Dilo Inc - Booth # 2141

Dilo Inc. will provide extensive information about recent machine concepts from the
DiloGroup companies DiloTemafa, DiloSpinnbau and DiloMachines. A major focus of the
new equipment is to improve operation efficiency, web quality and uniformity with
positive effects on all bonding processes.

In particular the following equipment will be presented:

o The DON dosing opener of DiloTemafa designed as a link between the
opening/blending operation and the card feeder. The DON ensures that fibre flow
to the feeder is both continuous and consistent.

DON dosing opener

o The MultiFeed card feeder from DiloSpinnbau which is available in working
widths which can exceed 5 m. This unit is equipped with a twin fibre delivery
system in the upper chamber which provides a more regular material flow. A two
roll opening stage allows fibre into the lower chamber with further compaction by
mechanical means and air movement derived from the permeable delivery apron.

Such a unit can deliver over 400 kg/m/hr of 1.7 dtex fibre with a cross direction
evenness CV of 2-3 % immediately prior to the card. Changeover times with this
Multifeed system are fast thus reducing downtime and web reprocessing
requirements. Machine direction evenness is controlled by a weighbelt scale
linked to the card infeed.

Multifeed can be used with all DiloSpinnbau card types in crosslapping
applications or with high speed cards in series for web formation prior to
hydroentanglement and thermal bonding.

MultiFeed with Twinflow

o The MultiCard - also designed by DiloSpinnbau - has roller infeed, a breast
cylinder with three worker/stripper pairs and a 1500mm main cylinder with a
further five roller pairs. This is a double doffer system with the possible activation
of condenser rolls for heavier webs. Such a card will handle the full range of fibre
fineness and length with a web speed potential up to 200 m/min and offers an
economic solution for cross laid nonwoven production.
The MultiCard enjoys a high production availability due to its easy and fast
accessibility for cleaning and maintenance work.

o Vertical (HL series) and horizontal (DL series) crosslappers available from
DiloMachines which provide infeed speeds up to 200 m/min (HL series)
eliminating bottlenecks in the production line. The Dilo DL lappers operate in an
infeed speed range of 80-160 m/min depending on application and specific
model used. In addition to high infeed speeds new apron arrangements have
been designed to give high layering precision based on excellent web control.
These machines have been supplied up to 14 m in width for papermachine
clothing applications.

Of course, the further development of needlelooms continues. Elliptical and circular
needlebeam movements are used to control drafts in the needling zone and also provide
high speed felt production in the 30-80 gsm weight range.

All these topics can be discussed in detail at our booth #2141
