Weaving for Excellence
All our jackets are woven on our circular weaving looms, which are the preferred looms globally. Our looms are constantly upgraded to meet demands in the hose market and have over 80 years of quality development expertise.
Our background gives us unique know-how in loom technology, yarn, twisting, and weave construction.
Our HM604 is known worldwide in the industry as the benchmark for circular looms. The versatile qualities of this model are what make it so popular with lay-flat hose manufacturers.
Our 3 shuttle loom delivers high output, while also maintaining the flexibility to produce smaller and larger diameters.
Small and compact is a great description of our HM1500. The ideal choice when you want quality and speed without compromising on floor space.
