"Water is for living, not for
dyeing" – the theme that runs in every campaign of Thies says it all.
The careful use of resources protects the environment and strengthens
competitiveness. For more than a century the name of Thies has been
synonymous with innovation and advances in textile finishing.

Thies has recently
introduced the first 1kg capacity laboratory dye machine to ensure ‘Right
first time’ production results with reduced bulk costs. A 1 kg capacity
laboratory dye machine, LabMaster, reproducing similar liquor ratio for
larger production batches is introduced by Thies Textilmaschinen offering
‘Right first time’ production results with reduced bulk costs.
has been designed to achieve high level reproducibility and portability in a
wide variety of applications including research and development, quality
assurance, laboratory trials. It is ideal for wet processing of narrow woven
and knit fabric samples (depending on the type of fabric to a maximum 50 cm
fabric width) produced from natural, man-made fibres and their blends. The
new LabMaster operates at up to 130ºC with a liquor ratio of 1:5 and
higher, depending on the type of fabric and fibre.

Thies other product range
includes the new MPS Colourmatic dispensing system, a new high performance
HP Batcher for preparation and winding of dye beams, a new atmospheric NT
Jigger, a new Luft-roto plus SII, and for yarn dyeing the new eco-bloc
The MPS Colourmatic dispensing system provides a precise weighing of
dyestuff ensuring ‘Right first time’ benefits. All dyestuff weighing can
out at the start of a shift with the correct quantities and mix
automatically delivered to the designated dyeing machine when required.
Thies will introduce its
first HP Batcher to provide winding and dyeing technology from a single
source. The unit unites the latest automatic control engineering benefits to
meet the customer’s requirements to batch fabrics onto dye beams. An
automatic winding processor allows precise reproduction of all winding
conditions and, in turn, dyeing results.
To meet increasing demand for
smaller batches, Thies has introduced a new atmospheric jigger suitable for
dye lots from 1,000 m. Using sophisticated control technology as well as a
new concept in spreader systems, the NT-Jigger is ideal for dyeing woven and
open width knit fabrics. At the same time it avoids selvedge curl on fabrics
with up to 40% Lycra.
For the first time the ascending
fabric passes through the units liquor nozzle before moving over the
transport winch allowing liquor ratios as low as 1:2 for synthetic fabrics
to be achieved. An air transport system ensures optimised plaiting of the
wetted material into the almost liquor-free, gravity driven, inner rotating
new T-line group controller is installed at the eco-bloc quattro which comes
with up to six single machines for small production and lab batches of yarn
dyeing. Ensuring continuous reproducibility from ‘Batch to batch’ and
‘Machine to machine’. The T-Line controller controls each function of
all machines either in single operation or coupled in various groups.
