Thies’ bleaching and dyeing solutions at Techtextil
At the upcoming Techtextil exhibition for technical textiles and nonwovens, Thies Textilmaschinen will highlight its latest trends and innovations. The manufacturer has specially designed machines iCone that can be used for a wide variety of fibres, nonwovens, yarns and fabrics suitable for a range of technical textile applications.
The company’s iCone technique bleaches and dyes fibres, flakes, yarns, cables and belts. According to the company, it also enables dyeing in short liquor. Obtaining uniform dyeing and the required fastness is self-evident. Using special energy-efficient functions the iCone is able to dye in a more cost effective and eco-friendly way. Cellulose fibres for medical purposes or any other substrate, such as polyester, acrylic and polyamide, may be used. The process can be used in the treatment of sewing threads, the dyeing and bleaching of yarns for the production of solar sails, tents, awnings and the finishing of flame-retardant yarns.
The HT-Jigger is used for dyeing fabrics, nonwovens or space fabrics. The HT-Jigger offers step less tension and speed control combined with an economical dye trough. It has been designed to offer uniform dyeing in very short liquor ratios.
