The NG3S 28G 2/66 S5 for medium weight belts

The machines in Jakob Müller's NG3 series represent the world's fastest narrow fabric looms and a synonym for top performance and maximum efficiency.

The models in Müller’s NG3 narrow fabric loom series constitute a quantum leap in both a technical and technological development regard. The harness frame drive and motion, as well as the harness frames and healds are all designed to accommodate high speeds and now offer up to 2,750 min-1 for medium-weight articles (with the S5 weaving system). One of the main reasons for this outstanding performance is the new, wear-resistant NGV3 heald frame. Weft thread feeding, compensation and monitoring in combination with high-quality raw materials also serve to guarantee top narrow fabric quality and reduce standstill times. The patented compound needle system for the knitting needle selvedge is characterised by reliable, low-tension thread insertion. This results in both high efficiency and a simultaneous reduction in knitting needle breakages. Moreover, in the NG3S machine version, where the “S” stands for silent, the installation of additional insulation provides a cut in noise emissions of up to 10 db(A).    

The NG3S 28G 2/66 S5 offers the following advantages:

  •  High production performance with speeds of up to 2,750 min-1
  • The possibility of speed changes while the machine is running
  • A high machine utilisation effect in combination with low wear and a minimum maintenance requirement  
  • Patented, air-sprung harness frame motion
  • Highly reliable and reproduceable belt quality with selvedges of a very high standard  
  • Simple and clear operation and control
  • Excellent machine and operator safety

The COMEZ CT-8B/600NET crochet knitting machine

This highly efficient crochet knitting machine with latch needles produces nets, ladder-resistant knits and elastic and non-elastic technical and medical textiles. 

This highly efficient crochet knitting machine with latch needles produces nets, ladder-resistant knits and elastic and non-elastic technical and medical textiles.

Due to the use of latch needles, this machine is extremely versatile and can thus be employed for the processing of conventional synthetic yarns (polyester, polyamide, polypropylene), natural yarns (cotton, wool) and special fibres.  

The machine uses a 10-needle per inch gauge across a 600 mm working width. It is equipped with eight electronically controlled weft bars of which four can create a special weft pattern. In combination with the special set-up of the machine, the electronic drive of these bars allows differing stitch forms and weft patterns (open and closed stitches, as well as run stops and patterns with up to three-needle racking, etc.), which lend the warp knit structure a run-proof character that prevents tears and facilitates a stronger knit.    

One of the mechanically driven guide bars can be utilised for rubber threads, while two further mechanical guide bars are capable of providing a patterning stroke of up to 50 mm. These three guide bars can be operated separately from the electronically controlled versions.

The standard weft bars, which are powered by cams, can manufacture both jersey and double run-proof patterns. 

In the standard machine three thread feeds are used for elastic yarns, non-elastic weft threads and warp threads respectively, while product takedown is also regulated like a fourth feed. Moreover, apart from this standard arrangement, additional thread transports can be installed for elastic and non-elastic yarns.    

The electronic drives for the yarn feeds and the product takedown permit differing stitch densities per centimetre. Individual adjustments can be made to stitch size, as well as to differing values for thread/weft feeding and elasticity.

The COMEZ CT8B/600NET is fitted with the DATA CONTROL CONTROLLER, which manages all the necessary machine functions, monitors product data and enables the realisation of extended pattern repeats with a virtually unlimited number of lines. Patterns are programmed using exclusive PC textile software.

The MÜGRIP® MBJ6.1 rapier label loom

Owing to its smart technology, the MÜGRIP® convinces as a loom for the across the board production of labels with thermally cut selvedges.

The MÜGRIP® MBJ6.1 is far more than merely a product update of the proven MBJ6. Quite the contrary, as the development of new parts means that the machine’s productivity has been raised significantly

  • The new bar temple with gentle yarn clamping ensures that the fabric is adjusted perfectly to the dynamism of the weaving process. This means that the new MÜGRIP is a machine suitable for use across the complete range of labels with everything from very low to very high weft thread densities and extremely different weave structures in thicknesses of up to 2 mm. 
  • A sprung backrest roll prevents the overstretching of the warp threads in the upper shed and thus markedly reduces product losses.   
  • The (optional) IRO Luna X3 weft thread feeder offers a high level of operational comfort and ensures constant weft thread tension.

In addition, the new MBJ6.1 offers the same advantages as its predecessor, providing high energy efficiency and weft densities, protective weft thread feeding and extended rapier head and belt service life.

The MÜSONIC3 label slitting machine

The MÜSONIC3 ultrasonic label slitting machine further optimises the advantages of its predecessor version. What’s more, it is even easier to operate. 

As opposed to its predecessor, the MÜSONIC2, the MÜSONIC3 contains numerous reworked details that facilitate even better handling and material guidance. In addition, the machine has also been subjected to striking changes:                   

  • Proven Siemens technology is employed for machine control. This technology contains a human-machine interface (HMI) via a touchscreen with a high-definition graphic display.
  • A second monitor has been integrated for edge guidance. This means that every setting is clear and can be completed centrally.
  • A new ultrasound unit provides advantages with regard to heat resistance and thus also service life.
  • The new Profibus network allows improved error diagnosis.

The mymueller® service portal

This allows you to call up operating instructions, leaf through our spare parts catalogue and order parts online using a desktop, a tablet or a smartphone. 

Müller service is soon to go online with operating instructions, spare part catalogues and additional information regarding all the latest machines, which in other words add up to everything that you as a client need to operate your Müller machines.

The mymueller® portal functions on a browser base and will offer a high level of user comfort. The three-dimensional presentation of machines, components and single parts furnishes quick overviews and thus simplifies the finding and definition of the components to be purchased. You will be able to draw up individual shopping lists and templates for the repeat orders of fast moving parts and thus tailor the portal to precisely meet your needs. Moreover, naturally enough checks on the delivery status of your order will be possible at any time.

The ITMA ASIA 2018 will see the launch presentation of the new mymueller® service portal to a wider public. Subsequently, the portal will go on line and initially will possess the core functions of an overview of your machine park, operating instructions and spare part orders. In the coming years, it will then be supplemented with additional tools and information elements.
