Peru based Texfina has recently installed a third stenter with vertical chain from German machine builder Brückner into operation at its Callao factory. The new machine, which is certified to OEKO-TEX Standard 100, has eleven compartments and an air/air heat-recovery system.

A very homogeneous air flow, perfect temperature distribution and very low specific energy consumption are standard features of all Brückner machines. Precisely reproducible finishing results thanks to complete automation and recipe management in the system, which Texfina uses almost exclusively for heat-setting sports and performance wear, complete the picture.

The team of Brückner technologists did an excellent job, recognized our needs and configured the machine optimally

Chains, chain rails and pin bar carriers are extremely robust and low maintenance, helping to make this machine a particularly sustainable investment. A pre-wash compartment before the fabric enters the stenter ensures better fabric quality and reduced emissions.

Raul Saba (President Texfina) is extremely satisfied with the cooperation. "The team of Brückner technologists did an excellent job, recognized our needs and configured the machine optimally. It is an enrichment for our production and a guarantee for the quality of our products," he says.

Regina Brückner (CEO Brückner commented: "We are delighted about the trustful cooperation with this successful customer. The cooperation with Texfina promises sustainable success and forward-looking results for both sides."

Texfina in founded in 1947 and Brückner founded in 1949 can both look back on impressive success stories spanning more than seven decades. The two family-run companies are pioneers with innovative power and in difficult times, Texfina has put the third Brückner line into production.

Texfina began with hand-knitted sweaters made by the great-grandmother of the current managing directors, which were exchanged for food at the local market. Subsequent generations then transformed the company into one of the world's leading manufacturers of functional knitted fabrics.

Top rate specialists and advanced machinery as well as several patents are the basis of the company's success. Texfina supplies customers world-wide with tailor-made textiles that can be made hydrophobic, antibacterial, dirt-repellent or with UV protection. With the help of efficient management systems and IT, Texfina also strives for ecological sustainability and promotes employee commitment through a progressive organizational culture.

Operating worldwide and owner-managed, with 75 years of tradition and experience, Brückner not only develops, produces, and sells systems for coating and finishing apparel textiles, technical textiles, glass fibre, nonwovens and floor coverings, but has also been developing systems for heat-recovery and exhaust air purification for many years.
