PFAFF INDUSTRIAL will showcase its industrial sewing machines, designed for use in tire cord production.
KSL, a brand of PFAFF Industrial for high-tech engineering, specialises in processing technical and non-technical textile materials and leather.
The company produces tire cords for passenger car tires. As part of the complex construction process, each layer disappears under a rubber mixture during vulcanization.
The tire cord is one of the most important components of tire production, helping to ensure the tire stays in form even under enormous pressure. This means processing requirements for textile materials and the manufacturing machines is equally high.
PFAFF INDUSTRIAL and KSL machines KL 624, KL 220 and PFAFF 4509 include three solutions, which are pre-set to a tire cord field. The KL 624 is a specialist machine for sewing light transport belt fabric, as well as tire cord fabric and dipped liner.
The KL 220 is used for straight sewing, as required in heavy transport belt fabric as well as tire cord fabric and dipped liner. The sturdy steel portal allows the take-up of a cross-sewing head. The single-needle lockstitch zigzag high-speed seamer PFAFF 4509 has a drop feed for sewing twisted threads ideal for tire cord production, along with a powerful and reliable sewing machine head.
