Leading European manufacturer of circular knitted fabrics Campos has recently installed a Brückner Power-Frame stenter with vertical transport chain for its production plant in Ontinyent, in the Spanish province of Valencia. Campos has specialised in mattress fabrics and stretchable knitted fabrics since it was founded in 1997 and is a global pioneer in ‘Damask stretch’ fabrics.

In 2020, the Spanish manufacturer decided to finish all of the textiles it produces in house. What applied to Campos’ circular knitting machines also became the top priority for its finishing systems - only the best manufacturers were considered. A visit to Brückner in Germany to gain an understanding of the production of the lines, as well as the technology, convinced Campos of the professionalism of the German market leader in the field of dry finishing. Therefore, in 2023 Campos bought its first Brückner Power-Frame stenter frame with vertical transport chain.

The countered heating and ventilation elements in the Brückner Power-Frame stenter ensure a completely uniform air impingement across the entire width of the fabric. The Power-Frame impresses with the highest possible drying performance and a process control system tailored to the fabric quality thanks to the technically mature and proven split-flow ventilation system and low specific energy consumption. An extremely robust and low-maintenance chain ensure a long service life and low wear.

The decisive factor for Campos was not only the quality of Brückner’s machines, but also the German company’s philosophy. Both companies are family-run in the second generation and attach great importance to treating employees and the environment with respect and appreciation.
