Stäubli launched the TIEPRO tying machine in 2019. Continuing development made this machine a highly reliable and important component in many mills. And now, Stäubli's new TIEPRO warp-tying machine incorporates special and unique features.

Any type of tying machine to be used in a mill must first be placed on the warp-tying frame at the weaving machine. An operator has to dock the machine by hand. Equipped with robotics, TIEPRO docks itself to the old and the new warp sheets.

Afterwards, the operator can simply confirm start-up by pushing the start button – and automatic warp tying begins. Thus, TIEPRO leaves staff more time to oversee the weaving hall or handle other tasks.

Also, before tying and during the warp stretching on the tying frame, typically, the yarns of new and old warp sheets don’t align precisely. This fact can require time-consuming effort during the tying process, while TIEPRO could easily handle misalignments of up to 10 mm, ensuring precise and quick preparation.

TIEPRO incorporates a revolutionary form of automatic Double End Detection (DED) as a standard feature. Stäubli DED detects double ends automatically before the warp yarn is cut. This feature is very unique.

Another standard feature is the Auto Reverse function, which works in conjunction with DED during the yarn separation process. Double ends caused e.g. by sticky yarns are detected by the sensor, immediately extracted, and separated. This process is done automatically within milliseconds and is virtually impossible to follow visually. It requires no operator intervention. Once done, the yarn separation process automatically restarts.

Furthermore, warp tying machines typically operate using separation needles. TIEPRO is the only one in the world that uses separation cones. The cones are made of top-grade, long-lasting materials, sure to last for many years. This is a great advantage over conventional machines, which require regular replacement of the separation needles. Another benefit is that TIEPRO does tying without an oil bath. These two attributes make for low maintenance and high availability in the mill.

The TIEPRO warp tying machine covers a broad range of applications and handles warps with or without a 1:1 lease. The overall concept of the machine makes for less operator intervention, increased efficiency in warp tying, and high operational availability.
