Willy Grob presents cloth take-up
technology for weavers
Willy Grob Ltd.
develops and manufacturers cloth take-up systems for all
kinds of weaving machines and fabrics. The company is
active throughout the world as advisor and supplier to
both weaving mills and weaving machine manufacturers.
Willy Grob presented their latest batching unit type
SUPERIOR, which is a further development of Willy Grob product
family ‘Basic Series’.
The newest Willy Grob batching unit
type “SUPERIOR”offers optimal possibilities available to
the users to achieve best cloth roll quality. Beside the
latest drive technology, new functions such as Speed
Limiter SLBU and Intelligent Drive System IDSBU are
already integrated part of the standard execution. With
this concept, Willy Grob sets new standards in terms of
technology, equipment and customers’ benefit.
Even in the basic version, the newest
drive unit allows now speeds of up to 4.5m/min., which
offers a wide usability on an almost unlimited field of
The extended control panel with
JOY-STICK makes it easy for any user to operate the
machine without even reading a manual.
Supervising the tension of the cloth
with a dancing roller, a high-tech touch-free sensor
records immediately deviations. The system reacts without
delay and guarantees uniform tension from empty to full
The SUPERIOR comes up with a new fresh
design, supporting the progressive look of any modern
weaving mill. Additionally a tuning set is available which
allows to set further course in regard to the appearance.
SLBU Speed-Limiter by Willy Grob.
The new function‚ Speed-Limiter allows with the help of a
special turning knob, the individual setting of the winding
speed, for the prevention of slipping of the rollers. So the
problem of spinning rollers – especially at the beginning of the
winding process is eliminated. A much longer life time of the
rubber roll is achieved, and also the fabric damage due to
spinning rollers can be avoided.
The ‘Intelligent-Drive-System’ is another new function for
efficient prevention of stopmarks in the fabric.
The installation of latest frequency converter technology
allows smooth stop and start characteristics of the winder in
case of a weaving machine stoppage.
On the one side the batcher reduces the set tension
automatically when on hold, on the other side the drive smoothly
starts, running once the weaving machine continues its
operation. The set tension is reached by a continuous increase
of the force and not by a sharp step, which could be transferred
via cloth to the loom.

FLEXPENDULUM™ - System
This new design of the cloth deflection just before the
winding position makes it possible to choose between different
deflection systems – according to the requirements of the
fabrics. Available options include:
fix spreader bar.
fix, smooth steel bar.
rotating roll, with ball bearing.
All three types are freely exchangeable.
The new generation of batching units allows remote
diagnostics and parameter check world-wide.
Connected over a modern CAN-BUS all relevant data can be
downloaded either within the mill or over Internet by the Willy
This offers various advantages, such as immediate analysis in
case of malfunction, proactive problem discovery or fine tuning
of parameters thanks to direct uploading of adjusted data.
Network free diagnostic versions:
Laptop with f.o.c. up-/download software.
Keypad (easy back-bag architecture).
