Digital textiles

Acker expands and digitalises its machine farm

On a floorspace of 6,300 square meters, Acker Textilwerk GmbH develops and produces technical knitted fabrics of the highest quality. The company demonstrates its special experience and expertise with innovative finishing technologies for its knitted fabrics according to specific customer requirements. In a more flexible way and faster than ever: Acker has expanded its machine farm by two high-performance systems and a new sample program.

More flexibility. Higher speed. Greater capacity.

An HKS 4-M and an HKS 4-M EL have been in operation at the production site in Seligenstadt near Frankfurt since the beginning of May. Acker has invested a total of nearly 500,000 euros in the expansion of its machine farm. The high-performance warp knitting machines produce elastic and non-elastic textiles. The four guide bars allow different materials to be combined to meet very special and demanding customer requirements. The electronic system offers a wide range of patterning options.

At 2,200 revolutions per minute, the powerful HKS Duo noticeably increases the flexibility, speed and capacity of the machine farm. Acker has always been broadly positioned. For customers in a wide variety of industries - from automotive and medical to the clothing industry. The latest investment enables the company from Germany's Hesse region to implement its special solutions even faster.

First-class technology, first-class textiles: The HKS 4-M EL produces to the highest quality.

Fast, flexible, precise: digital sample creation

Plant manager Joachim Rink is highly satisfied: "The new systems are state of the art. The machines are running perfectly and producing first-class quality. We have thus pushed our efficiency even further forward. The digitally controlled HKS 4-M EL loads the data from our new sample program. The sample is created with it and visualized in advance. We can thus see the resulting sample before it is produced and are therefore not only extremely fast when it comes to creating and changing the sample, but also very flexible. An enormous gain - for us and our customers!"
