Monforts debut for ‘texCOAT’ coating range
At the recent Techtextil,
Monforts demonstrated its full range of new coating units -
incorporating Knife over roller/air system; magnetic roller
system; and printing head systems. Monforts Textilmaschinen
exhibited on 100m² joint booth together with Fong`s Europe GmbH.
The Monforts coating range ‘texCOAT’ is now available
worldwide and follows the recent acquisition of Timatec; who was
previously active mainly in the central European markets.
New applications and interesting references of the coating
units were presented during the show, including membrane- and
According to Monforts: Single sourced solutions ranging from
single sided applications of finishing agents such as, for
example, outdoor clothing and functionalization of textiles in
the home textiles sector, through to sophisticated lightweight
construction using innovative textile-based coated materials in
the automotive and aerospace industries.
The various coating modules can be used with or without a
magnet system. For working widths above 240 cm use of a magnetic
doctor blade is recommended.
The coating systems are available in four versions – basic,
multi-functional, universal and multi-functional.
The basic version, for example, offers manual adjustment in
two positions for air knife and roller knife coating and
printing without magnet for working widths of up to 240 cm.
The Multi-functional version with two position manual
adjustment is designed for magnetic knife coating with a working
width of up to 240 cm and screen printing.
The Universal version features motorised adjustment with
three positions for foam coating, roller knife coating and
magnetic knife coating; for working widths above 240 cm.
The fourth, Multi-functional version, with three position
motorised adjustment has been designed for direct fabric feed
coating applications using printing templates and operating
modes with roller knife and magnetic knife.
Monforts can also provide Ex-proof ranges for solvent-based
coatings and for high temperature processes up to 320°C such as,
for example, PTFE sintering.
The Monforts range of coating solutions also includes the
recently introduced Montex Allround.
Designed for constantly changing technical textile coating
process applications, the systems coating modules can be quickly
and easily changed by a specially designed undercarriage from
the side of the unit; allowing it to be adapted for different
All Monforts coating systems feature simple and user friendly
PLC techniques with on-screen visualisation for all operating
modes. Recipe management for different coating processes are
integrated into the proven Qualitex control system of the Montex
