Texprocess 2017 – Frankl & Kirchner: A “fancy app“ with real added value

Efka introduces the most powerful sewing machine motor ever and a fancy app with real added value.


Efka presents the most powerful sewing machine motor ever


“Smart hardware“ meaning flexible and compatible thus enabling „smart applications“. At the last Texprocess Efka introduced this fundament for the future with the new 6xx Series controls and new programming panels with communication via smartphone or tablet app. And this is only the beginning. That is why the first highlight is the new Efka app which redefines the term „user friendly“.

Functions such as changing parameters and sending those back and forth between controller and smartphone via NFC were already available. The remote maintenance application has been extended in accordance with Industry 4.0 so our technicians can now connect to the control via Bluetooth and the app. Problems can be analyzed more easily and quickly in real-time and are directly addressed by bi-directional communication. Other functions such as video training or signal tests are planned and the functionality of the app will be steadily expanded going forward. Best of all, using the Efka app is free and available for all our customers.

The second highlight at this year’s show is the introduction of our most powerful motor yet produced – the new DC1280. With 16 Nm of torque at 2,000 RPM, this motor is designed for the most demanding applications and is compatible with all the AB6xx controls like our other motors. Efka’s unique Direct Drive technology is another show highlight with a growing number of head mount brackets increasingly being used. In addition is the new development for fully retractable sewing machines.
