KL 110 Headbag

Process reliability for up to 3,500 x 1,000 mm

(PresseBox) (Kaiserslautern, ) When manufacturing high-quality car seats (decorative stitching) and airbags (functional and safety-relevant seams), the manufacturers (car manufacturers and automotive suppliers) count on the performance, quality and process reliability of the KL 110 CNC-controlled sewing unit. The customer list of the machine reads like a „Who is Who“ of the automotive industry featuring prestigious brands from all continents. Particularly when it comes to manufacturing airbags, the industry has in recent years become very sensitive due to a scandal (deaths, exploding airbags, recalls) involving a well-known Japanese airbag-manufacturer. The manufacturers demand solutions with customized individual and process-reliably controlled applications that ensure maximum reproduction of their airbags. Certainly one reason why the KL 110 has become a true „market performer“ is, because the manufacturers trust the technology and knowhow of KSL based in Lorsch/Germany. Over the past 2.5 years more than 100 systems were sold around the world. KSL documents and implements all individual customer requests/applications during the project phase. Over 80 of these machines were assembled at the PFAFF INDUSTRIAL-facility in Kaiserslautern. Here the space capacities for production and assembly are bigger.

The KL 110, a freely programmable CNC-sewing unit featuring a turning head, is offered either in a one- or two-needle version and generates up to 2,800 stitches per minute. Due to the tangential orientation of the sewing head into random sewing directions, complex seams may be produced in top quality as back stitch or chain stitch. At the TEXPROCESS 2017 in Frankfurt, the machine was presented with a barcode-scanner system to record data in multiple applications and immediate analysis via the HMI-operator panel. The turning head-technology is also used for applications beyond airbags resp. car seats e. g. for sophisticated decorative stitching operations on a KL 311 (virtually identical in construction to the KL110) at a European manufacturer of luxury goods. Likewise, the door panels and seats of the new model of a British luxury car manufacturer are sewn using a KL 311 with turning head.
