Dürkopp Adler has unveiled M-TYPE DELTA, a fully digitised industrial sewing system at the recently held international trade fair Texprocess 2019 held in Germany.

The innovation features a new smart sewing kinematics which delivers the best sewing results without having to mechanically change the machine. “We produce the perfect seam with this machine, irrespective of the situation, without the need for conversion,” said, Thomas Brinkhoff, Director of Marketing, Dürkopp Adler.

The novelty reduces the need for training the operators, as the machines show the user with video support what to do and how to do it right. The sensor technology further ensures that virtually no loss of valuable materials occurs through bad stitching or missing thread.

Also, an integrated usage or time-controlled maintenance assistant indicates upcoming work, and the service work can be documented in the machine and retrieved at any time. This reduces machine downtime to an absolute minimum.

“With our groundbreaking new M-TYPE DELTA sewing system, we redefine industrial sewing and enable solutions that were previously unthinkable. The sewing machine becomes an assistant, partner, helper and communicator. This is a significant difference to all previous machine concepts and offers an incredible number of new possibilities,” said, Dietrich Eickhoff, CEO, Dürkopp Adler.

Also, on display was QONDAC, a production optimisation system for the textile industry. This customisable network solution captures meaningful performance data of all connected machines in real time, controls the automated setting of workstations and enables an extraordinary increase in productivity and quality in the shortest possible implementation time.

Moreover, on booth were few other developments in the sewing and welding technology. In apparel segment, class 756 A for the production of premium sports jackets, was on display featuring the new application for continuous zipper processing in exchange with outer jacket breast welt pocket.

Another highlight was the new PFAFF 8311 a new generation of ultrasonic welding machines that allows power to be measured and held constant during the welding process. The machine is out with some easy setup and handling process.

Equally new PFAFF 8303-600, was another technology showcased, which is the result of collaboration with TESA. It is a pressure-sensitive taping machine for sealing seams, for example, on dashboards and thermally sensitive seams. What makes this solution so special is that no heat is used, workpiece is protected and the impact on the visible side is minimal.

The company’s CNC turning head and robotic technology was the another attraction for the visitors. The solution is specially designed for the three key work processes (hemming, decorative stitching, attaching pockets) in the production of jeans pockets. Using the latest and most precise robot and control technology, entire processes are automated and operator interference is reduced to a minimum. The placement (insertion + removal) and the automatic seam tracking (curved seam) is realised with ONE robot cell.

On display was two automated CNC sewing units, in the form of the KL 110 and KL 311, which have a 360° rotating sewing head for perfect seams during multi-directional sewing.

The KL 110 is equipped with DACcad Professional, using which complex seam designs can be created, machine set-up costs can be reduced, and the quality of individual material holders can be increased. The KL 311 is presented together with the novel VISION SYSTEM.

During the sewing process, the intelligent Vision system compensates for tolerances which have been developed. Furthermore, with the KL 500 robotic unit (with KL 558 sewing head) KSL presented a complete 3D sewing cell, as used in production plants for the manufacture of vehicle dashboards all over the world. Using this unit, entire dashboards are stitched with high efficiency, process reliability and repeatability.
