Monforts to present new Eco-Applicator for knitted fabrics at ITM16

Monforts will be presenting a wide range of advanced innovations and developments, including the new version of the Eco-Applicator for knitted fabrics, at the ITM16 trade fair for textile machinery that takes place in Istanbul next month.

The company will showcase its latest innovations under the theme Thinking ahead – for sustainable solutions, promoting more productivity, more economy and more ecology in textile finishing.

Special highlights will be the new visualization system for stenters, new exhaust air cleaning modules integrated into the machines and advanced and energy saving denim finishing concepts with twin shrink compressive shrinking ranges, Eco Applicator and Eco Denim stretching field.

New Eco-Applicator

The Eco-Applicator liquor application process is designed to offer significant energy savings with reduced drying capacity required for a wide range of applications, such as felt finishes, coated materials and medical textiles, including nano coating, water repellancy, softeners, flame retardancy and insect repellancy.

A new version for knitted fabrics will be presented at the exhibition. It has been designed to apply a liquor to one side of the fabric; to apply a liquor to both sides of the fabric; to apply different liquors to either side of the fabric; or to apply two different liquors consecutively to a single side of the fabric.

Increased energy savings

The Monforts Eco Booster HRC, designed to minimise energy costs during drying and heat setting processes on stenters will be available, for the first time, for retrofitting to existing Montex installations.

By contrast with purely static heat exchanger modules, the new heat exchanger module actually cleans itself during operation; eliminating standstill times for maintenance, the manufacturer reports.

The Eco Booster permits a computer-controlled adaptation of the heat exchanger performance to the prevailing waste air stream. This optimised efficiency further is said to help further reduce the process costs.

New stentering chain

A completely maintenance free Montex horizontal stentering chain will be introduced. This new chain type complements the Montex chain systems for horizontal chain return. The new Montex Hybrid Chain will be also available for retrofit to existing Montex stenters.

New and further enhanced visualisation software with ‘finger tip’ control features will also be on display. It offers smart phone-type techniques for Monforts machine operators and is said to ensure smarter operating procedures. Available for Montex 8500 stenters, the new model also features a redesigned operator’s platform with ergonomic advantages during finishing and coating processes.

Denim ranges and coating solutions

A new denim stretching unit will also be presented for achieving smooth stretching under the highest processing speeds during denim shrinking and finishing being incorporated into well proven twin shrinking units with twin felt calender.
