Monforts, a leading manufacturer and exporter of textile machines in Germany, has now emerged as a top supplier of sustainable finishing applications. Monforts vice president Klaus Heinrichs has released an article on new solutions which are now leading the race with sustainable energy savings for finishing applications used in making fabrics.

Monforts has a number of advanced technologies that can help mills who are finishing a diverse range of fabrics to achieve higher productivity and significant savings in both energy and raw materials.

The Eco Applicator soft coating unit, as a replacement to conventional padder systems, allows the very efficient application of finish coatings to fabrics via a highly sophisticated plc-controlled, so called ‘kiss’ roller system. The Eco Applicator is being made available for knitted fabrics, following the development of a guidance system specially-adapted to the needs of delicate knit treatments.

The MonfortsThermo Stretch unit for the stretching and skewing of denim fabric under steam results in a much gentler treatment than was previously achievable. This results in much less steam having to be applied. The larger fabric content of the Thermo Stretch unit in combination with the ‘double rubber’ twin compressive shrinking unit in minimum residual shrinkage values and highest production speeds which could not be achieved before.

The recent acquisition of Austria-based Timatec and the integration of its range into the Monforts portfolio has further strengthened the company’s position in respect of coating technology.

The company can offer completely integrated coating lines from a single source and the coating machine is tailored to the subsequent Monforts drying technology by offering a complete coating line from a single source – with all the benefits resulting from a fully integrated plc control.

The Eco Booster heat recovery unit was initially offered as a machine which had to be cleaned manually, but is now fully automatic, putting an end to maintenance downtime. Monforts was the first to offer heat recovery as a standard system, while all other manufacturers offered it as an option. The self-cleaning function is a significant advantage. The Eco Booster is equipped with an electric drive which makes computer-controlled optimisation of the heat exchanger’s performance to the prevailing exhaust air streams possible and the automated cleaning system eliminates down times for uninterrupted production.
