Warping: Karl Mayer?s breakthrough
Karl Mayer has produced the first warp preparation machine for the warp knitting sector that can offer both: direct and sectional warping. The DS Opto-EC is an efficient machine with a broad portfolio.
A targeted look at different technologies with similar objectives often reveals synergistic effects that can be used to great advantage – as the example of the DS Opto-EC developed by KARL MAYER shows. This innovative warp preparation machine combines sectional warping in weaving preparation with direct warping in warp knitting preparation on the basis of a universal hybrid principle. The result of this clever combination is maximum flexibility and economic viability when producing warp beams for warp knitting.

WACKER to raise prices for dispersions
WACKER POLYMERS is to raise its prices for vinyl acetate-ethylene and ethylene-vinyl chloride-based copolymer dispersions of the VINNAPAS® and VINNOL® brand in the Americas region. As customer contracts allow, effective June 15, 2016, prices will be raised by up to five per cent. This measure has been necessitated by the increase in raw-material costs, especially for vinyl acetate monomer (VAM), a crucial raw material for the manufacturing of WACKER’s dispersions.
Teijin develops new masterbatch flame retardant
Teijin Limited has developed a new masterbatch flame retardant that combines Teijin’s phosphorus flame retardant FCX-210 with a polymer for use on fibre as well as resin. This granular type enables textile manufacturers to impart superior heat resistance to a wide range of products without the need to construct a dedicated facility or to add traditional flame retardants to raw materials in advance.
Prospects of bamboo fibre in textile
Prospects of bamboo application in textiles cover a wide area and it has tremendous scope for the textile and apparel segments, opine P Senthilkumar, AN Sai Krishnan and C Prabakaran.
Application of textiles covers the entire spectrum of day to day clothing to the functional textiles. Application of new fibres in textiles will be prerequisite for the manufactures to diversify the product. Cellulose are produced from a renewable resource that is pulp from the trees which can be cultivated on the land. Cellulose offers wider variety like comfort, water absorbency.

Development of filter fabrics for bag filters
The efficiency of the filter media used in a dust collector does not equate to dust collector efficiency; the filter media is just one component of the bag filter, and the filter bag is just one component of the dust collector system, reveal Dr HD Joshi and Pooja Shah. Bag house is a generic term for air pollution control equipment (APCE) that is designed around the use of engineered fabric filter tubes, envelopes or cartridges in the dust capturing, separation or filtration process. Bag houses can be found in virtually every industry – foundry and steel production, pharmaceuticals, chemical producers, food manufacturers, etc.
