Comez, now a subsidiary of Jakob Müller, has been demonstrating its EL-32 multi-axial narrow fabric machine making reinforcements for composites at this week’s Techtextil show in Frankfurt, Germany.

With a 32-inch-wide needle bed allowing rapid article changeovers, it is characterised by simple handling, a robust design and a compact superstructure and can employ a wide range of raw materials including carbon, glass and aramids.

The electronic control of the thread guides and the knit take-off enables the use of differing stitch densities (stitch rows/cm) and elasticity values in the same article. Moreover, different weft and warp threads can also be introduced.

In addition, the EL-32 machine is fitted with a data control controller, which drives a new generation of actuators with an outstandingly dynamic characteristic and high positioning precision. The controller allows the management of all necessary functions and monitors the product data and long pattern repeats, which extend to a virtually unlimited number of stitch rows.  

Pattern design and processing take place using Comez Draw 3 textile software or System.Win for PCs.
