Americhem introducing UK Technical Centre at ITMA 2015
Nov '15
Provider of colour and additive solutions for synthetic fibres, Americhem Europe Ltd is introducing its new Manchester, United Kingdom Technical Centre at the ITMA 2015 trade show in hall 8, stand F 105.

“The facility gives customers the opportunity to develop products during a short visit and gives fibre producers access to the finest testing, research and product development expertise,” a press release stated.

“The technical centre features modern equipment designed to meet the rigorous requirements of customers in the synthetic fibres industry,” Michael Frisch, Americhem's EMEA technical director said.

“This is yet another way Americhem combines its technical capabilities and experience to benefit customers,” Frisch added.

The centre houses a fully equipped pigment lab which includes several extruders and feeders, in addition to the dedicated fibre equipment.

“The centre boasts two fibre spinning lines, one low speed spin line for nylon and polypropylene products and a low/high speed line that covers the same polymers, plus PET,” it added.

“The availability of these lines assists customers in the product development process without interrupting production on their own equipment,” Americhem observed.

Other colour textile capabilities include two knitting machines, spectrophotometers and light cabinets.

The centre can turn around customer samples in two weeks time or less and customers can receive samples in several forms including masterbatch, cardwrap, pom/hank, knitted fabric or a plastic plaque.

According to the company, customers in the EMEA region also receive the full backing of Americhem's global network of plants, as well its world headquarters and central research and development facility in the US.

Additional support capabilities through the Americhem network include a monofilament line, a spunbonded nonwoven fabric line and two brand new high speed spin lines located in the US. (AR)
