Crealet Displaying New KAST ECR Solution At Techtextil 2024

Crealet, a manufacturer of sophisticated warp feeding technology and tailored solutions will present its latest developments for technical textile applications at Techtextil 2024 in Frankfurt, Germany.

Crealet’s mission is to empower narrow fabric weaving with a consistent high-quality level and makes continuous efforts to develop innovative and cost-effective solutions to meet customers’ needs.

The new KAST ECR solution, presented for the first time at ITMA 2024, is an affordable warp feed system that fulfills the requirements of narrow fabric weaving mills.

The KAST ECR warp let-off device keeps the warp tension automatically consistent and eliminates the need for manual adjustment.

The warp tension is measured with load cells and the braking force is regulated by continuously changing the rope tension so that a uniform warp tension is achieved from the full to the empty package.

By retrofitting the common rope brakes, as used to manually manage warp thread tension, with the ECR control unit, a system is created that automatically adjusts the warp tension during the weaving process.

The KAST ECR control unit displays the set and actual values of the warp thread tension both numerically and graphically.

Specifically developed for narrow weaving, this control meets highest demands and can be easily and quickly adapted to customer and product requirements.

A significant future-oriented advantage of the KAST ECR solution is the reproducibility of the production data.

In technical textiles, the Swiss company develops feeders for filter fabrics, geotextiles, aerospace textiles, and medical textiles.

The production of these fabrics is often subject to more stringent requirements, with warp tension playing an important role and requiring the use of appropriate control devices.

Crealet also offers solutions for the electronic feeding of thread groups to weaving machines for marking fabrics for further processing and preventing wavy selvedges.

Crealet will be present at the joint stand of the Swiss Textile Machinery Association in Hall 12.0, Stand B01.
