A new 8-shuttle circular loom that produces high quality tape fabric for heavy duty applications will be launched by Starlinger at this year’s Chinaplas in Guangzhou, 20-23 May.

The "operator-friendly" RX 8.0 loom is said to have low maintenance and spare part requirements and be cost-efficient. Based on the proven Starlinger SL and alpha loom concepts, the new machine "ensures high quality output, easy handling and smooth operation due to electronically controlled settings and well-engineered technical features". Use of new materials is claimed to reduce strain and friction on the tapes, and increase the lifetime of wear and tear parts, keeping maintenance and spare part expenses down.

The RX 8.0 is designed primarily for the production of PP and HDPE tape fabric for heavy duty applications such as FIBCs, tarpaulins and geo- and agrotextiles. However, it can also also produce lighter fabrics down to 55g/m².
