warp ends and pile ends can be used in this terry weaving machine again . Care has been taken as to maintain the perfect DORNIER pile control for a constant pile height.

Furthermore, the patented gentle terry beat up has been integrated in the DORNIER ServoTerry®, guaranteeing production of high-quality towels even at high speed, with low yarn breakage values, constant pile height and impeccable loop formation.
A positive control has been developed – this is unique in a terry weaving machine – for the weaving of plissé folds in the border which provides a gentle yarn processing .

Dornier ServoTerry

With this new air-jet terry weaving machine DORNIER has conceived a future-oriented machine for our customers satisfying highest quality demands and convincing by the flexibility inherent in DORNIER machines.
