The French weaving company Les Tissages de Charlieu (LTC) installed 40 new Stäubli SX PRO Jacquard machines in the first quarter of 2023. This was not the company’s first order for Stäubli Jacquard machines, but this time the investment was part of LTC’s global ESG (environmental, social & governance) strategy.
Environmental impact was a major criterion for LTC in choosing these new Jacquard machines. Designed for lower electrical consumption, the Stäubli SX PRO Jacquard machines perfectly suit the company’s sustainability and ESG goals. Another decisive factor was the durability of Stäubli Jacquard machines. LTC has been using Stäubli machines for decades, so they know they can count on extreme longevity of the machinery. LTC has Stäubli Jacquard machines in their mill that are still running after 20 years.
LTC’s 40 new SX PRO Jacquards are mounted on recently installed weaving machines that the company uses mainly to process recycled yarns within a circular economy scenario. LTC and Stäubli are both concerned about the future, and both companies are taking steps in the right direction – LTC with its global ESG strategy, and Stäubli with its high-efficiency, durable solutions.
