At the India-ITME 2008, ICOMATEX of
Spain will present the latest developments:
1- Stenter IC10 – IC8 series
2- Relax Dryer – ICORELAX
3- Coating Unit – IC801AC
4- Tubular Heatsetting - ICOFIX
IC10 – IC8 series
Icomatex will show in worldwide presentation its new technical appliances
and developments in the stenter: The ICPROD and the Free Electronic
Maintenance. Icomatex has consolidated the Management and Yield Control
ICPROD Software. ICPROD computerising system runs with a 15" colour
touch screen installed on the front panel with access to all the main
controls of the stenter.
the type of fabric, ICPROD sets the stenter automatically. Every order and
the operator are saved, the customer, the date and the time; Therefore all
the orders can be checked at any time, as well as all the other parameters.
It is possible also to check per customer to know-how much did we deliver
through the stenter in a period of time.
extra auxiliary touch screen unit is located at the exit of the machine to
allow operation of all the main commands (temperature, working width, speed,
overfeed, take out cylinder, burners, etc). This extra screen avoids also
stops of the line due to computer casualties. ICPROD offers the choice to
incorporate IC-REMOTE. This system allows the technical assistance through
the telephone line or internet without need of travelling. This
computerising configuration can be connected to all ICPROD stenters.
Free of trouble ICOMATEX stenter has been developed during 2006. The
electronic conception of the machine gives under request the possibility to
the customer to avoid the use of a non-standard electronic card. This avoids
to the minimum the problems due to electronic faults with difficult
solutions. Thanks to its design the customer can have a total knowledge of
the machine and ensure a quick post-sales service where the majority of the
elements can be found in any local shop of the country where the stenter is
On the whole, ICOMATEX
stenters, for finishing fabrics treatment, help: To obtain physical improved
fabric properties, better and bigger yield control and management of the
output and the efficiency, and making easy and practicable the ‘life’
around the machine.
Relax Dryer –
The newly developed Icomatex ICORELAX Dryer achieves the maximum quality
for all kinds of fabrics. Uses: Knitted, wovens, nonwovens, coating,
technical textiles and fibbers.
An overfeeding unit allows to feed fabric in a relaxed way to achieve a good
handling and shrinkage.
Extra units such as pad mangle for chemicals or a pin frame for fabric
control can also be installed.
The nozzles play one of the most important roles in the Dryers: The ICORELAX
uses special nozzles with a controlled “Wave” according to the specific
needs of each type of fabric. All nozzles have a “Click-cleaning” system
to split the nozzles and do the cleaning without using any tools.
The high power fans have an airflow regulation and a very compact design in
order to save the energy as much as possible.
Unit – IC801AC
The IC801AC is the new coating unit on air and on cylinder with doctor
blade, which optionally can be installed together with an screen coating
Nowadays, the heatsetting process of the knitted fabrics is complicated
and expensive for the following and main reasons: Inappropriate shrinkage
after the dyeing process & crease marks on elastane and other fibres
that are quite difficult and sometimes impossible to take away after dyeing.
The ICOFIX is an important choice to have in mind for heatsetting before
dyeing process for fabrics that the manufacturer has to hand or to deliver
in open width or tubular with the correct width, because the new process can
achieve the following strong points: • Calendar step can be avoided and
owing to this fact the marks on both sides of fabrics can be forgotten. •
Moreover the use of calendar doesn’t guarantee any dimensional stability
neither wide nor length of the fabric. ICOFIX does!!. • No sewing process
of the fabric.
The ICOFIX gives a
solution for a big deal of common problems for the dyeing and finishing
plants. This machine is supposed to put upside down the way to process
tubular knits. The ICOFIX process reaches several savings in terms of space,
fabrics, investment, people needs, process & maintenance. The
heatsetting chamber has a gas or thermal oil heating system that can allow
the manufacturer to reach more than 200ºC of temperature and also can allow
the heatsetting of the synthetic fabrics.
