Monforts, a leader in textile machines in Germany, has announced that Italy’s Tessitura Oreste Mariani Spa, a company involved in making textile and apparel products, has taken delivery of Italy’s first Monforts Montex texCoat coating unit, with a new Montex 8500 stenter, at its plant in Gissano, ordered through local company, Sacconaghi-Monaco Srl.

The flexible texCoat unit is allowing the company to carry out both knife over air and knife over roller coating based on simple and user-friendly PLC techniques, with on-screen visualisation for all operating modes and recipe management for many different coating processes, all integrated in to the proven Qualitex 800 control system of the Montex stenter.

Mariani’s latest finishing line certainly further strengthens the company’s position. It is around 43 metres long and at its heart is the six-chamber Montex stenter and texCoat coating unit. The Montex 8500 stenter is distinguished by several new features, including a newly designed operator’s platform with improved access, a new and improved visualisation with modern ‘slider effect’ on bigger 24 inch screen monitors and the Eco Booster heat recovery module.

With the Qualitex 800 visualisation software, ‘finger tip’ control features offer smart phone-type techniques for the machine operators and ensure smarter operating procedures. Additional benefits allow the operator to compose and pre-programme the ‘dashboard’ of the monitor to personal requirements and preferences.

Gaia Mariani company owner said, “This change in response to the market was something of a revolution for the company because until then we had been making standard fabrics based mainly on nylon and producing bulk orders. In moving successfully into the luxury brands market, we had to review our entire operation and focus on many different types of fabric construction and designs, while at the same time shortening our production cycles and enhancing our packaging and distribution operations.”

“The machine is longer than our other working four-chamber stenter and the older one it has replaced, and by comparison, operating speeds are 30-40 per cent higher. On average, we are running each fabric four times through the stenter, to thermo-fix before dyeing, for drying after dyeing, for waterproofing and then for coating. With the texCoat, the application of coating chemicals is very precisely measured and applied,” he added. (GK)
