In the extrusion facility, as well as single-filament round and flat threads, SAATI manufactures the shrouded yarn KUGAFIL and also produces technical fabrics from single and multi-filament threads as well as from spun yarns for widely differing applications.The high-tech product range includes filter and sieve fabrics, support and carrier fabrics, insect protection fabrics and greenhouse covers, bath fabrics, spacing fabrics and double fabrics.
All fabrics are supplied not only on the roll, but also according to customer specification in the form of pre-cut or stamped parts, and sewn or welded. Widely differing fabrics are shaped using the latest sowing, stamping, cutting and welding techniques. In this way, filter cloths are produced for filter presses, covers for drum filters, filter segments for horizontal and vertical disc filters, special filter strips, sieve bags and hoses, conveyor belts, silo inserts for bulk goods of all kinds, insoles for shoes of all kinds - there are virtually no limits to the sizes and designs. The repertoire extends from the smallest lint filters via acoustic covers for loudspeaker systems to the welding of several layers of different saran® fabrics, to name just a few examples. The wide range makes it clear that SAATI seeks innovative as well as individual solutions together with the customer.
Various steps, such as the previously essential production of paper patterns on a 1:1 scale, can now be dispensed with. As can the laborious transferring of dimensions onto the fabric. Compared with the time required for manually manufactured cloths, production quantities can be tripled with the L-2500.
Rolf Brüggemann is impressed by laser material processing:
'For us, the laser provides the ideal interface between individual customerrequirements in the completion of parts both in small-batch production and in largebatches, and has therefore become a key machine in the production facility.'
