Techtextil Innovation Prize 2011 –

The new ORW technology made by Lindauer DORNIER GmbH

In November 2010, the new ORW technology developed by Lindauer DORNIER GmbH was presented for the first time on the occasion of the 4th Aachen-Dresden International Textile Conference.


On the subject of “New way of producing textile fabrics thanks to process integration in the weaving procedure”, Dr. Adnan Wahhoud explained the basics of this technology, its fields of application and how it was put into practice on the latest generation of DORNIER air-jet and rapier weaving machines.


Stitch weaving was presented on an air-jet weaving machine for the production of home textiles, multiaxial weaving on a rapier weaving machine for technical textiles.


Prior to the Techtextil which will take place from May 24 to 26, 2011, an international jury awarded this year’s Techtextil Innovation Prize in the category “New technologies” to Dr. Adnan Wahhoud, head of the development department for air-jet weaving machines, and his team of Lindauer DORNIER GmbH for their Open Reed Weave (ORW) technology.

During the Techtextil, several examples of application will be shown on a special exhibition space.
