Monforts, a global leader among the manufacturers and exporters of textile machines from Germany, is set to display its latest denim finishing technologies in hall W5, booth A11 at ShanghaiTex, the 18th international exhibition on textile industry, to be held at the Shanghai new international expo centre, in China, from November 27-30, 2017.
Monforts will also show the innovative ThermoStretch skewing unit avoiding the expensive need for steam-operated cylinder dryers. The new ThermoStretch skewing unit from Monforts offers new and improved features for eco-friendly denim finishing avoiding the excessive use of ‘expensive to generate’ steam that was previously necessary for the cylinder dryers; thereby replacing the need for steam-operated cylinder dryers. It also provides a much gentler treatment of the denim fabric during stretching than was previously achievable together with an optimised fabric hand.
The ThermoStretch unit also continues to be available as a ‘long stretch’ unit but without heating properties for the fabric. Monforts has in-depth ‘knowhow’ in high speed processing ranges for denim finishing with the ‘double rubber’ twin compressive shrinking unit working in tandem for working speeds even above 80 m/min.
The larger fabric content of the ThermoStretch unit in combination with the ‘double rubber’ twin compressive shrinking unit ensures minimum residual shrinkage values and highest production speeds which could not be achieved before. In the denim industry, this concept is making a significant contribution to higher productivity and lower energy consumption and the company has references in Vietnam and Mexico.
Denim technologists will be at the exhibition to offer detailed advice to visitors on the latest denim finishing processes.
Monforts will also highlight its texCoat coating processes and finishing of technical textiles, especially airbag materials at the show. Monforts is the only manufacturer that can offer completely integrated coating lines from a single source with the coating machine tailored to the subsequent Monforts drying technology.
