JUMBO-Textil: Provider for narrow textiles in the fitness and rehabilitation sector

There are good reasons why narrow textiles are used so frequently in the fitness and rehabilitation sector: they are flexible, safe, light, durable, skin-friendly and have a low injury potential. Essential components are JUMBO textiles: Elastics can be used to convert kinetic energy into potential energy. This is why elastic cords and cables are some of the essential components of almost all fitness equipment and tools. After all, it is the elasticity of the trampoline cords that gives the jumping-sheet its necessary force. Only elasticated expander cords create the desired resistance of the classic strength training equipment.

The force-elongation ratio of elastic cords and cables – like all other properties – is specified individually and optimally for the respective application. Depending on the specific requirements of the narrow textiles in the respective product, expert teams develop cords and cables made of high-tech fibres and on high-tech equipment: technical textiles that are a perfect fit for the equipment and its functions.

Furthermore, non-elastic cords – depending on type and design – are essential as tension and connection elements for the functionality of fitness equipment. Textile components are often also an integral part of the equipment technology as fastening or fixing systems.

JUMBO-Textil: Narrow textiles with a function

Technical textiles fulfil many functions: they hold, they lift, they fixate, they stretch – and they tension. In this function narrow textiles fulfil an important task in product development. And they offer significant advantages over metal or plastic tensioning devices such as springs, clamps or cable ties.

Properties
Textiles are light: a property that plays a central role in modern mobility. Textiles are flexible: from extremely high to extremely low elasticity: the force-elongation behaviour of elasticated narrow textiles can be precisely defined. Depending on the tensioning task to be performed. Textiles tension in tight packaging spaces: elastics can also be used where space is too tight for springs and clasps. Textiles are energy efficient: lightweight, with high tensioning force. Textiles are easy to handle: replace a connector spontaneously and without tools, quickly change the length or roll up and store a supply. And textiles are sustainable: natural fibres and rubber are natural and ecologically degradable raw materials; synthetic fibres can be completely produced from recycled materials.

Applications
Development teams in numerous industries leverage these properties for their products. For example, for flexible machine parts in mechanical engineering, for switch contacts in electrical engineering, for oscillation-capable locking systems in the construction industry, for noise- and vibration-free seating systems in the automotive sector or for grip rings in the toys industry.

Tasks
Particularly en vogue today, when we are spending more time than usual in our own homes: applications for narrow textiles in the furniture industry. They go far beyond the area of legacy home textiles: as tensioning elements in armchairs, sofas and chairs, as hinge solutions in cupboards, as fixation elements in extendable or folding tables. Narrow textiles are used for gripping tasks almost everywhere in the living room.

"JUMBO-Textil specialises in precisely implementing the individual requirements for defined force-elongation values of elasticated narrow textiles: we adapt the technical properties of our products precisely to the specific task and the respective raw materials," explains Werner Thiex, Sales Director Automotive. "Precise technical specification plus sustainable raw materials – this is a crucial combination in the 21st century".

Jumbo Textil: Textile solutions for Exoskeletons

Elastics for power support in medicine and the work environment
People who do physically hard work are relieved; people who are learning how to walk again after an accident or a stroke receive support; people with a handicap gain greater mobility – exoskeletons offer valuable support in many areas. An important component for "power suits": elastics by JUMBO-Textil.

Support construction with and without drive
An exoskeleton is a kind of robot that you wear: a construction of mainly textile components that is slipped over the body and strapped on. Integrated sensors register the body movements. These impulses are converted into electrically driven movements of the exoskeleton, which support or amplify the human movement. In addition, exoskeletons without drive are also being developed: these designs aim to transfer the weight of heavy tools or loads directly into the ground.

In addition, exoskeletons without drive are also being developed: these designs aim to transfer the weight of heavy tools or loads directly into the ground.

Tough requirements, individual solutions
Since the skeletons are worn on the body, the textiles and textile components used here need to be skin-friendly and as light as possible. The body's own temperature regulating systems must not be impeded. The contact surfaces must not create pressure points. And the exoskeletons must be individually adaptable to the user's body measurements.

High-tech elastics by JUMBO-Textil offer solutions for the development of exoskeletons – in terms of functionality, safety and wearing comfort: they hold, clamp, close and secure. They relieve and cushion movements and force impact. They illuminate and forward signals. The breathable narrow textiles stretch in both directions as required. They fit snugly on the body and follow every movement. Full-surface hook-and-loop-ready elastic tapes offer a simple, secure and individually adjustable fastening option. JUMBO-Textil consistently uses components made of plastic or light metal for textile components as fastening solutions. As a solution partner for demanding tasks – e.g., in occupational safety – JUMBO-Textil also developes cooled or heated textiles in collaboration with their customers. Also possible: the development of self-luminous narrow textiles – for additional safety.

Jumbo Textil: Textile Lösungen für Exoskelette

Elastics für die Kraftunterstützung in Medizin und Arbeitswelt
Menschen, die körperlich schwer arbeiten, werden entlastet; Menschen, die nach einem Unfall oder Schlaganfall wieder zu gehen trainieren, erhalten Support; Menschen mit Handicap gewinnen größere Mobilität – Exoskelette bieten in vielen Bereichen wertvolle Unterstützung. Wichtiges Bauteil für die „Kraft-Anzüge“: Elastics von JUMBO-Textil.

Unterstützungskonstruktion mit und ohne Antrieb
Ein Exoskelett ist eine Art Roboter zum Anziehen: eine Konstruktion aus vorwiegend textilen Komponenten, die über den Körper gestreift und angeschnallt wird. Integrierte Sensoren registrieren die Körperbewegungen. Diese Impulse werden in elektrisch angetriebene Bewegungen des Exoskeletts umgewandelt, die die menschliche Bewegung unterstützen oder verstärken. Daneben werden auch Exoskelette ohne Antrieb entwickelt: Diese Konstruktionen zielen darauf ab, Gewicht von schweren Werkzeugen oder Lasten direkt in den Boden abzuleiten.

Hohe Anforderungen, individuelle Lösungen
Da die Skelette am Körper getragen werden, müssen die verbauten Textilien und textilen Bauteile hautfreundlich und so leicht wie möglich sein. Die körpereigene Temperaturregulation darf nicht behindert werden. Die Auflageflächen dürfen keine Druckstellen erzeugen. Und die Exoskelette müssen sich individuell an die Körpermaße der Nutzer*innen anpassen (lassen).

Hightech-Elastics von JUMBO-Textil bieten Lösungen für die Entwicklung von Exoskeletten – in puncto Funktionalität, Sicherheit und Tragekomfort: Sie halten, spannen, schließen und sichern. Sie entlasten und dämpfen Bewegungen und Krafteinwirkungen. Sie leuchten und leiten Signale weiter. Die atmungsaktiven Schmaltextilien sind je nach Bedarf in beide Richtungen dehnbar. Sie schmiegen sich eng an den Körper an und machen jede Bewegung mit. Vollflächig klettfähige Elastikbänder bieten eine einfache, sichere und individuell anpassbare Befestigungsmöglichkeit. Für textile Bauteile als Befestigungslösung nutzt JUMBO-Textil konsequent Komponenten aus Kunststoff oder Leichtmetall. Als Lösungspartner für anspruchsvolle Aufgaben – z. B. im Arbeitsschutz – entwickelt JUMBO-Textil ¬mit seinen Kunden gern auch gekühlte oder beheizte Textilien. Ebenso möglich: die Entwicklung selbstleuchtender Schmaltextilien – für zusätzliche Sicherheit.
