A.T.E., Matchpoint tie-up to offer DDF
A.T.E. has tied up with Matchpoint Textilmaschinenbau Deutschland GmbH for sustainable denim processing. Matchpoint, the developer and manufacturer of diamond tools for dry finishing of textile fabrics, has developed DDF – diamond denim finishing – a chemical-free pre-finish process for flat denim fabrics which supports colour-fading and stable soft-touch.
Matchpoint’s product – diamondpeach plus – has been developed specifically for the surface treatment of textile fabrics in order to create sanding/peaching effects. Matchpoint diamond emery paper can be used with different types of peaching machines. Existing sanding machines at mills can be easily upgraded with Matchpoint’s rollers to achieve micro-sanding effects. These upgrades also increase the machine productivity by 30 per cent and more.
A.T.E. is committed to provide up-to-date sustainable technology solutions to textile mills. A.T.E.’s partnership with Matchpoint is yet another step in this direction.
