Suntech Successfully Developed the Fastest Weaving Machine of the ST Series
The ST-ERL-808 weaving machine is the latest achievement in the ST series; its outstanding feature is its extremely fast. It also overcomes the problem of the weaving machine starting and running slowly. Suntech has made major improvements mainly in two areas: the frame of the loom and the weft joining system.
Industry research data reports in recent years show that there is still a big gap between Chinese looms and foreign advanced rapier looms in terms of working speed, movement accuracy and reliability. How to solve the contradiction between the working speed of high-speed rapier looms and the weaving performance, and make the products develop to high stability, high speed and high precision has become an urgent problem in the design and manufacture of high-speed looms in China.
After nearly 50 years of textile machinery manufacturing experience and nearly 10 years of domestic and foreign industry research on looms, Suntech Research Institute finally developed ST series rapier looms in 2021. This series of looms includes all the working performance of modern looms, matches various working environments, and Suntech's uniquely characteristic-innovation.

It also overcomes the problem of the weaving machine starting and running slowly. Suntech has made major improvements mainly in two areas: the frame of the loom and the weft joining system.
1. The special material and steel guide rail of the whole machine body can ensure the overall stability of the loom during high-speed operation.
2. The middle conjugate CAM is used to join the weft, which enhances the rigidity of the weft joining mechanism, increases the weft joining force, makes the movement more balanced, and is beneficial to high-speed weaving.
3. The PLC control system has functions such as automatic shutdown, automatic start, automatic weft finding, over-compensation, weft compensation, and automatic fault identification. It can run at full speed from the first beat-up, saving time and improving efficiency.
4. The super-large motor enables the maximum speed of the machine to reach 800rpm, and the stable speed is 550-650rpm.
The ST-ERL-808 is a breakthrough in original rapier loom technology and it will represent the highest level of the ST series and even the Chinese loom industry.
