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.
