The potential of Industry 4.0, in
combination with the drive to reduce waste and minimize raw
materials usage, has led to some significant new developments.
Monforts will be present at Hall 6 at booth H6/D05 will
highlight the company’s latest Qualitex 800 control system,
which along with the Web-UI app, allows the remote visualisation
of Monforts technologies via smartphones and tablet devices.
The new Monforts Qualitex Web-UI provide machinery
data visualization for
remote control on handheld devices.
“We are already embracing many Industry 4.0 principles in our
approach to new machine concepts and the Qualitex 800 has all
the intuitive features that operators will be familiar with from
touchscreen devices,” explains Monforts Vice-President of Sales
and Marketing Klaus Heinrichs. “It is making navigation
extremely easy for operators, cutting down the time required for
becoming familiar with a new system and allowing complete
control of all machine parameters.”

application of the selected finishing chemicals and the
As an alternative to conventional padding, especially for
wet-in-wet solutions, the Monforts Eco Applicator can
significantly reduce the amount of finishing chemicals required
prior to the stretching and skewing of the denim fabric.
In many textile mills globally, the cost of energy for
running integrated manufacturing lines – especially those for
fabric finishing that can involve numerous sequences of heating
and subsequent drying – is now eclipsing the cost of paying
people to operate them.
The ability of the Eco Applicator to significantly reduce
energy costs has seen it rapidly accepted on the market.

“The Eco Line system reduces energy requirements and losses,
increases thermal transfer and keeps the drying energy on the
textile material longer,” says Monforts Area Sales Director and
Head of Product Management for Denim Hans Wroblowski,“As a
result energy savings of up to 50% are being achieved.”
Monforts is also the only manufacturer which is able to offer
completely integrated coating lines from a single source. At
ITMA Asia + CITME 2018, the company’s specialists will be on
hand to explain how its latest coating heads are being tailored
to drying technology for maximum benefits.

multi-functional coating heads for both its industrial texCoat
and all round coating units. The module options include those
for screen printing, magnetic coating and knife coating, either

“Our system has the shortest fabric path from the coating
unit into the stenter and all of these options are available in
wider widths,” says the company’s Head of Technical Textiles,
“Whatever your company’s specialism, we have the technologies
and the process knowledge to help you take your business to the
next level,” adds Klaus Heinrichs,“We look forward to meeting
customers old and new in Shanghai.”
