Latest dyeing machines from Thies
Hall: 3| Booth: F23
Thies Textilmaschinen will be highlighting its latest range of machines for the treatment of technical textiles at Techtexil 2019. The machines process a wide variety of yarns, fibres, nonwovens and fabrics suitable for various technical textile applications: for example aramide fibres which are used for security wear and top-end, bullet-proof automobiles.
The newly developed dyeing machine “iCone” treats yarns, fibres, flakes, cables, ropes and belts. The new technique enables dyeing in short fleet. Obtaining uniform dyes and the required fastness is self-evident. Due to the new energy-efficient (ee) functions the “iCone” is able to colour in a more cost effective and environmentally friendly way.
The Thies HT-Jigger is used for dyeing fabrics, nonwovens or space fabrics in open width form. The HT-Jigger offers stepless tension and material speed control with an economical dye trough. It has been designed to offer uniform dyeing in short liquor ratios.
Suitable to process textiles at temperatures up to 143ºC, the HT-Jigger is recommended for the treatment of crease sensitive, permeable and non-permeable fabrics; to offer optimum flexibility for finishing of all modern fibres. Key applications are the automotive sector with, for example, treatments of vehicle interiors or industrial sectors, which use filter materials.
For applications where water consumption is an important consideration, together with other possible energy savings including steam, electricity plus chemicals and dyestuffs, the well-established iMaster H20 dyeing machine is already proving successful with several automotive fabric producers. The notable process times of the iMaster H2O dyeing machines facilitate higher production capacities.
The system features a transport winch inside the kier, allowing cotton, synthetic fibres and their blends, and including articles with a high elastane content, to be processed with significantly reduced elongation; resulting in fabrics with an improved stability whilst offering flexibility in the processing of a wide range of products.
Designed for the universal dyeing of wovens, knits and nonwovens, this third generation of soft-TRD machines sets new standards in the efficient use of materials and resources.
The soft-TRD SIII is able to handle crease and surface sensitive articles at fabric speeds of up to 600 m/min. The free material flow and low intensive transport zone, guarantee optimum relaxation and uniform treatment of the entire rope. The special design with its swimming material transport provides the finisher with increased flexibility in the processing of a wide range of fabrics and material weights.
Thies Multi Product Supply- System
Chemical and dyestuff feed systems complement the product range of the German Textile machinery manufacturer, Thies. The MPS-Systems supply dyeing and other finishing machines with chemicals, dyestuffs and textile auxiliaries. The individual design and the ideal synchronisation are noteworthy.
Heat recovery system
To gain energy out of hot industrial waste water is the aim of Thies’ heat recovery systems. Special tubular heat exchanger allow high efficiencies and low payback periods. Various modern types can be connected to these systems. The Thies team of technical textiles dyeing specialists will be on hand throughout the exhibition to offer in-depth expertise and guidance.
