Baldwin Textile Spray Applicator for Asia
Following last year’s successful introduction of its Textile Spray Applicator in Europe and the US, and with the constantly increasing demand for energy, water and chemistry savings, Baldwin is ready to launch its new industrial spray system for textile finishing and impregnation on the Asian market. The product will be presented at ITMA ASIA in Shanghai, October 21-26, 2016.
The Spray Applicator technology has been available in the printing industry for more than 30 years, with Baldwin’s 40,000 installed units making it a market leader. Now adapted for the textile industry, the Textile Spray Applicator system is designed to reduce the environmental footprint of the production and increase productivity, while also reducing cost. The system is equally suitable for wet-on-wet applications as for wet-on-dry.
One of the most significant benefits of the Textile Spray Applicator is the reduction in the amount of chemistry and water applied. This not only saves on precious resources, but also reduces the amount of energy required to dry the textile after treatment. This allows for significant energy savings and possibly an increase in production speed. The quick change of chemistry can lead to major productivity increases. In traditional methods, the change may take 15 to 30 minutes. With Baldwin’s Spray Applicator, the change takes less than five minutes that, with multiple changes a day, can free up hours of valuable production time.
