State-of-the-art machinery, including new machines from every segment, was presented from Müller’s complete range — from production through finishing and making-up. The NF…ds uses brand-new technology to produce velvet ribbons with pile on both sides. Other machines on display included the NF80 2/310, used to make elastic and non-elastic products; the MDR42 M24, featuring an electronic picot device and electronic warp guide bars; and the latest-generation LCFR2 label-cutting and -folding machines.
The new Jakob Müller Museum features 51 machines representing the 200-year history of the narrow fabrics sector.
The company used the opportunity to officially open the Jakob Müller Museum. The facility features 51 exhibits including machinery used in the manufacture of ribbons and related products over the past 200 years. During the opening ceremony, Christian Kuoni, CEO, Müller, not only looked back over the company’s 120-year history, but also gave an optimistic outlook for this segment of the textile industry, with its enormous potential as it expands to new applications. A review of the development of the narrow fabrics industry and the evolution of the machinery was presented by Professor Urs Meyer, ETH Zürich. In addition, Erich Essig presented his new book on the production of narrow fabrics — “Mübook, Vol. 2, Narrow Fabric Needle Loom Technology.” The book features three sections focusing on technology, technical calculations and weaving theory.
