Making processes more cost-effective, sustainable, transparent, and above all more efficient, is exactly the aim of using sensors and controls at textile processes. By this, textile producers are enabled to save large amounts of energy, improve product quality and make even complex processes more traceable and reproducible. The right place to discuss those important aspects is Techtextil 2024 in Frankfurt. At the upcoming exhibition which takes place from 23 to 26 April 2024, international exhibitors present trends and news textile technologies.

“Processes become more complex, customer requirements higher & well-trained staff scarce. Technologies as sensors & controls gain importance for efficient operation.
Our new process control system PLEVATE pro is designed to meet exactly those needs. It enhances operation even at complex production lines with different modules, enabling our customers traceablility and easy operation to save energy and improve the product quality”,
states Dr. Ralf Pleva, Managing Director.

Hereby, tolerances can be set and parameters saved and loaded within the integrated recipe management system. The customizable system provides solutions to many processes, e.g. a production line with a foulard, vacuum, predryer, coating, and stenter frame.

An integration of the following PLEVA devices is possible:

  • Exhaust humidity FSX for great energy savings.
  • Fabric/air temperature TDS for transparent drying/heat-treatment processes.
  • Residual moisture RR, RF/AF for improved fabric quality and efficiency.
  • Application moisture/coating AF for savings of valuable chemicals.
  • Pick/course density CAM for high-quality fabric.

The all-seeing eye – CAM series 400: For the assessment of quality parameters but also weft-straightening, precise detection, and advanced image processing are the most important aspect. The brand new CAM offers cutting-edge technology with many novelties for the best results: Completely new lighting with increased brightness and special lighting possibilities allows a detection of all kinds of fabric – independent from density or color. On top, it is also designed as a retrofit for existing PLEVA systems with easy connectors and is fitted for even the harshest conditions thanks to an improved housing design.

Besides those new developments, PLEVA also offers special versions of sensors for special demands such as the TDS sensor for fabric and air temperature fitted for EX-zones, state-of-the-art interfaces like Profinet, and the PLEVA Remote Service for even faster support of your production. Whether for standard applications or demanding processes, PLEVA is your partner for the sustainable and efficient production of tomorrow.

PLEVA looks forward to showing our highlights in hall 12.0 booth C41 during Techtextil 2024.
