Monforts presents Eco friendly denim
Monforts will be placing special
emphasis on its latest denim finishing technologies at
ShanghaiTex in Hall W5, Booth A11. The show highlights also
include the innovative ThermoStretch skewing unit avoiding the
expensive need for steam-operated cylinder dryers.
The new ThermoStretch skewing unit from Monforts offers new and
improved features for Eco friendly denim finishing avoiding the
excessive use of ‘expensive to generate’ steam that was
previously necessary for the cylinder dryers; thereby replacing
the need for steam-operated cylinder dryers.
It also provides a much gentler treatment of the denim fabric
during stretching than was previously achievable together with
an optimised fabric hand.
The ThermoStretch unit also continues to be available as a
‘long stretch’ unit but without heating properties for the
Monforts has in depth ‘knowhow’ in high speed processing
ranges for denim finishing with the ‘double rubber’ twin
compressive shrinking unit working in tandem for working speeds
even above 80 metres / minute.
The larger fabric content of the ThermoStretch unit in
combination with the ‘double rubber’ twin compressive shrinking
unit ensures minimum residual shrinkage values and highest
production speeds which could not be achieved before.
In the denim industry, this concept is making a significant
contribution to higher productivity and lower energy consumption
and the company has references in Vietnam and Mexico.
Monforts will also highlight its texCoat coating processes
and finishing of technical textiles, especially airbag materials
at the show.
The new ThermoStretch skewing unit from Monforts offers
new and improved
features for Eco friendly denim finishing.
Monforts is the only manufacturer that can offer completely
integrated coating lines from a single source with the coating
machine tailored to the subsequent Monforts drying technology.
The Monforts system has the shortest fabric path from the
coating unit into the stenter and offers all variations of
coating application systems, such as knife over air, knife over
roller, magnetic knife or printing head.
All of these options are also available in wider widths, with
the engineering from a single source.
Special equipment for heat recovery and innovative exhaust
air cleaning will also be on display.
