Since the launch of the new Qualitex 800 visualisation system for the advanced Montex 850 stenter, it has met the highest acceptance and appreciation by textile machine operators and mill managers due to its intuitive and easy operation, according to Monforts.

Due to the overwhelming success and as a further step towards harmonisation, Monforts, a leading textile machinery specialist, has now launched this ‘child play’ machine operation tool for all its continuous dyeing ranges (Thermex) and Sanfor compressive shrinking ranges (Monfortex), as well as for all coating units (texCoat).

“Mill managers appreciate the optional data bank connection and the setup preprogramming,” the company explains.

Qualitex 800

Qualitex 800 features the ‘slider’ effect on a 23-inch screen for quick access to the relevant machine parameters and a free programmable dashboard for complete machine overview at a glance. It has all the intuitive features operators will be familiar with from touchscreen smart phones and tablets to make navigation extremely easy and cut down the time required for becoming familiar with the system.

Operation is via touchscreen and wheel effect selection and the dashboard can be individually configured to meet the exact needs of an operator’s tasks. All parameters for setting up a machine – the working width, the chamber temperatures, drive selections and energy settings – can be pre-selected to a comprehensive range of stored and well-proven recipes specific to the weight, construction and fibre content of the individual fabric being processed.

The machine can then be set to ‘Monformatic Mode’ to allow it to operate automatically, based on maximized pre-set values in respect of parameters such as machine speed, fabric dwell time and the fixation temperature for specific finishing operations.

A series of checks and balances has been built in for both the machine and the operator, with actual performance constantly compared to the pre-set values and compensatory measures introduced either automatically or by simple manual intervention.

All machine parameters are stored for further evaluation and the creation of historic trend charts and any potential problems are flagged up by instant alarms for later performance analysis.
